If you can provide us with a bit more information, you may get better responses.
Do you have other credit cards? Do you know your FICO scores? Have you recently applied for other credit products, anywhere, and if so, what were the outcomes?
Please let us know so we can all work to help answer your questions. And, welcome to the forums here at myFico!

IMO...I don't think CITI is an easy card to get. You have no baddies, etc....so you have a leg up. CITI/Prime Banks generally don't like baddies at all. CITI generally pull EQ most of the time. You really don't know unless you try to app is the bottom line. If your EQ is clean, at least try to get your score to 660 before apping. Good luck !!

YUDA1718, thanks for your additional input.
I don't think you have any chance whatsoever with USAA, they just don't like recent inquiries. IMO, Discover won't do much for you, either. With limited history, and low CLs, I think you'll have to build a bit more before app'ing either of them.
I'd apply for the BOA secured card, keep that for at least a year or more, use it well and pay on time (in full, if possible), and then try for other, unsecured products from other issuers. Citi is a good bet when you get to that point.
Patience pays off when you've got a long term plan. And nothing happens overnight.
I'm sure you'll do just fine in the long run.
