Citi Platinum Select Question

Good Morning
Is the Citi Platinum Select a sub prime card?  How is CitiBank with CLIs and will that make a hard inq when a CLI is requested?

I believe it is a prime card, not sub-prime. For myself, they have been pretty good with CLI, but they do ahard pull when you request a CLI.

Re: Citi Platinum Select Question

I have the dividends card and when I click on the credit increase button sometimes it tells me I am preappoved and gives me a choice to accept  or decline.  That does not give me a hard inquiry.  I think it gives a hard inquiry if the preapproved message does not pop up and you request anyway.  As I got more history and my neg. items got older, then cli became more frequent (every few months) and larger.   I sometimes received cli automatically, but that was back in 2000.  Starting in 2002 I just hit the cli button on the website and accepted all the preapproved offers.
