The code is simply tied to an "invitation to apply" marketing solicitation similar to "pre-selected" ones that are usually sent from a third party provider on behalf of Citi and the AAdvantage program.  It is not a pre-approved or pre-qualified offer.


Figured as much. Smiley Happy All good.  AMEX is prequalifying the crap outta me right now.  Maybe I'll just get that Delta Gold in a couple of months instead. 


Very smart to check here first before wasting a HP like I had!

 

However, if you were interested in it, and knew you were rapidly increasing your scores over the next few months, I would suggest joining Citi’s FICO score card. Free and only tracks for 90 days. However, I was able to get preapproval through that instead of getting of Citi’s website preapprovals area. Go figure! Once I got all of Citi cards showing (including AA gold) I went after Citi Costco first (at the warehouse) where I app/approved.  Two weeks later I went after AAdvantage Platinum and was approved. 

 

I did this right after we closed on our house so my scores were pretty sweet to now. However the technique might help you out. 


What a fancy idea!!  Where does one go to sign up?






AMEX 12000 / PenFed 7500 / NFCU 3000 / CO 1500 / Disco 1300 / CareCredit 6000

Unfortunately, Citi no longer offers its FICO scorecard (unless you already have a card and then they offer a free FICO score). 


Boo Citi! Sorry OP! I hoped this would have helped you out!

DRAT!
