I am sorry I would not apply for any of U.s. Altitude cards, first I would spend some time getting your credit limits on your other accounts increase, you should have some of your account have credit limits over 15K. I think you want to have at least 5 years of average history for Us bank Altitude cards they are not started cards.
Congratulations on your success ...
"Citi is not increasing credit lines at this time"
Citi is giving CLI's ...
Congratulations on your US Bank approval and Wells Fargo CLI!
Congrats, but incorrect info on Citi as they certainly are giving CLI's just got one a week or two ago.
When you call Wells Fargo for credit line increase they will not do a hard inquiry with out your Ok, you can stop the process before a HD is done. If they can approve your request with soft pull then they will do it, if they can't do an increase with a soft pull then they will ask if you want to do an hard pull at that point you can stop the whole thing.
I don't know why I hit a brick wall with Citi bank my ul is less then 1 percent my out standing balanceis less then 1K. The last time the letter from Citi bank said to many inquires and to many accounts with high balances. That is all wrong I only have 2 inquries and only 2 accounts showing any balance BOA mastercard has balance of 700 dollars with cl of 25K and my uber card has a 250 dollar balance on credit line of 12K. That what TU shows.
