Hi everyone! I just got the soft cli button on my Citi account this morning and so I immediately clicked it to see if I could get a cli and they gave me a $500 increase to make my total $2000. It's not a big increase but it helped me out a lot because I have been wanting to do a balance transfer around $1000 to my bank account but didn't want to do that with a $1500 limit, so that $500 increase allows me to do my transfer now .
I have only had my Citi Double Cash for just over 2 months, so you can definitely get approved for a soft cli quickly on a new Citi card and don't need to wait 6 months for your first CLI (of course after your first cli then you have to wait the 6 months in between them). The FICO8 bank score that showed in my Citi account when I got the cli approval was 694 and I was carrying a $2 balance.
Good for you, cf. Congrats! on the 33% CLI.
