Citi Prestige Approved 11k woohoo

 

Excited and also pretty surprised about my new Citi Prestige approval. This was a card I had slated to apply for in 2017, but decided to shore up my lineup a bit early due to planned travel for early next year.

 

Approved for $11,000. I really didn't expect that at all!

 

Currently I have two other cards with Citi, AAdvantage and Double Cash. I've been a Citi customer since August 2015. Current Citi cards are used fairly frequently. EX pulled and no new inquiries on EX since May.

 

Next week I'll focus on closing out my Neiman Marcus tradeline of 18k to streamline my profile and get things in order of where I would like them to be (closing and consolidating cards is very much a part of the overall picture as well).

 

Very happy with the approval! We have an international trip scheduled for next year and the $250 airline credit will be helpful.

 

The 4th night free feature is a nice one as well, and it's wonderful that this feature can be used over and over with no limit.

 

 

Have a fantastic weekend, everyone! Smiley Happy

Thank you, Ysettle, I'm very excited about it! I'm glad you have the card as well.

 

Were you able to get the $250 airline credit out once the first calendar year and once several months later due to the calendar year situation? I've heard that a number of people have done that, but I'm not sure quite how to go about it. That would be amazing.

Yes. I was one of them so it is possible.
