Citi SP CLI 2x from $5,500 to $11,000!!!

Super excited this morning. My history with Citi has been as follows:

July 2017: Applied for Citi TY Preferred Student w/ $2000 limit

October 2017 (+4 months from opening): CLI to $3500

April 2018 (+6 months from last CLI): CLI to $5500

June 2018: Go on a 3-card mini app spree (non-citi cards)

July 2018: PC to Citi DC

October 2018 (+6 months from last CLI): CLI Declined. I believe it was declined because of my 3 new cards in the last 6 months

November 2018: CLI Declined. I believe the same reason

December 2018: CLI APPROVED, doubling my limit from $5500 to $11000!

 

They don't call it the DOUBLE Cash for no reason Smiley Wink I just thought this was amazing given Citi can SOMETIMES be stingey to some users. To note, I did put HEAVY spend on it in the Fall leading up to October, often having to pay it down mid-month. But I am fairly sure that my App Spree had me 'CLI-blacklisted' until the 3 cards matured to 6 months old Smiley Happy
