Citi Student Card Approval with 3k CL!

Hey all, today I got approved for my second credit card -- the Citi Rewards+ Student Card with a $3000 credit limit!!! (And my Experian only went down 3 points from the hard inquiry!) I am thrilled. Just 9 months ago I had no credit history and Discover approved me for their secured card with a $200 credit limit. I recently graduated to nonsecured with a CLI to $1800, and decided I would apply for a second card. I'm a college student and my income (including money given from parents) is just $15k or so, so this is a pretty big limit for me!! Looking forward to graduating and getting a real job so I can apply for one of the Amex cards...my dad has the platinum and the metal card is just...so...mesmerizing... Anyway just wanted to share with people who also get excited about this kind of stuff!

Grats on your new student card Smiley Happy

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

Re: Citi Student Card Approval with 3k CL!

Thanks everyone!! I’m honestly super excited and proud about building my credit history and showing I’m responsible (and of course bringing my score up as much as I can)!! Started at 677 back when my Discover It opened, now up to 756! Everyone who has given me advice has been so helpful and knowledgeable about this stuff, I am glad that someone recommended I apply for a student card (was turned down by Amex everyday due to too low income, sad).
