Citibank DoubleCash CLI @ Activation

So, I recently received my Citibank DC card, and made my standard new CC purchase of a 12 pack of beer, but I decided I was unhappy with the starting limit of $1200 so I hit the online CLI button(the verbiage indicated that a HP will be required, but I haven't seen any alerts yet) and requested a $7500 limit(I picked the number somewhat randomly) last night. I received a message on submitting the request stating that I would receive a response in 48 hours(I assumed it was a denial) via email and within 2 weeks via mail, but I just logged into my online account moments ago to see that my new limit is $7500!

 

 I'd say a 625% CLI is worth an extra HP...

Congratulations. I just hit the love button my self for Citi Anywhere Visa. They said in 24 hours I'll get a response via e-mail. I asked to double my CL to 11, 000. We'll see what happens. Congrats!

Re: Citibank DoubleCash CLI @ Activation

Just received my card this week and went through the activation process. Requested a CLI and was denied. System only generates the message "find out if you qualifyfor a credit line increase in minutes as your credit bureau will not be affected" Gives me the same message everything I request and not giving me the option of a hard pull. What seems to be different from op situation?

I can't remember the exact phrasing, but mine definitively did not say "your credit bureau will not be affected", in fact it was closer to "we will obtain your credit report." I have no idea what the differences between our situations may be, but I'm sorry you were denied for a CLI and wish you luck going forward.
