citi double cash: Update Approved

Hey Guys. I just applied for the citi double cash card for the balance transfer offer online but was not instantly approved. I got the dreaded we are still reviewiing your application message. It says we may post a decison within 24 hours. We'll be in touch approximately 7-10 days with a decision. Should I be worried?

Re: citi double cash

Based on the other threads I read the last hour, its still better than receiving an immediate denial.

 

I also got the same 7-10 message for the Citi Premier card. From what I understand, a majority of the users got lucky and were approved. A few were denied if they had too many new accounts/INQ recently.

Update. So I called this morning and just had to verify that it was me who applied. After that I was approved immediately for $3,000. Not a lot but I’ll take it. Atleast I got my foot in the door with citi bank.

Re: citi double cash

It could be an approval. I just read another post about someone who was approved after getting the pending message. Good luck!

Re: citi double cash

Congrats on your new card OP and welcome to the board.
"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."

citi double cash approval

I was approved for the citi double cash card, but with a low credit limit of $3,000. Is there a number I can call to try to get a human to give me a higher credit line rather than a credit line that a computer generated? Has anyone had success doing this?

First, Congratulations on your approval!  I think there is a list of backdoor numbers on a thread here you could use.
