I keep receiveing their mailer with the invitation code to apply for their SImplicity at 18.99%APR and 21 month bal tr and 12 month 0 purchases.
many years ago when going through the 2008 fiasco I had 2 cards that they agreed to settle for less than owed.
On the back of the mailer they say that 4 out of 5 get approved (if received invitation) but they also list that these approved people "didn't have a card with a history of serious delinquency with them".
I guess that this makes me inelegilbe despite the fact that they keep sending me these invitations month after month for the past 6+months?
Also, I went to their pre approval webpage and it returned that they didn't find any pre qulification offers for me, but they "suggested" this same card with the same offers on the mailer.
Should I go for it or it is futile with bad previous history with them?
thanks. I figured. I rather not apply since odds aren't in my favor and I could use the HP for something else.
They do have a very useful 21 month bal tr offer though.
Any other card with such a lenghty bal tr offer out there?
I had a bad relationship with Citi when I burned them in late 2009 for over $11,000. I got back in last April with the Double Cash card with a $2,000 starting limit, and my Best Buy credit card with a SL of $3,000. So Citi definitely forgives.
Have you tried the citi pre quailifed site? I burned them in 2005, finally got back in last year. Simplicity card SL 2800 got increase to 4300 just last month, .
However I get denied for any other citi product and reason previous history, strange beast they are.
