After 8 months finally got approved for cli of 4k. I now have 5 k limit. It took a hard inquiry, was not automatically approved. CR told me it will take 30 minutes to review my credit then they will call me back. After 30 minutes I got a machine letting me know I was approved..awesome.

Just tried for a CLI through the online LUV button last week, waited the six months, $0 balance, but was turned down. Current CL is $5,400, member for a little over a year. Came across an offer for the Thank You Premier so I apped for that and got $8,000 instant approval. All in all, Citi is still cool in my book.
