Hi, I requested to close my Citi AA card, now I realize that I could product change it to Citi double cash or something instead. So I called to request for reopen, the rep said credit report will be pulled. I don't want to undergo that. So my question is, if I have to do that, does that approval succes count towards the approval card per day rule?
My thinking is since I am going to waste one inquiry anyway, might as well go for another Citi premier 60k offer right now same day to get the inquiries merged.
Unfortunately, it is unlikely that the inquiries will be merged OP. The reinstatement request is typically processed separately from a new account application.
So, if the request is success, does it count towards approved per day rule? Perhaps I should get Premier 60k first then request to reopen?
Moreover, do you know if Citi AA can be converted to Citi Rewards + ?
Thank you. Do you know if reinstatement is success, does the same card get added to my credit report with a new opening date? I am trying to stay under 5/24 Chase. If they add that reinstated card to my report, that will make me over 5 cards in 24 months.
