Re: Citibank secured credit card

I called them today,and they told me it's still being reviewed, and to call back on Friday for a final decision. Very frustrating. They pulled my money out on 2/23, and still no decision. Not too confident after Wells Fargo turned me down today for a secured card.


I applied with Addison Avenue CU last night, and they only asked us to confirm our address by faxing a utility bill. No turn down yet, so this sounds promising. I'm applying with Navy Federal CU tomorrow.I'll post the results as soon as I find out.


Good luck with you and Citibank.

If you can find local CU to join, do that. The secured cards at CU's are at much easier rates and qualifications than banks. I have one at 1000.00 and my point total has ascended tremendously by managing the balance below 9% of the limit.
