Costco Visa underwriting

Is it possible that Citi lowered the approval criteria for the Costco Visa? In the past couple months I was denied for the DC because of too many inquiries. On Monday I was approved for the Costco Visa for $8k. Citi pulled TU on which I have around 34 inquiries, so go figure.

Re: Costco Visa underwriting

The DC is one of their own cards and as such it most likely has higher underwriting standards than a co-branded card. Chase imposes a higher UW status on its own cards with 5/24 over co branded cards though as of late some co brands may have agreed to be included in the 5/24

Re: Costco Visa underwriting

I'm sure there is different UW for Costco compared to DC but to what extent? Who knows. People with a lot less inquiries than you have been declined and that's with 700 plus scores, so who knows exactly what their standards are or what they are looking for. Regardless of what their looking for, you got it, congrats!!

Are you a long term Costco member? Regardless, Citi liked what they saw on your profile. Not gonna lie, I would love a SL of 8k for this card Smiley Happy

IMG_2367.PNGIn my case it's a hit or miss with Citi. They either pull TU or EX but never both.

Citi Bank Costco (CBNA) pulled Experian on me and I had 2  inquiries and was approved for 2K.  My highest CL is 7K Barclays and my lowest is 2K Cap1.

I love the 4 3 2 1% setup.  4% Costco Gas 3%Resturant 2%Costco purchases and 1% everywhere else.
