Letter came today from Citibank

Currently, my scores are in the bottom to mid 800s  Since like forever, I keep trying the Citi prequal site but I never got a match.

 

Got this letter in the mail today (Im typing it in because I dont have a scanner )

 

Hi MeanMchine,

 

You may still pre-qualify for a Citi card.

 

Due to an error on our systems, when you recently visited citicards.com to see if you pre-qualified for a new credit card, you may have incorrectly received a message stating you didnt qualify. We invite you to check again by re-entering your information at citicards.com. Please note we can't guarantee you'll be pre-qualified.

 

Your Citi Team

 

 

Citibank and CapitalOne are the only banks that never have prequalified me for any card. Ill give Citi a try again next month

I'd get it one piece at a time
And it wouldn't cost me a dime
You'll know it's me when I come through your town
I'm gonna ride around in style
I'm gonna drive everybody wild
'Cause I'll have the only one there is around.

Re: Letter came today from Citibank

Hm, that's interesting. I wonder if they just sent that message to anyone who checked prequal within a certain timeframe. My guess is yes since it says they can't guarantee anything. Did you try again, and if so did you qualify?

Wasn't Citi the lender that was spitting out CLIs like nobody's business to someone on here about 2weeks ago? Maybe their system is still jacked up. Smiley Very Happy
