3. Citi is fickle and their reconsideration is non-existent. More than 4 or 5 credit inquiries in the last 6 months and they'll deny you and there's nothing you can do about it.
hmmm, have not run across this before
I got a personal Citi AAdvantage in December (only one because I didn't know about the 2-browser at the time
). Then in March I got the Southwest business and personal, AMEX HHonors and Citi AAdvantage business. I tried to get the Citi Thank You premiere after all of those and got a "no, denied...too many inquiries."
I reached out to Daraius and he told me that Citi likes to see low credit inquiries and not a lot of credit extended. I think one of my problems is all these fucking cards keep giving me over $15,000 credit lines
He told me to email Vikram Pandit so I did a week ago and nobody has called or emailed me back.
Now I have to lay low for 6 months before I start churning the Citi HHonors.
