Title: Citi AA signup bonus 50K, 75K, or even 100K??!!
Post by: Mikeoracle on July 29, 2010, 09:48:45 PM
There are some reports on FT of people getting offers from Citi for 75K AA signup bonus after spending $1500 and others have gotten offers for 50,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles after $750 in purchases within the first 4 months of cardmembership and 50,000 AAdvantage® bonus miles after you make $10,000 in purchases during your first 12 months of cardmembership. Fee is waived for the first year annual fee.
There are links for the personal Visa and Amex and business Visa

The big question is that since these seem to be targeted offers will they work for anyone who uses the links or only for the intended individuals. The problem is that the links go directly to apps that dont have any info about these bonuses so you cant prove to them at a later date that you used a valid app. Here are the links if anyone is interested;

For the 50K+ 50K bonus
Personal Visa;

Now that is a sweet offer!

Of course it's Citi, so major YMMV if you've gotten an AA bonus in the past.

Should not have just applied for an AA card  :(

I only had the MC and Amex so far so I just applied for the Visa. Got a message that app received and they will contact me within a week....

I applied for the 100K- I figured I may as well go for the big one- I have a year to spend the 10K and I am no rush for my points.

What do you think the chances of getting the bonus even if I wasnt targeted?

If you get the card and assuming those are the right links, 99% chance.

Do you know of a number to call them to discuss my application? I want to offer to move over some credit line from my other cards.

I also recently applied for citi. So I have to options
A) my uncle with that same name as me, apply and put down my advantage #
B) my brother apply and points go into his account the change name and merge accounts

Is it worth either one to risk my Advantage account with a couple 100k in there?

I dont remember from previous Citi apps but I saw someone mention that in the past whenever they applied with links posted online they didnt either see the bonus amounts on the app but did eventually get what the offer had stated.

I thought it was posted that the card's designation didn't matter.  Ie, if you had a personal card (regardless of whether it is/was the Visa, MC or Amex) you couldn't get another personal card (even if it was a card of a different designation).  Although you could get lucky and sneak through the cracks. 

As a related question, what if you have two AA accounts that haven't been merged.  If you've gotten the bonus on one AA account, could you apply for the card again using the other AA account?

Citi doesn't track by mileage numbers.
Either you slip through the cracks or you don't...YMMV.

True, I didnt mean to imply that I am definitly eligible for the Visa, just that since I already have the other 2 I might have a slightly better chance by applying for the Visa than for the Amex.

Update- I called the # to check Citi app status 1888-201-4523 and the message said I was denied the card. I transferred to a CSR and was told that the reason was because I already am a citi card member. I told him that I only have the MC and wanted the Visa he told me they are all considered current cardholder and if i want to discuss further i should call the CS# on the back of my card.

I was denied as well...(i currently have 2 AA citicards)

My wife was approved for the 75k one. (she never had one) Could i apply for the 100k for her today as well? any chance of getting approved? Or would the 75k one already be in the system which would get her denied on the next one (applied about an hour ago). Probably should have used 2 separate browsers...is it too late to get another app in?

Oh. I never had a biz card either. Can i do a biz card for myself if i have several personal ones?

Also, if this is really targeted, would i at least get the usual 30k? or would they give me nothing?

My wife and I just got our AA Citi Amex card giving us 35000 miles upon purchase of $750. We did not make the purchase yet but was about to via the Mint Coins.

Now I see an offer for 100,000 miles and from reading these posts it does not seem I can even get a Visa on this new offer. Is there any way for us to do this and does it pay to even try???

You can try calling and complaining that you just received a 100K offer and see what they say.

I will let everyone know what happened.  aggav I got approved for 3 cards this month 2 chase (chase continental 30K plus $50 account credit and chase freedom 0% apr offer) and now 1 citi not a bad month

Some have reported that the CSR asked to forward the email with your name and AA acct# to prove you got the offer.
YMMV

Dan, from going though the flyertalk forum on this topic is does not seem that anyone has had luck speaking to Citibank AA desk. All the agents know about is the typical 30,000 offer.

Also, do you have the link for the 75,000 offer for $1500 charged? Now that the Mint has $1000 limit its too complicated to get $10,000.

I just applied for the biz card. Got a pending app message. Called the # and after putting my info in was transferred to a rep. She was able to see it and said it is still pending. At least i wasn't denied right away:) Ive opened alot of cards in the last few months so i wouldn't be surprised if i got denied for that.

Do you put in your AA# in the app or leave it blank? I am wondering if that is another way for them to double check if you already received the bonus.

I currently have the AA visa personal and Biz, I tried to get  the Amex one a few months ago and I was denied saying I have too much credit with Citi (which is strange). Should I cancel my current AA cards and reapply for the Amex card.

Also anyone know if you can have 2 different Biz cards with AA under 2 different business and get the promos?

Post by: Yordai Dooma on August 02, 2010, 04:37:56 PM
I saw on SD that people were getting approved for the amex card even if they had the MC or visa before...I bit the bullet and went for a 6th amex card. Pending approval. Although if i get denied, im curious if it will be for having too many amex cards or having had an AA card before.

On a separate note, when applying, before you close out the page where it says that your app is being processed...right click on the page and go to "view Source" or "view page source." Then hit ctrl+F and search for the words "applicationid="

It will look similar to this: IFRAME src="https://poc.clixmetrix.com/B25E/97453071D77773E9/?ApplicationID=2010073190XXXX&Zip=xxxxxxxxxx" frameborder="0" height="1" width="1"

Use that application ID # when calling to verify your application status and the offer you signed up for.

I don't think I've ever had a Citi AA Visa or Amex, only a MC. Even if I did it was eons ago and I doubt I got the signup bonus.

I'm thinking of applying for all three 75K offers (I'm not going to go for the 100K offers, since they are contingent on 10K in spending, which I don't want to commit to ATM), but I want to maximize my likelihood of being approved for all three at one. Is my best bet to apply simultaneously using three browsers (IE, FF and Chrome)??

When you say "this offer" i assume you mean the offer we are discussing in the other thread? Why not delete this thread and post in the thread everyone is currently discussing it in? Also, if you read that thread you will see that the offer (i assume) you are referring to is only for new members...whats your question?

wow david I think you should rename yourself as "menahel of DD"

I dont mean to be a menahel. I see DD as a resource to ask questions, discuss deals, and gain from other's experiences. A resource will only be as resourceful as we allow it to be. It gets very annoying when people open new threads on the same topics, ask questions that can be answered from a simple google search etc.. I did not intend to cause any harm. It would just be nice if we could keep the forums organized instead of one big mess where people ask questions all over the place and not in the their intended threads. If Dan was around, he probably would have merged this thread into the appropriate thread already. Why do you think Dan created the Master threads in one of the other boards? To keep things organized. I dont think its alot to ask of people to search and post their questions in the appropriate threads and to see if their question has been asked already. Its common sense...

 theres Absolutly nothing wrong in pointing out to another member that instead of starting a new thread they should have piggy-backed their post onto an existing thread that deals withthat same Topic. Nor if the thread they started belonged on a different forum then the 1 it was posted on

I didnt sense David attacking ya but instead trying to Help him and others who might read the posts and learn that they too shouldnt simply start a new post if 1 already existed that dealt with that subject, and thusly before starting anew thread 1st search to see if 1 already exists

yes sometimes its nice to post where it was discussed, & in this thread it was acctually appropriate to do so (& also in the one about the starwoods fee going up) as these topics are currently being discussed on the forums.
I was more commenting on the fact that david is always the one to do so, I didn't mean it in any bad way. Sorry if it was taken like that

I saw on SD that people were getting approved for the amex card even if they had the MC or visa before...I bit the bullet and went for a 6th amex card. Pending approval. Although if i get denied, im curious if it will be for having too many amex cards or having had an AA card before.

Update: got denied for the amex card. Im assuming it was because i have so many amex cards already...Ill update once i get the letter/email

There's no connection between the number of AMEX issued cards you have and the Citi AA AMEX which is not issued by AMEX.

Officially October.
Unofficially whenever Citi pulls the URL.
In my experience that i usually later than the stated expiration date and it still works afterward, but they can always pull it early as well.

So if I apply for 2 at a time, and I get the approval on both, u think I might actually get both cards?  Or are you saying it's worth a shot.  I've got 2 computers within 5 feet of each other so I am eager to try this. 
Also if I do this is better to try visa 75k and amex 75k or visa 75k and business visa 75k or does it not matter?  By the way, thanks for this deal :)

To apply for a personal Visa and a Business Visa you dont need to do any shtick. You should be able to apply for both as they are in their own categories and having one doesnt exclude you from applying for the other.

Did you hit the submit button on both at the same time? Or did you do one and then the other? I think you have to do both at the same time so there is no record of a prior application when the "second" one goes through...

did you have other AA cards in the past? if not- which would make it seem that the denial is credit related- it's probably a good idea to check your report for mistakes/fraud anyway (and with the denial you are entitled to the report)

I have seen reports of people calling in and getting the decision reversed. I plan to call myself and try and get at least one reversed. Ill report back how that goes.

Update: I tried a few times. No go on getting the decision reversed.

On a separate note, it seems the Business cards take quite a while to process...has anyone else experienced that? Its been pending since Friday...

Weird data point;
A friend of mine has an active Citi AA card for the last few years and applied for the 75K promo and got the message that he will receive a letter in the next few days with their decision. He just assumed that like everyone else he was probably denied because he is not a "new cardholder".
Today he got a congradulations email that he was approved for the card- and the kicker is that they said he already had the maximum amount of credit with them so they were moving a few thousand $ from his current active (Citi AA) card to this new card! So it is not even like his other card was missed by their system they actually acknowledge the card.
Is it maybe because his Citi AA is now a bronze card (lowered from regular card a few years ago)?

For those still pending on Business apps, when you call the # posted earlier it automatically transfers you to a rep when you put in your reference #.
The reason is because that is the phone # for the personal applications.

For the status of  your citi- business applications call this # 800-288-4653
The prompts are basically the same... 1, 3, 2, ssn#, home ph, DOB(mm/dd/yyyy)
Or 1, 3, 1, reference #, SS#, DOB

If you already have the AA citi MasterCard and visa, you will likely be denied anyway as its only for first timers. Perhaps you would be approved for a business card. Not sure about the credit score needed though. Maybe someone who just got his/her score with the equifax freebie from last week can chime in that they get approved and what their score was...

If you can afford it then it is worth a shot. As I posted earlier my friend was not only approved even though he already has a Citi AA card they even moved some credit from his other card to this new one since they didnt want to give him more credit.
On the other hand I wasnt approved because of my other cards...

I would say a very good chance. ours took about a week. It just means no one reviewed it yet, IMO.

I did not put in my AA numbers. I got two denial emails two days after I applied for all three cards.

The business one was denied because I once had an AA business card :(

One of the personal ones were denied because 'You have submitted multiple applications for credit.' This is even though I used a different browser and submitted them at the same time (the applicationID for both cards were one digit off). At least for the other personal app they are saying it is still pending, I guess I will wait and see.

Sweet! Exactly 1 week after applying the 2 business card apps (1 for the wife) finally came out of processing and were approved. Another 200k AA miles, here we come. The phone number and prompts to check status on business cards was posted above: post 106
How do you know which is "POST 106"?

How do you know which is "POST 106"?

Post 106:

For those still pending on Business apps, when you call the # posted earlier it automatically transfers you to a rep when you put in your reference #.
The reason is because that is the phone # for the personal applications.

For the status of  your citi- business applications call this # 800-288-4653
The prompts are basically the same... 1, 3, 2, ssn#, home ph, DOB(mm/dd/yyyy)
Or 1, 3, 1, reference #, SS#, DOB

Can't you see the posts are numbered? This one is post 132 in this thread.

So with that being said, is it not worth it to try the three browser thing?

Got my Biz card in the mail today. They gave me a whopping $1000 "kiddie limit". I'm not sure how I'm gonna spend 10k within 12 months without going over my limit or better yet without utilizing more than 50% of the limit. This is my lowest credit limit yet. Most of my other cards are 15-20k. I submitted a request for a higher limit which they declined. I asked them to move some of my credit from one of my other card to which they replied that they don't do that anymore...

Anyone have thoughts on this?

How can I up my score? would it help to reapply putting in a higher income - how high? also does it hurt my score to apply for a card - is it worth a shot for the business? any ideas?

80k or 90k in economy depending on how you book it.

We got approved for the business and personal visa 75k, hoping to go to israel on elal, how do you book it for 80k, the aa website shows 45k required each way?

So I tried doing two personals for my wife, the AMEX was approved instantly (interesting because I wouldn't have applied for it being that she couldn't get the *w recently) the visa was being processed. I just received an email stating: "Here's what you should know The application was processed by a credit scoring system that assigned a numerical value to various items on your application and your credit bureau report. The information did not score a sufficient number of points for approval. " Which I find surprising because Amex was the only one she didn't get approved for in the past!

i had the same thing. declined for the visa for the same reason but then tried the amex and got instant approval. its weird cuz they told me that since this is a high tier card and has strict requirements the neg's in my credit report (recently opened cards with not much history on them) had me declined- yet i got approved for the amex a day later.... but i have always have good experience when applying for an amex.

You can't compare a *W to a Citi Amex. The *W is actually issued by Amex, they assume the credit risk, (in my experience) they typically have more rigorous criteria compared to Citi. The Citi AA Amex card processes on Amex's payment processing network, but is issued by Citi.

If he was approved for both cards and he spends the minimum amount he will probably get the miles for both cards.

Maybe s/he should try applying, who knows, maybe s/he'll get approved.

By the time s/he is 18 s/he will have a 15 year old credit record.

"And" why would you put down a fictitious amount? ??? ???

If you are still single and live with your parents (which i gather you are) and still a dependent, you are allowed to include your parents income in your "household income." Perhaps that would help.

 I cant remember the last time I actually put down the true #s, I make mine up all the time. That said if a person is young say <30 and put down a high # then I can see where it will raise a Red Flag although plenty of under 30s make in the 6 & 7 figures, the Banks just want to make sure its the case. Under 25 is worse yet.

 1 way around it is if you have  5 figures sitting in various accts with the Bank, if they pull your SS# then they will see what you have sitting with them and will more likely not bother a person about sending in additional info to them. Id say North of at least 25k

I have always put down my exact income and my credit limits are just fine. (Except for my last card where they said i have too much credit out there) When i was single, i put down my household income including my parents income. Perhaps that changed with all the new credit card rules. The CSR used to always say that you should include your parents income when giving household income...

i just applied for the amex plat and it said "under 21 include your salary and other income" which sounds like they dont want you to include your household income even if you are a dependent

It must be something to do with the new credit card guidelines. It makes sense that one should not be able to include their parents income. Yet, years ago when i was in that situation they always told me i could/should.

Thank you for applying for a CitiBusiness(R) Card account.
 Please note the following regarding your application:

 o   In evaluating your application, we have been unable
 to verify your business and/or home address.

So first i called the rep and got nervous when they wanted the verification (since i really don't even have a business) but then a few days later i called back and asked them to REsubmit the application (i regretted giving up so easily) and asked what i needed to do to verify, and they told me that i needed to send a utility bill with my name (which i don't have) So she told me to send her two bank statements, (with my address so they can verify it) One savings account statement and one checking account statement. so i faxed in my Chase Continental Business checking statement along with another savings account statement...

I still doubt i'll ever get the card but i'm glad i tried

I would think you would get the card assuming everything is ok aside from the verification. They just want to make sure your are legit. What business name did you use for the card? I always use my name as the business name. If you did the same, it should be easy to verify yourself

Oh i forgot to mention that when i first submitted the application i put the business under my nickname, but when i asked them to resubmit it i asked them to change the business name to my real name b/c i realized it would be much easier to verify. They gave me no problems with changing it. My major worry aside from the verification is my credit score which is not that great

lately they have matched spending patterns on credit reports to income claims, and they'll ask for verification if it doesn't match up (I personally know of such a case where 100k was claimed income and he was told that he's not spending like 100k!).

Applied for a card and got this back:

The minimum amount of credit we would issue, when
 added to your existing credit obligations(which includes
 outstanding lines of credit), would excessively increase
 your debt burden in relation to total income provided.
 If you feel your stated income on your application
 may be incorrect, please call us at 1-888-201-4523.  You do
 not have to disclose alimony, child support, separate
 maintenance income, or any other income unless you wish
 us to consider it with your application.

I have another citi card (not AA) with a 9k limit 0 balance do you think they would transfer some of the credit line over?
Any other ideas what to do?

thanks

Just got off the phone with them. Begged and pleaded my case. They said as long as you have had any type of Citi AA card, I'm not qualified for this offer. I asked if they can just slide me into another offer (like the 30K) and they said it has to be seperate application. I asked about my credit report (I implied that they had send me an invitation) if they can remove that inquiry and they said NO.

Mind you that my wife has had Citi AA cards and they approved her for the 100K card the same day I applied for mine.

Maybe I shouldn't have been a chazer and just gone for the 35K.

I guess like you always say, YMMV.

Citi automatically searched for an AA account under his wife's name and address and corrected the AA number on their own.

Just applied for an AA AMEX and Visa Consumer card using FF/Chrome trick.
Instant approval on both...holding my breath now for them to come!

I still have an AA AMEX and MC consumer card open with massive credit lines.

Didn't apply for a business card as I'm still within 90 days of my last AA business card.

Old story if you search the forum.
Fill out each application in separate browsers and click ok at about the same time on both, so they cant say you already applied for one, because they both process the same time.

familiar with that, thought it might be a new trick to help with citi's latest no churn policy.   pretty amazing that you got two approvals even with two active cards.      did you leave blank the ff# or use a new aa account #?

i am so jealous! I did all 3 applications (100k links) together in 3 browsers 2 weeks ago (and i havent applied for any in the last 6 months, but have a few current active ones) and I got declined on both personal for being "an existing cardmember" and "multiple aplications" on the biz one!!! I'm assuming that the Business one went thru a second later... BUT HOW DID YOU GET APPROVED WITH OPEN AA CARDS!!!!

It's YMMV.
It's very possible they'll still deny me (even after instant approval) because I've gotten the bonus in the past.

They told me I was refused from that specific offer. They told me openly that I could apply for another offer.

Dan, you went for the 30K or the 75K?

Is the 30K deal right now still the best deal after the 75K-100K?

It's got nothing to do with the offer.  I've been rejected for the 30/35K offers and later accepted.
I went for the 100K this time.

Closing existing cards in order to apply for this offer better your chances to get approved?
If yes, does it matter if someone applies right away after closing the previous card, or better to wait sometime to apply?
If after all this they get rejected, can they own a AA citicard in the future (even one without a signup bonus, just good enough to get mileage for their purchases)?

I just called AA to get some canceled miles reinstated. I got it done through applying for the 50,000/100,000 mile AA citi AMEX card. (which have posted already btw)
Anyways, as I was hanging up the lady asked if I'd like to sign up for the citi mastercard or visa and get 30,000 points. I asked her if I would get it even though I already got a sign up bonus. She said that the AMEX isn't connected to the VISA/MC and that I would get it again even though they're both consumer cards. I said I wasn't interested so that I can go to the link and get the 75,000. Anyone else have any experience with this?

YMMV of course and worth a try but I wonder if they would let 1 person get 3 cards.  Has any ONE person gotten 3 cards for themselves, not for spouses?  I read from the end to this point and lots at the beginning too and on FT and haven't seen 1 person getting more than 2 either 2 pers or 1 pers 1 biz.

My experience was back in August, I used a similar trick to FF/IE, using 2 comps (worked for others) I got no email, so I called for a status update and CSR said I was going to get a letter and by the way there were 2 open apps.  I just said mmmhmmm,.  Few days later I got a request for more info but only on 1 of my attempts.  Also applied for biz 1 wk after original app for 2 pers, mid August .  Was denied due to multiple applications for credit.
Today CSR told me they got my additional info on my pers and that it would take time to process etc.  I asked about my BIZ card and he said you are only allowed 2 apps, at any time.  I asked what if it's a different biz, and CSR said it's got nothing to do with it, it's tied to SS#.  Said that I couldn't apply again for Biz this month, it would be a bit more than a month but he wasn't allowed to tell me an exact date when I could apply again... so to me it sounds like 90 days is probably about right between biz apps.
I think I will reapply for biz at the very end of the period, because what do I have to lose, especially if I get denied and don't get any pers.  At this point I doubt they will approve me for both pers, because they seem to be on to us :)

I hope they don't read DD/forums :) :)

Hmm...have to think.  I know I got the CO Onepass plus (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/onepass/), Discover more (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/discmore/), and SPG AMEX (http://www.dansdeals.com/go/starwood/) since 06/30.

Its been asked several times on this forum and every other forum. A good idea would be to google the letters when you see abbreviations that you dont understand. It wont always work, but often will give you the answer.

It stands for "your mileage may vary" as in you may not get the same results as others got.

I still don't understand how not once did you contact Citi and they put your social into the computer and up pops like a hundred closed accounts. Do all banks not have the capability to view all past/present accounts per social #?

All the old account used to show up on citicards.com but BH now only the active ones do.

Anyway even if they see all the old account they must like me!

both cards were approved (for the 100k bonuses) and i received the cards yesterday. when i activated i confirmed with the rep that both bonuses are listed on the cards!

Just received the 150k miles in wife's account, (business and personal) it made me want more but I have already an aa mc for which i received 30k miles not long ago. Trying to see how to get more miles- dont have a business and dont want to create one for this. get one for kids? The minimum age is 18, I guess i am left trying for the amex card but from what I have read will most likely reject since i have a card. Is it worth it to try? Will they do a hard pull on credit and then tell me i'm rejected since i'm a cardholder, or if they are going to reject for that reason they don't check credit?

they can pull your credit report and then claim you are an existing member. Yeh, i know that's not fair...Why not open the biz card? I think you have a better chance with that. And you dont need any "business". Its no big deal...

correct. in your case you got denied "due to multiple aplictions" (if you applied within the last 60 days for the visa) so that never goes thru. However, if the only problem is "existing card member" then it will pull your credit report.

business name "churn away" and income is "75k". Sounds good? Honestly, name makes no difference, and income put the same that you do on the personal and hope to get approved!

I would advise against that business name, since sometimes applications are reviewed by humans, that one would immediately raise a red flag.

No need to apply for biz and personal at the same time, they are treated as two separate products.

I would think, that a new address would be worse, since as you stated that you recently moved, none of the credit agencies or citi would know your new address, and it would cause them to question that part of your application.

Let's try an SAT analogy question.

United Visa::AA Visa.
SPG AMEX::AA AMEX.

Or in plain English, neither of those cards have any connection or impact on the other.
Why did Citi deny you for the AA Visa?

Always worth a try. Your Starwood has no connection to this.

I wouldn't pay back the loan by doing a balance transfer just for the hope of Citi approving you, unless the terms of the new loan are better then the student loan, which I think is unlikely.

If you've been paying on time every month to Citi then I'd think it would raise your chances of getting another credit line from them, not lower it. Unless there are other factors like maxing out credit utilization on that loan that are hurting you.

Do you know if your credit score is currently good? Your Looking for scores in the 700 range (FICO)

I always try to do 3 apps at once using IE, FF, and Chrome.

This past time I did just 2 and applied for the business a week later.  I got the 2 but didn't get the business because of getting the 2 cards the week before.

I tried applying for the personal and business card at the same time (different browsers), the business app. went through but on the personal app. i got an error message telling me to try later. Am I going to be able to apply later or will it get shot down due to many applications?
Update: I applied for the personal a few days later, got approved now I'm waiting on the business app!

i'm referring to my original post of   "
i applied for the citibusiness and got an email asking me to call them to verify my business address. i called and they said they need two documents, either bank statements/utilitity bills/phone bills/articles of incorp etc.   anyway, i have none of those. anyone have any ideas?"
i have a business acount with chase but not the same name as the one on the app, i was wondering if anyone has tried changing the name of a business account with chase?  do they make a big deal out of it?

Why don't you change the Business name on the app to your own name (as was suggested previously)? Then, you could send anything with your name.

I always try to do 3 apps at once using IE, FF, and Chrome.

This past time I did just 2 and applied for the business a week later.  I got the 2 but didn't get the business because of getting the 2 cards the week before.

In other news just my other 100k signup bonus today.  I hope those links stay live for a very long time!

Does that make 200k for you?  Or is that 100k in addition to your 2 75k offers?

I messed up bad.  Applied for biz 75 days after last biz, denied of course because 2 many apps  --- rep said needed 90 days and gave me the exact date that I could have applied.  Anyway to get them to 'retract' the application? 

Applied for only 1 pers 65 days after last 2 pers were denied and they are sending me letter for more info... hope at least I get 1 pers.

Datapoint:  Supervisor very clearly said 60 days between pers cards 90 between biz apps.  She also said can only have 1 pers & 1 biz app at same time and we know better :)

Hi all,
Im an old follower, but first time poster!
Just wanted to know what is required to apply for a business credit card?
I have a regular card by AA CITI MC, and just this minute recieved from them an invitation to their business credit card to get 40k aa miles for 1k spend in first 4 months.
I dont have a business can I open? Thanks

Yes you can open just put your ss# instead of a tax id#. Dont apply with your link for 40k bonus miles rather apply for the visa business which is giving 75k after $1500 in purchases in   the first 6 months

does it cost money to merge two acounts of the same person like in your situation.
its a little odd that they did that i would think that  they would open a new account for you, any explanation?

I’ve printed and reviewed this thread (although I had to skim a lot of it since it’s so long).  But, I would like to apply for these offers before they expire and am looking for the best strategy. 

Background: 

- I have a Citi AA MC that I've had open for a number of years that has a large balance at a 1.9% rate for life. 
- My wife had a personal AA Citi MC card years ago (been closed for over 5 years). 
- We each applied for and received the Citi Visa Business Card on June 30, 2010 (only got 35k miles). 

In light of the above: 

1.   Should we each apply for both personal cards (simultaneously with different browsers)?  If not both, which one should I pick (the Visa or Amex)?  I know its YMMV with Citi and we need to “fall through the cracks” to get another card --- we’re willing to take the risk unless the odds are so long that it doesn’t make sense. 

2.   It’s been 90 days since we applied for the biz card, but the accounts are still open.  Is it possible / worth applying again?  If so, would I do these at the same time as the one/two personal applications? 

Thanks in advance!

If you read the entire thread you'd know the answer to both your questions is....

...You guessed it! YMMV. Everything is possible with Citi, no one here can tell you the odds (anyone who claims they can, and doesn't work for Citi, is either guessing or lying).

My answer for you is it's worth a shot for the 75,000/100,000 miles, but set your expectations low.

I applied for the 75k mile offer and just got my cards in the mail, although I never received a confirmation email.

However, my AAdvantage # is not on the cards. How do I know what my number is and if I will be getting the 75k miles?

Thank you. I just applied, about 5 minutes before the promotion officially ended. New AAdvantage number too.

I got the nefarious 'application received' screen:

Thank you AsherO. We have received your application and further processing is required at this time. We will contact you within a week via email regarding our decision. Thank you for requesting a Citi Select® / AAdvantage® American Express® card.

Wife instantly approved for both personal cards (despite having the cards years ago).  I was instantly approved for the Amex personal and got "application received" for the personal visa (I currently have an open Citi MC personal).  Didn't do the biz apps (we both got biz Visas in June).

So you're maintaining that it's likely the old links will require the lower spend requirement? Maybe poublicize that so people use the old links while they are up.

On a sad note, both my subsequent apps (biz and amex) failed. One for multiple apps (biz within 90 days), and one for being a current aadvantage member. I'm going to try letter-writing this time.

I've probably churned more AA cards than anyone in the world.  I've always gotten the amount of miles originally promised even after the stated expiration.
I was getting the AA 25th anniversary bonus miles for a good 2 years before they finally deactivated the link.

Of course, YMMV.

Uh no, at least not yet, for sure... you are reposting an FT or SD deal that doesn’t work.   Or are you the OP of the deal on FT?

Someone on FT was playing with the orig link and found this, he admitted it. Someone else posted it on SD and it’s been bounced around from there.

I like DD because I don’t have to weed through all sorts of nonsense. So please try it, before you buy it.

I got FR'd by Citi!!

Seeking advice, a little background first:

I currently own a AA MC and a AA VisaBusiness.
Applied for all 3 cards and got the following:
-Got instantly approved for the Amex pers, but still didn't get it in the mail, although I applied on 10/27.
-For the VisaBusiness got the following message: A system error has caused a delay in processing your application. Be assured that we have received it and there is no need to resubmit. We will contact you at the mailing address you provided as soon as it is processed. Thank you! (haven't heard from them since)
-For the Visa pers. I got a letter requesting a 4506T form "to further consider my application", the same form that people have to send in when they get FR'd.

Now the questions:
The amount I put in on the application is far bigger than the real amount I make on the books. Should I send in the 4506T anyway, or is there a way to fight it otherwise?
If I send in the form and it gets ugly, do I have to worry about my currently open accounts to be reduced the CL or closed down?
Should I wait to send in the form until I get my Amex in the mail?

Will Citi tell you what AA number is associated with the account?  My wife applied and included her AA number on the app, but no miles posted to her AA account after her statement closed --- I'm guessing that they created a new AA number for her.  No AA number is printed on the cards.

mine was pretty simple. accidentally signed up for the citi amex for 30k miles instead of 40 got immediately approved. the next day i called the number above and signed up for the 75k miles citi world mastercard. After 5 days received an approval email. I await both cards. Looks like Hilton Queen of Sheba hotel in Eilat will be free with 2-1 ratio (hilton gold via amex also)

Applying for 100K miles second time after 60 days didn't work after success first time. Would like to apply now for my wife post 100K churn (60 days later) and see if I have better luck. I see some 40K offers. Any reason why I shouldn't do that or that also "only for first timers". Do I just be happy and go for 30K offer on site (which churns great) instead of being chazer and getting nothing? Anyone churn anything after 100K offer and succeeded?

Well I tried Dan's 30K link 60 days after my 100K fest and this is what I got:

o   This specific offer is valid only for first-time Citi(R)
 / AAdvantage(R) cardmembers.? Our records indicate that
 you previously had a Citi(R) / AAdvantage(R) account
 with us.

I tried for my wife and she got the same message. Anyone have any better success?

Dan, do we need to sit out for a year like you did or are we still saying YMMV?

I applied through the link for the 75,000 bonus but just got an email that because I already have a citi AAdvantage card (got it in June) I can't be approved.  Any chance if I apply for one of the other bonus offers like the one being offered now that I'll get approved?

Also I applied for a Citi AAdvantage business Visa card and listed my business as a sole proprietorship but they still want something to prove the address of my business.  Any suggestions on what I should do?

Thanks,

-Doubtful.  Wait 60 days and try again.
-Tell them it's a new business based from your home address?

do you know if it hurts my credit that they didn't approve me?  Is it by chance if I apply again in 60 days whether I'll get approved or not?  Anything I can do to make it more likely to happen?

Is it only with citi that you can't open another one.  For example if can I open another Spg card if I opened one in July?

I"ll call them and tell them it's a new business.  I'll let you know what happens.

Post by: Yisrael on December 22, 2010, 08:03:06 PM
So it's basically luck with Citi...Is there a time amount that you recommend usually waiting before applying for the same card again to get the bonus?

Would it be worth it to cancel a card early and then reapply for the bonus or is it better to wait until the free year is up and then downgrade to a free one and then open a new one?

Do you know if it affects credit when not getting approved?

Thanks,
Yisrael

could you open a 2cnd AA account under the same name and merge them? is there a cost?
they avoid giving a 2nd card-trying to prevent churning. closing the card might improve chances of 'getting it by'

  Anyone know?  Is there a number at Citi (like at Chase) that I can call to ask them to reconsider and/or move credit?
1) just spoke to aa advantage customer service they said you could merge 2 accounts as long as they are the same name
2)1-800-645-7240 this is the credit department/applications they could help you,

just applied for the business card, and got approved instantly!!!!!!!!!! i figured, i'm planning to cancel the card after i get the points so the business card is probably the best one, bc cancelling won't affect my credit score.
i just hope i'll get the 75k for it, but even if i don't, the current citi offer for this card is 40k so i figured its totally a win-win situation.

i know i'll get it, i'm just saying that even if i don't (i thought i saw YMMV) it's still worth it, bc 40k, and no credit score hit is a great deal as well.

got 75k and 40k.. i then complained, they opened a case, sent a letter stating they have no indication of me opening with that promotion.. i sent the letter back with an attachment of a 75k offer i googled..

on jan 7th they said they have added 20k to my account.

so bottom line - got 75k and 60k... not bad for opening 2 cards within a week of eachother

I too don't think you're worried, but customer service (CS) can't (always?) see your new account, sometimes it's still with the 'new accounts' department.

You may have called the 'right' number and gotten through to the wrong rep. Either way, what's the rush. Anyone who's used the link so far got the 75k (unless it wasn't their first card, which in your case it is).

So here is my mistake and now I need to fix it: I applied for the citi amex 75k bonus but bc they had sent an offer via snail mail and I applied online with the wrong linky, I got a card that did not have the first year's fee waived (forget if it was $60 or $75 for the year) and they refused to refund the fee (should probably have just spoken to a supervisor but I didnt), so I canceled the card, figuring I would re-apply online. But when I reapplied they said offer only for first time applications. So the question is - please help! how can I get the card and miles now??

They sent me an email saying they needed to speak with me so I called them.  Then they said I had to give them documentation that I had the business such as lawyers letters, or bills with the name of my business on them.  I told them it was a sole proprietership so I didn't have such things.  They said without two forms of proof that my business exists they couldn't open it so they closed the application.  :(

Lol...no.

I got approved for a 100k Visa and AMEX card when it came out and have tried every 60 days or so since then without luck.
is it worth trying every 60 days and having a new citi inquiry on your credit report every 60 days?

Just applied for all 3 100K cards in a shot.
Got approved for the Consumer Visa instantly.  We'll see if it comes now or if I get the dreaded "first-time customer" letter from Mr. Pick.
Currently have an open AA Consumer Visa, MC, AMEX, and a business card.
dan let us know how many hits you get from the 3 inquiries!
also why didnt you close any of your cards before reapplying?

For all those that are nervous to sign up for a card without knowing if the offer is still
available... Here is a new link with landing page and all for the 75k offer. Only downside is that you need
 to spend 4k instead of 1.5.  If anybody still has the landing page for the 50k/100k offer, please
be sure to post it. Good luck!!

Call them and see if they'll reopen the first card. Then make sure you get the miles.
Applications wont re-open the card (more than 3 months since it closed - i took my time unfortunately).  I explained that I was a first time AAdvantage customer approved for an amex, but canceled before ever using the card. They said bc I had a card even though I didnt use it I am not technically a first time applicant. Applications said take it up with customer service. What is the best course of action when I speak to the csr?

Hopefully you confirm receipt of the card soon enough, if you get it I think I'll go for another round too.

What I don't get is how you could possibly get approved if Citi checks your SSN for prior cards/approvals.

Dan has his ways...

Wooohoooo!

Applied for both personal 75k cards at the same time.
After the app, a box popped up on both apps to chat and confirm my info.

I clicked on both and chatted with 2 differant reps.

The Amex card rep responded first after confirming my info and wrote:
Ok, upon reviewing your application, approving it won't be a problem for me. I'm just looking at the amount to approve it at. I can go ahead and approve it for $2,000 or if you want a higher credit line, I can go ahead and move some credit line over from your Citi Bronze Card. I can move the maximum of $6,000 over to make your new credit line $8,000 and your old card will still have a credit line of $9,000. Which do you prefer?

The visa card rep then wrote:
I see that you have 2 existing cards with us, sir. And we most certainly appreciate your business. What I can do today is go ahead and approve this new AA Platinum card with a credit limit of $2,000. Or, I could move $5,000 from your existing AA Bronze Advantage mastercard's credit line to this new card. That would decrease your credit limit from $15,000 to $10,000 on your AA Bronze card, but then I would be able to approve this new AA Platinum card for $7,000. Would you be ok with that?

On the amex, i let him move some credit over. For the visa, i took just the 2k so it wouldnt trigger a red flag when they pull all the credit from it.

For the second card, she said she was having computer problems. Then she said she approved it and was sending it the next department to be finalized. She said she approved it already on her end...We shall see what happens...

This will be awesome if they actually arrive. Another 150k!!!
Wondering if i should i go for another in the wife's name...

Just applied for an AA AMEX and Visa Consumer card using FF/Chrome trick.
Instant approval on both...holding my breath now for them to come!

I still have an AA AMEX and MC consumer card open with massive credit lines.

If you reapply for the AA card every 60 days that's 12 inquiries in 2 years (the length enquiries remain on). Add to that all the other cards and it just seems like there would be many enquiries and still no denial for that reason...

Tried for 75k amex and visa. The only card I have with them is a MC opened in June for a small 25-30k bonus. Response is "further processing required"

denied both,  This specific offer is valid only for first-time Citi(R)  / AAdvantage(R) cardmembers.
I am not a big churner either.

I currently have 4 Citi credit cards 3 consumer and 1 business card, and I was just approved for a consumer 50k/100k card. I would like to apply for another Citi business card. Do I need to wait? Does anyone know their policy (if the have one).

I am happy to report that I was able to open the Amex consumer on my wife's name but with my AA number. After meeting the treshold the first moth, I received the bonus miles, as well as the regular miles in my AA account.
My question is:
Is it risky to continue using this credit card? Could it be that Citi will catch on to it, so better off keeping a low profile and cancelling before the year is up?

Does the link work for the 75k with 1500 in spending even though it doesn't say it on the application page?
my husband got approved through that link for visa and for the amxe over the phone within about 10 minutes of each other.
I got declined for the visa because i had signed up for the 30k last year.  do i have any other options to get this bonus? Will I have any better luck with a business card?

My wife was denied the citi aa card. I called to ask why (her credit is in the high 700's) and they said there were 2 problems with the application-too many credit inquiries recently and too many young credit cards (they are afraid she has extended her credit too thin).
So it does happen.

A friend of mine is willing to open CC on his name and give me the points, so I was trying to figure out what would be the best bet. I figured that 75k AA miles would be a god bet, however, I'm still trying to figure out how this can be done. I read that some people have opened AA cards with someone else's frequent flyer number. Is it possible? Is it risky? Should I open a new frequent flyer account for this and then merge them? Or could someone recommend the best bet, thanks.( I hope that this is the right forum for this).

Hey guys,

I need an advice. I've been churning AA citicards in 2008-2009, but then I was shut down for the personal cards due to first-time clause. Right now I'm planning to apply for AA Biz Visa card. I currently have an open AA Biz MC card which has been open for 18 months and the "business name" is my initials. Before that card, I had 2 other AA Biz MCs. All were under my SSN, rather than EIN. At the end of 2009, I opened AA Biz Visa under a different "business name" and with an EIN. Initially I used my SSN, but was declined due to a first-time clause. I then called in and asked to resubmit it with EIN and was approved. So I had 2 biz cards at the same time. I closed the Visa couple months ago.

So this time around, I was hoping to open AA Biz Visa under my own full name. But should I use my SSN or EIN?  Thanks.

If you apply with EIN number, don't they still go by your SS #?

Even if it officially expires, the app might still be up, and (with Citi) it seems that you get the miles as long as you use that app, get the card and fulfill the spend requirement (even if the offer was pulled).

Okay, I looked at it more carefully now, there are two cards, a world MC and Amex. The enclosure says these replace my original mc (and the mc is the same number). And they enclosed an amex card for good measure("now you have two cards to earn more miles"). They earn 1.2 miles per $1. I was confused since I just applied recently for the new cards, visa and amex. Seeing the amex card threw me off. From the enclosure it looks like they issued an amex card without me asking for it. But since I did apply is it possible that I'd still get the miles?

If it's not related to your app then that's doubtful, but you can try to ask for it and get compensated for thinking it was that. 1.2 miles per dollar spent is nice though. I wonder if they offer that on Visa/MC as well...

I just applied and got approved for both personal Visa and AMEX 100k AA cards, and I've been a churner. I applied for both in two different browsers at the same time. The last time I got approved for any personal AA card was over a year ago (but a few apps and denials in between). I'm holding my breath until I actually get those cards in the mail.

For someone who never had a Citi AA card before, Id' apply for 2 or 3 in one shot (different browsers). They'd likely get at least one. Though nothing is certain with Citi, it's all YMMV.

The second post in this FT (http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/milesbuzz/1110784-american-airlines-card-75-000-sign-up-bonus.html) thread has a pretty good summary.

Seems I'm not the only one who got double cards, on FT there is a thread about it, I'm just a little upset since they got my hopes up that I was approved. I will not be activating these cards, and soon will probably cancel my whole account with them with hopes to apply sometime for a bonus.

(just for the records i will explain you my options if i got the 75k card and spend 1500 witch i am able to, value of aa mile 1.5 cent, is about $1147 getting the 100k card after spending 10k, 110k miles would value $1650 that puts me $500 ahead so if charge me 2 cent and charge me for 10k miles i lost nothing, i would be in trouble if they came down hard on me

Title: Quick citi CC question
Post by: mordylich on March 09, 2011, 10:11:11 AM
I've been rejected before for the 75k offer, but it's time to reapply.  I've never been approved for this card.  should I apply with my AA FF number or leave it blank?  Also, should i log into my existing account so that it auto-fills?  does it make a difference?

I know i've seen this somewhere on the threads, but can't seem to find it now.

Thanks!

  if the actual application page doesn't mention the 75k offer will it still work?  I've cleared browsers, tried both FF and IE, but no change.  Dan says the offers never expire...so, what do I do?

Yes, it will still work. You can confirm with CS which offer you signed up for. I and many others have used the old links like Dan suggested and still received the original bonus. As long as the links work you're good to go.

by any chance, do you have contact tel # for CS?  Any number as well to ask them to potentially move around credit from another card?

Citi tracks by your social, so it'll be ymmv, different FF#s won't help.. Put through three apps for the 3 different 75k offers in three browsers, submit them simultaniously and see what happens.

Use three different browsers (IE, FF, Chrome) and put in all your info into the three different Citi applications (Visa, AMEX and Biz Visa), then hit submit on all three applications at (just about) the same time.

I successfully received two cards using this method just recently.

Not just for the few, it also improves your chances of getting approved for one, and it's (more?) likely to only hit your credit report with one inquiry.

I helped my parents apply for this card (they each have Citibank card alread), and at the end of application they were told to call 800 number. Called, just verified their info, and told my father that eventhough he has current AA card with 60K credit line, they want to approve him. What's up with that? Why the phone call?

When I tried that, they left me in the dust.

YMMV. It's really a hit or miss (read the entire thread).

Mike is right, if you're going to try for the others use the link in the OP. Might want to wait 60 days (from your first app) as it's much more likely you'll get 'too many applications' if you try now.

I successfully received two cards using this method just recently.

I just submitted apps for all three 75k offers using 3 different browsers.  I didn't get immediate approval with any of them. 

On on of the applications, the screen says "We ave received your application and further processing is required at htis time. We will contact you within a week via email regarding our decision."
On the other two applications, the screen says "Your application is pending further review and we need additional information from you. Please call 1-866-606-2961 now to receive an immediate decision. Agents are available now to quickly complete the processing of your application."

Can any shed light on what these responses mean, and what I can expect to hear when I call up about the ones that say they're pending?

thanks

They all sound like there's a possibility for an approval, but especially the second responses for the last two. They probably want to verify some info (very common) or shuffle around some credit lines. Call them!

I just went through 2 of these. They basically verify your personal info (no income questions), put you on hold for 5 minutes, and then hopefully approve you. So if you made it this far, I think it's a good sign for you

I just called Citi about the 2 applications that they said were "pending further review".  I got approved for both (Personal Amex and Business Visa) over the phone, after holding for a couple of minutes.  So now I'm just waiting for an answer on the 3rd application (Personal Visa) - website said I'd get a response by email within a week.

I did the 3-browser maneuver, but I'm surprised I even got approved for 2 of them because I already have a Citi AAdvantage MasterCard and a couple of other citi cards, which aren't utilized much.  That being said, they only approved me for $5k on the Amex and $9k on the Business.

I like to "cash out" on my offers as soon as I can - its a personal thing but thats what I like to do. As its been explained, the 75k offer is alot easier/quicker to hit (assuming you dont have a million dollar retail business) than the 100k, and I like to get in and then get out whenever I feel like it

I got approved over the phone for the two applications that they said I should call them about. For the other application that said "further processing is required", I just received this email:

Though a quick summary or wiki feature would make it way easier then reading 53+ pages. I really can't blame someone when they don't feel like doing all that work to find a simple answer. -  Just a general comment really meant for the mods -

If I sign up for a Citi AA business card, do the points have to go to the primary applicant/cardholder's AAdvantage account? I didn't provide any AAdvantage number when I signed up, but I would like the miles to into additional cardholder's AAdvantage account.

The miles automatically go to the primary account holder's AA acct.
If you want them to go into a different person's account (it's irrelevant if that person is an additional user or not), you can try entering that person's AA# on the application.
As it is, chances are about 50% for it to work if done at the time of application. Sometimes the system recognizes a mismatch and creates a new AA account # to transfer the miles into.
Once the application was submitted though, the only way to do it is by calling them and I would say your chances are pretty slim on this one.

I applied for these back in October 2010, got denied for all three. Still have an open inquiry from citi from back then.
Want to reapply now.  Is the open inquiry a reason for denial or even an increased chance of denial?

There are some reports on FT of people getting offers from Citi for 75K AA signup bonus after spending $1500 and others have gotten offers for 50,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles after $750 in purchases within the first 4 months of cardmembership and 50,000 AAdvantage® bonus miles after you make $10,000 in purchases during your first 12 months of cardmembership. Fee is waived for the first year annual fee.
There are links for the personal Visa and Amex and business Visa

The big question is that since these seem to be targeted offers will they work for anyone who uses the links or only for the intended individuals. The problem is that the links go directly to apps that dont have any info about these bonuses so you cant prove to them at a later date that you used a valid app. Here are the links if anyone is interested;

I was actually going to post about that today.
In my opinion, as much as its a shortcut, its an anti- churners tool if you know what I mean. It's probably good for a first timer who has the personal and wants to get the biz..
I never noticed that shortcut until today, can anyone confirm how  long its been there?

As an AU on citi it is on your credit score. Thats ironic bc usually its beneficial. You can take yourself off as an A/U but with such a high credit line it will certainly impact your credit ratios. Not sure what in terms of dealing with citi would be a solution other than getting yourself off that card - but what is the outstanding credit on that card? If its carrying a low balance than whats the diff. if its carrying a 20g balance and your stated income 30g you should see why thats a problem

That depends whether the CL shows up on the credit report or not.
Citi sometimes reports the credit limit a $0. In that case it would be a benefit for him to come off the account.

im not totally sure what  the issue is it could either be they are reporting the high balance which they r but then on the equifax report they r not using that balance to calculate utilization so i think it is either hurting because of the cl or because its counted in the credit used portion of the utilization but not the available cl part

I just called Citi about the 2 applications that they said were "pending further review".  I got approved for both (Personal Amex and Business Visa) over the phone, after holding for a couple of minutes.  So now I'm just waiting for an answer on the 3rd application (Personal Visa) - website said I'd get a response by email within a week.

I did the 3-browser maneuver, but I'm surprised I even got approved for 2 of them because I already have a Citi AAdvantage MasterCard and a couple of other citi cards, which aren't utilized much.  That being said, they only approved me for $5k on the Amex and $9k on the Business.

Wat did they ask you when you called?

Why would a high CL be a problem, even if its higher that stated income?
If anything the problem could be if the balance is almost as high as stated income.

They're worried that you have too much available credit and not enough income to pay it back.

First time getting this card, I assume. Why not create an AAdvantage account and get an AAdvantage # so you can put in on your application and know what account your miles were applied to.

Wait until you get the card/miles, you can always try and switch it later for spending. IMHO you don't want to alert them to the fact that there are two identical cards...

They might suppress two of the same application (i.e. both Amex).

I'm not sure how big the window for the three-app trick is, this has been discussed on DDF (http://www.dansdeals.com/forums/index.php?topic=6263.msg70430#msg70430) in the past.

They might suppress two of the same application (i.e. both Amex).

I'm not sure how big the window for the three-app trick is, this has been discussed on DDF (http://www.dansdeals.com/forums/index.php?topic=6263.msg70430#msg70430) in the past.
so do u think I should call since one might have been suppressed

NO! I think if one was suppressed there's not much you could do. If you actually got both then calling would get it cancelled.

As far as applying for other cards, I don't know within how long the 'three-browser-trick' applications need to be.

Dan – got letter from Ciit. “Our records DO NOT inidcate you were solicited for the offer you mentioned. Please send us a copy of the front adnn back of the offer you received. Once we receive this information, we will review your account and contact you.”
Can you help me out with what I should do? I signed up for the Citi Visa Business 75,000 offer.
Thank you.

Should I apply for the card(s)?

Background:  My last approved Personal AA Citi Amex was on 12/09   My last approved Business AA Visa was on 08/10.    I cancelled my Personal Citi Amex on 06/10.      I applied for AA Visa on 08/10 and got the "not first time" message.    I still have AA Bus Visa.

What are the changes I will be approved for the personal AA Visa and AA Amex?  Should I cancel my AA Bus Visa first and wait 60 before applying for the personal cards?

The topic of cancelling a card in order to "make room" for new cards has been lingering around for awhile. I can tell from my personal experience that I've gotten approved for the personal Visa while having a personal Visa open.
MAJOR YMMV ISSUE.
In any case, the 60 days are between applications, not between closing a card and an application.
*hint* personal and business cards should be viewed as two separate products as they don't affect each other.
Good luck!

Do they affect each other when it comes to recent applications? Meaning if one just applied for a business card, can he apply for a personal card 2 days later? Or will they deny him for having a recent app?

Update:
I went ahead and applied the 75K Amex and 75K Visa one right after the other.   I was in Step 3 on both applications, and when when I click on continue,  I got the error: "A system error has caused a delay in processing your application. Be assured that we have received it and there is no need to resubmit. We will contact you at the mailing address you provided as soon as it is processed. Thank you!"   I tried calling in for approval but they say the application is being reviewed.   What are my chances of being approved?   I remembered last time I applied (08/10)  I just got the "we will let you know" and didn't have the option to confirm my email and etc.

Sites that man that they dont have your ss on record from your last business card app? Wat I mean to ask is that it seems that they use your ss to get you approved but after that they delete it. Am i correct?

I doubled up on the personal Visa and Amex late last night and was not instantly approved (hovering mid 750s Exp rating). I then called customer service this morning and was asked to verify some information. They then approved me for both cards with 9k limits each and the 75k mile promos.

The one kicker was that it was with 4k spending limits within 6 months instead of the 1.5k. 8k wouldn't be too bad if I didn't have spending goals on a few other cards I just received. The application employee told me to give customer service a call once I received the cards to go over the promo terms so I'll give you guys an update then if the 1.5k spending is still available.

Wow that is interesting. My wife has 2 pending apps with them and i was afraid to call as they would see both and likely deny one.

I wonder if your experience is the norm or whether most reps would notice and deny the second...

When you called, did you just give them the social and they pulled them up or did you have the reference numbers? Im assuming the latter as you said you you called about the amex originally?

I'd imagine it's a case by case basis. Personally, I actually use a Citi card as one of my primary cards (for dining) so I'm not sure if that affected my application. Regardless, I was willing to split the CL across both just saying that I would prefer to have a Visa as a backup for the Amex (in case Amex isn't accepted).

Judging by others' recent experiences, it doesn't look like instant approvals are occurring that often for Citi or Chase apps, at least not on the popular mileage promos.

I provided my SSN as I only had one reference number saved, but my original intent was to call re: both cards. I'd imagine you could probably make separate calls to different CSRs for each reference number to eliminate some of the risk of them seeing multiple applications.

No, but i wouldn't think that they're (no) churning policy would vary from offer to offer?

Also, after i got my first citi AA visa a few weeks later i got an amex AA offer in the mail. I signed up for the Amex and was approved instantly... Not sure if that had to do with the fact that it was targeted towards me. Maybe i just got lucky?

A week ago I put through a triple-app (my third round IIRC). The two personal cards got declined (one for multiple app and one for first time cardholders only), and the biz got declined for multiple apps too. I called them and pleaded my case, and got the biz app submitted for credit review, today I got an email that I'm approved with $8k CL :D FTW!!!

Do you mind telling us which citi cards you have open and when you opened them?

can someone post a link to the best current aa cards
Are you referring to the first post in this thread?

There are some reports on FT of people getting offers from Citi for 75K AA signup bonus after spending $1500 and others have gotten offers for 50,000 American Airlines AAdvantage® bonus miles after $750 in purchases within the first 4 months of cardmembership and 50,000 AAdvantage® bonus miles after you make $10,000 in purchases during your first 12 months of cardmembership. Fee is waived for the first year annual fee.
There are links for the personal Visa and Amex and business Visa

The big question is that since these seem to be targeted offers will they work for anyone who uses the links or only for the intended individuals. The problem is that the links go directly to apps that dont have any info about these bonuses so you cant prove to them at a later date that you used a valid app. Here are the links if anyone is interested;

For the 50K+ 50K bonus

Will do (BL"N).

did you confirm with an agent that your getting 75k?

Yes. The rep was telling me he didn't know the offer was still around.

can someone post a link to the best current aa cards

Here's the 50/100k offers, I haven't used these links, but presumably works until the link is dead:
Visa (https://www.citicards.com/cards/acq/Apply.do?app=UNSOL&sc=4XKIW730&m=7QAEZZUCZZW&langId=EN&siteId=CB&B=S&screenID=3001)
Visa Biz (https://www.citicards.com/cards/acq/Apply.do?app=UNSOL&sc=6VVZBHD0&m=7QAEZZUCZZW&langId=EN&siteId=BAO&B=V&screenID=3006)
Amex (https://www.citicards.com/cards/acq/Apply.do?app=UNSOL&sc=6VVZBHD0&m=7QAEZZUCZZW&langId=EN&siteId=BAO&B=V&screenID=3006)
 
See the 75k offers below.

Do you mind telling us which citi cards you have open and when you opened them?

I did three or four rounds over the past year for the following three apps, approved once in the first round for a Visa personal, and once in the last round for a biz, churning these is a total YMMV:

75k Visa (https://www.accountonline.com/cards/acq/Apply.do?Promocode=away5&ProspectID=359519792CFF465C84120355746B4154&app=UNSOL&sc=4XK4I7G0&m=8USMZU3WYNW&langId=EN&siteId=CB&B=S&uc=4SE&s1=4X34I2X0&d1=D&o1=02&B1=G&screenid=3001)

I'm considering starting to charge for it... ;)

Seems like my cancelled Citi Identity Monitor is still providing credit alerts, so I know my Equifax was pulled by Chase :D

When I called Chase reconsideration, they told me they can now only open 1 account per 30 days, so I have to wait until 30 days since my Hyatt was opened. When I asked to clarify, they confirmed it's 30 days between opening accounts (not 30 days since application). I have about a week left until the 30 days are up, then I'll call again. YMMV.

Mazal tov on your approval!!!

Wait!!! What cards are you considering cancelling? If they're not with Citi then there's no need to cancel (unless your credit lines are as high or higher than the income reported to Citi). If they are with Citi you may want to ask about getting part of those larger credit lines moved to the new card.

I have the 75K AA Visa which I got back in February.  What is the likelihood that I can away with getting another or another two 75K AA Visa(s)?
Should I cancel my current one before applying?  Am I eligible for even one?  If so, should I try a two browser method and try to churn two?  Should I apply for 1 personal Visa, 1 business Visa?  Or two Personal Visas?  When I originally applied in February, I tried to churn two cards (P. Visa, Amex) got the Personal Visa but they sent a letter home requesting IRS info etc. for the AA Amex.  So I just didn't bother replying and let that one go.

Any advice would be great!

Short answer: YMMV.

Long answer: It's worth a shot IMHO. Be prepared to exploit some poor Indian Citi CS agent in the new accounts department ;) If I were you I'd send the IRS info, nothing to lose.

You don't apply for a 75k offer. You apply for any offer and get matched to 75k.
Why not? i applied for the 75 k personal offer by phone through a special phone number. It's just that i lost the number and can't seem to find it again, i originally found it on FT.

As far as we know this offer expired last year but it seems as long as the link is still working they are honoring the offer. I haven't heard of anyone getting this offer by calling now that this promo isn't officially active.

Does anyone have Citi's reconsideration number? Several years ago I lost track of one of my Citi cards and the annual fee kicked in which I was unaware of and did not pay. Eventually the account was closed as delinquent. The info never made it to my credit reports but I have been denied three times in the last 12 months for a Citi card because of 'a history of late payments'. Citi's customer service has been terrible with reps who did not appear to be empowered to do anything or even conduct proper research. It was extremely difficult just getting an direct answer for why I was declined.

I continue to have no issues with other banks, but no luck with Citi. Any suggestions?

Well your in for a surprise, i applied by phone about a month and a half ago. when they picked up the phone they automatically asked me if i would like to apply blah blah and it comes with a 75k offer. it's a special number for this offer. i found it in the citi 75k forum on FT, just can't find it again being that the forum has thousands of entries and i spent a long time poring through them but no luck.

I went and checking my credit monitoring especially for you, I got one pull on Equifax, but YMMV (especially if you live in an area where Citi consumer and Citi business pull from different bureaus , then you're likely to get two pulls IMHO).

looks like ashero is the only successful 75k churn reported

I don't think so, lots of reports on FT.

So interesting. I did a trifecta for my brother and used my AA# to try and help me hit 1MM before its all over.

1 got denied right away and the other 2 were pending. He got requests in the mail for the 4506T and they wouldn't accept our parent income as he is under 21. So they agreed to cancel both of those apps. Then i called back for the denied one and asked them to reconsider it because it was cancelled due to multiple requests for credit and those 2 other apps were cancelled. They agreed to do that. i just checked and it was approved!!!
I wonder if i should call back on the cancelled one and try and get that one back in the game. Its probably a better idea to just lay low.

Also, one of the reps mentioned that 2 applications is the maximum allowed and thats why the 3rd one got denied.

You think i have a shot? on both "cancelled ones" it was because of income, or lack thereof as he is under 21 and used parents income. They said he has to use HIS income which is nothing...

You did manage to get one app approved FWIU, so why not try for a second once you get this card. You can also try offering a joint cardholder for credit approval purposes.

i cancelled mine before i reapplied

I had two accounts, converted one to Hilton (I think, I don't plan on using it, but it has 14k CL), then applied. So I had an active personal acct. I got denied on all three apps. The reason I was denied on Biz was for multiple applications, so I called recon, and played stupid. Told him I kept applying for the biz and getting denied (which is true), so I was trying again. He approved me manually with 8k credit line.

Maybe better to wait till he get the bonus itself?

I don't think so for two reasons:
1. The reason I saw wait until you get the card is so they don't change your mind on the approval. Once they mail the card it's unlikely.
2. The new accounts department doesn't care much for promos, and if you get the card and spend the required amounts, you will get the miles (that's how it's been for everyone here and on FT).

I had to convert it to avoid the annual fee, especially since I wasn't using the card.

I would stay on the safer side personally.

But if you wait for the bonus to post, you might not be able to get the recent app approved and will have to:
1. Wait until 60 days from the app to reapply (90 days for Citi business apps)
2. Absorb another credit pull (and potentially risk denial based on additional pulls since the previous app)
3. Risk the 75k links expiring in the meantime.

So personally I'd only wait until I received the card, considering the risks.

You went straight for the conversion or did you mention cancelling and then they gave you the option in order to keep you around?

I asked them if they will ever want my business again, and they said they cannot tell me how long to wait in order to be considered a "new cardmember". I tried twice and even spoke to a supervisor... but nothing worked. Shall i keep trying? or just give up? With most other cc companies if i try hard enough i usually get my way... is citi much stricter?

Wow, Citi is pretty dumb.

So i recently did 3 trifectas for 3 people.

Person 1- 1 denied, 2 pending. Received letters asking for 4506-T on the pending. Called citi and cancelled apps as he doesnt have income. Then called back on the denied and had it resubmitted as it was denied due to recent apps...they had it resubmitted and it was approved :o

Person 2- 1 denied, 2 pending. Of the 2 pending, 1 was approved. The other is a business card and still pending.

Person 3- 1 denied, 2 pending. 1 of the pendings received a letter asking for 4506-T. Called citi and they said the process could take a month after sending it back so i cancelled the app. The other pending (business) was just approved :o So they approved the business card without the IRS form but wouldnt do the personal one.

Everything is pure YMMV. The 1 denied one on all 3 accounts is because of recent request for credit, meaning it saw the other apps out there.

They don't affect utilization. Defaults will definitely show up on your report.

Asher I got a question for you
If I have personal credit cards with Citi and a business card with a tax I'd number, I then default on my personal credit cards would that trigger Citi to shut down my business credit card or since it is on a different business profile and they only check your social initially to have someone personally liable, will it remain active so long as I pay and keep current.

For that matter the question actually applies to all credit cards company?

I don't think there's a blanket rule for all CC companies, and each situation and credit card company would have to be researched individually, to see what people have reported in the past.

CC companies are notorious for such practices, when they smell risk they are quick to drop you like a hot potato or suddenly hit you with outrageous interest rates. They were doing this thing called 'universal default' where if you defaulted on one card (e.g. your Discover card) another bank (e.g. Citi) would raise your interest rate to their default rate, default rates sometimes are often 30% or more). I think universal default was recently outlawed, but that should help answer your question. I'd say if you defaulted on your personal account with any CC company, your business accounts with them are very likely to be at risk of sanctions/closure.

Correct me if I'm wrong I've heard in the past that after initial application your business account is totally independent and has no affiliation with your social and therefore should not be affected.
I do understand that with same bank it may be risky however with another bank I don't think it should affect it.

Your personal delinquency not showing on your company's D&B doesn't at all mean that the CC issuer won't see you (including your business) as a higher credit and take action based on that.

Are you asking me a question, trying to correct me, looking for an argument or some other combination thereof?

i'm pretty sure that business acounts don't effect your personal credit report, other than the original hard inquiry.   that's not to say that the bank won't decide they don't want to deal with you even on a personal level, but it won't show up on your credit report.

Personal experience:
I've had the Citi-business card since Feb and was wondering why it wasn't showing up on my CR. When I called them they told me it's on a "business side of you credit report ," I responded "I didn't know people could have more than one credit report, are you talking about something like Dunn & Bradstreet?" He said 'yes' with some lack of confidence in his voice. So this was the first time I've heard of this.

I applied for the citi aadvantage biz 75k offer and was denied, reason being too many recent applications (2 within 30 days of app.) i  have tried asking them if they can cancel another card or at least move part of the credit line over but they refused. Does anyone have any advice or tips of what i can do to get it approved. i applied for it on april 27 and it's almost 30 days from the date of application. thanx

I called the application status number and spoke to a supervisor.

The following numbers were culled from the thread:

Personal: 800-645-7240, 888-201-4523, 866-606-2961
Business: 800-288-4653

So i called this afternoon and asked to speak to hixon. They claimed they knew who hixon was but that he was busy. Instead she  transfered me to her supervisor who turned out to be a witch (didn't know before today that they employed witches). She started telling me that "WE TOLD YOU ALREADY WE CAN'T TRANSFER CREDIT LINES FROM PERSONAL TO BUSINESS" blah blah blah.
It Seem that apparently they have on record that i tried already.  She told me i can try to reapply 60 days after the application was originaly filed.   It's just that i'm afraid that the 75k business offer won't be around by than plus i don't want another credit pull.
Guess will have to try again.

It usually takes a day or two for it to hit your report. If you pay your bill on time, the points should it your account soon after the statement closes.

I bet one pull and YMMV on approval. For best results you can try using two different business names so you can try and use that to convince recon that you applied for two to keep accounting/transactions separate between the two businesses. But like I said, YMMV.

It all depends on what issuers pull from what bureau in your state/area. If Citi pulls from a different bureau than your recent apps, then obviously no problem. Are you considering the 75k/100k AA offers? If yes, are you churning? Also, do you have other existing credit lines with Citi that you'd consider closing?

Hmmmph, I say go for three AA 75/100k offers in different browsers. If you live in Brooklyn Citi will probably be the only issuer that pulls your Equifax. To be sure, sign up for Identity Monitor (http://identitymonitor.citi.com) 30 day trial for $1 (don't forget to cancel), upgrade to the 3-bureau report and you should see most of your credit pulls on Experian (maybe some on TU), if this is the case you should be safe with three apps.

I was only going to do 2, as I only see 2 75K offers. I guess you're saying that I have nothing to lose to go for three and earn an extra 50K...

See here for links (http://www.dansdeals.com/forums/index.php?topic=3104.msg82905#msg82905) to the three 75k ($1,500 spent within 4/6 months) and the three 100k offers ($10,000 spent within a year). For the business card use your SSN for the taxID/EIN, say it's a sole proprietorship and fudge the rest of it ;)

So I did the three browser for Citi AA - didn't get instant approval on any. 

Today, got approved for the 2 personal and denied for the business due to multiple applications.  I tried arguing that business should be separate but to no avail - CSR rep said max application they could process at a time was 2 and that I need to wait 90 days to apply for business.  I have a personal MC and recently closed my business Visa.

I guess 2/3 is not bad - now just need to spend 20K.

I did it. Called Recon and get the Visa approved. Called for the business and got asked to supply a document/bill of the "business." Help!!!
I'll call on Monday to get the AMAX approved.

The Amex you get from Citi isn't a "real" American Express amex card - it just uses the amex network for processing, terms, etc...  For "real" amex cards, american express is the issuer and the processor - for the citi card, citi is the issuer and amex is the processor.   Amex will see your charges as they process it but has no involvement otherwise (credit check, worthiness, approve, decline, etc....)

You applied for a business card and don't have a business?  :-O  I take it you picked the Sole Proprietor button on the app?  It's easy to get approved without an EIN, you just need to have a business name.  What do you do in your day job?  I'm sure you have a sideline/moonlighting business in the same field, called Nitantnel Consulting, right?  And since it's the same as your day job, you can answer the rudimentary question about what does your business do when they ask you that.  The hard part will be if they ask for a tax form, but you just say that the business is new, that's why you want a credit card - to keep expenses separate for bookkeeping.  If you used a completely different name on the app, then they might be asking for your dba (doing business as) papers.  You generally don't need them if your business uses your name.  Anyways, more info gets a better answer...

Oh, and it's amEx...

Thank you for both of your replies!

I didn't see the option of "Sole Proprietor," I did write that my business address is the same as my home address - if that's what it means.

They told me I should send in either a utility bill, bank statement, lease or rent statement, and insurance statement  with my name of business on it. (They mentioned more but I didn't care to listen as I have none of anything...) What did I say my business is? "Outreach" - which could mean anything. That's all the information involved.

OK, what I would do is call them up and say you goofed up on the application.  You're an SP, the name of your business is "<your name> Consulting" and what you do is "outreach for <whatever you really do for a job>".  Just say you mis-read the application, had a phone call in the middle, hit send before you were done, whatever... 

The one thing you have to figure out is how to finesse the lack of documentation.  You could apply for an EIN with the IRS but that'll take a week or two to get the letter from them.  You can say you don't have any of the regular bills because you work out of your home.  You could offer to fax her a copy of your business card if you're handy in whipping one up real quick.

I just looked at the form again and realized what you meant. I actually did apply as an SP, however instead of writing my business name is "Nitantnel outreach," I worte my name is "OORAH Outhreach." The truth is a that a business ran as an SP can have a different name: "A sole proprietor may use a trade name or business name other than his or her legal name." (Wikipedia)
I'm thinking of just calling back and try my luck with a different Rep. Think it will work?

Sure, you can name your business anything you want - it's not just limited to SPs either.  But if john doe tries to operate his sp named smurf enterprises, he's going to have a hard time if he doesn't have his dba filed.  and operating includes banking and credit activities.  see here for what a dba is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doing_business_as (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doing_business_as).  if your full name is included in the business name, you'll have a much easier time dealing with financial people. 

then again, you could get someone who knows what oorah is.  You can try calling another csr, sure.  as long as you don't get angry with them and don't hear them typing notes into your account, you can call pretty much as much as you want.  just keep track of who you talk to so you can hang up when you get the same person you got 15 minutes ago...   :)

Why would churners be out of luck? Doesn't churning mean that u get the bonus and close the account and try to apply again and get the bonus again? (never churned so I'm not sure I know what it is)

Is there a Citi AA card that u can earn unlimited points? Without a yearly cap, as the these cards listed in this thread?

Hmmmph, I say go for three AA 75/100k offers in different browsers. If you live in Brooklyn Citi will probably be the only issuer that pulls your Equifax. To be sure, sign up for Identity Monitor (http://identitymonitor.citi.com) 30 day trial for $1 (don't forget to cancel), upgrade to the 3-bureau report and you should see most of your credit pulls on Experian (maybe some on TU), if this is the case you should be safe with three apps.

On the "question with three browser" thread, someone just posted that citi does separate pulls for personal and business. Anyone know if this so in Brooklyn too?

Citi biz and Citi personal are different biz units.  they most likely were different banks a few years ago (pre-downturn) and they don't integrate very well (yet?).

I applied for the Amex 75K 3 weeks ago and was initially declined. After speaking multiple times to supervisors they finally agreed to 'resubmit' the application and hinted strongly it would be approved. I called back a week later to check on the status only to be informed it was 'voided' because the offer is no longer valid.

Nice laundry :D You should definitely give recon a shot.

Just not working. Supervisor is being hard-headed and insists she has to follow 'policy.' Only advice is to write to the office of the president.


Quick recap:
-Initially declined because of too many inquiries and and an old Citi account that was closed by the bank as delinquent. Was told by supervisors that they cannot look past this delinquent account but that they can reconsider based on the number of inquiries and suggested I speak with customer service to resolve this old account. After spending hours on the phone, they finally corrected the old account.

-I then spoke to a supervisor in new accounts who resubmitted the application.

-I called to check the status and it was 'voided' as the promo (amex 75k) no longer existed. The supervisor said I should reapply. I applied for the Visa 75k and was declined because of 'too many inquiries.'

-I called New Accounts and the supervisor just won't budge despite the usual spiel. 

Any advice? Anyone have any luck with the President's Office?

I had a very weird situation last night....I went ahead and applied two family members for the visa and amex (4K spend) double browser. The first got instant approvals for both while the second "need review" "missing info" etc. Now everything was filled out correctly and citi even acknowledged that when i called. Any idea why this happened? Credit is impeccable for both applicants. Perhaps not clearing cookies? does that even make any sense?

People I have a true story of Citibank incompetence. In short there was a card closed by the bank about 10 years ago due to inactivity, and that restriction hindered the instant approval of both apps. One was declined so they reprocessed, the other is nearing the final stages of processing. Obviously its all being done manually. Will let you know what happens.

Just open a new business account. That's what I did.
Just make sure that your business name will match a utility bill.

If the business name you wrote on the application is different, then you can call up the number on
the letter that they sent you and ask them to change the name of your
business to whatever name is on your utility bill (usually your own/spouses name.

So my application was Jimbob Smith applying for a business named Jimbob Smith, and I was approved.

Then you just fax it in. ( when you call, ask them for the number. I don't have it handy, If I find it, I'll post it)

I applied for the Amex 75K 3 weeks ago and was initially declined. After speaking multiple times to supervisors they finally agreed to 'resubmit' the application and hinted strongly it would be approved. I called back a week later to check on the status only to be informed it was 'voided' because the offer is no longer valid.


Im having the same exact issue...did you have any luck?

It was also for the visa- the 75k one

Friends also have had varying experiences. I Plan on doing a triple app (yes I know its 4k for the amex) soon . Its 10 months since I got my Visa and 6 months since I got my Biz and was rejected for the Amex. I canceled them around 60 days ago. Will report back when I decide to pull the trigger.

Found out the reason people: He had a card closed for inactivity about 10 years ago by the bank so there is a restriction on his account....One card was declined, after a call (which included app processing and cs) was put in for reprocessing since some idiot declined it without seeing why there was a restriction. The other got approved after a few days of manual processing. Waiting on the first, will keep advised. So incompetent.

and while im ranting- I went ahead and did 2 1500 dollar charges on both cards to meet my requirements, they were declined multiple times. I finally called in and they put a "repression" on the account to allow the charges. Then today I see a message online above my accounts "please call in to make sure your card isnt declined here in" or something to that effect. Seems the repression only lasts 24 hours and then they shut you down again eventhough you didnt make a purchase yet. Of course amex, chase no problem, and if there was theyd call me as soon as I did the transaction to verify

I just called AA to get some canceled miles reinstated. I got it done through applying for the 50,000/100,000 mile AA citi AMEX card. (which have posted already btw)
Anyways, as I was hanging up the lady asked if I'd like to sign up for the citi mastercard or visa and get 30,000 points. I asked her if I would get it even though I already got a sign up bonus. She said that the AMEX isn't connected to the VISA/MC and that I would get it again even though they're both consumer cards. I said I wasn't interested so that I can go to the link and get the 75,000. Anyone else have any experience with this?
Thanx Dan for discovering this challenge and Thanx Mes for being in the right place at the right time(I only discovered your post bc Im having some issues with Citi so decided Id do a chazarah of the thread)

For everybody else:
I called aa today about that and they informed me its a "challenge" in which I have to agree to receive emails from them and have 750 points post through citi cc, then call back and they reinstate everything. Free points everybody. Get urs today. See dan's link below for more detail

I saw a couple reports where it worked. DId anyone have it not work?
Those that had it work, do you live at the same address?

I can report that i tried this for 3 family members and all 3 of them had the miles post to THEIR account and not mine...there went that idea. Might be time for the wife and i to go for another round. Its almost 60 days since the last try...

I know its 60 days for personal cards and 90 for biz (and this may have been answered already) but...
If i apply for a personal card after waiting 60 days since a trifecta, can i apply for a business card 30 days later which would be 90 days since the last biz app but 30 days since the personal app

You can do that, but they'll probably see the recent personal applications/approvals and you might have a harder time getting approved. YMMV.

Is there any reason to do the 4k one if the $1500 visa's seem to be working? I just got the amex and a business one recently.

Can i do a "75k - 4K" visa as well as a "75k - $1500" visa or do we think that would for sure not work?

especially if they ask you for proof of business address.
so the business name should really be a name of the person who gets the phone
bill, or internet bill. ( They'll have to have a business bank account too but you can always
make that later.)

Post by: youthink on June 27, 2011, 12:44:40 PM
Just not working. Supervisor is being hard-headed and insists she has to follow 'policy.' Only advice is to write to the office of the president.


Quick recap:
-Initially declined because of too many inquiries and and an old Citi account that was closed by the bank as delinquent. Was told by supervisors that they cannot look past this delinquent account but that they can reconsider based on the number of inquiries and suggested I speak with customer service to resolve this old account. After spending hours on the phone, they finally corrected the old account.

-I then spoke to a supervisor in new accounts who resubmitted the application.

-I called to check the status and it was 'voided' as the promo (amex 75k) no longer existed. The supervisor said I should reapply. I applied for the Visa 75k and was declined because of 'too many inquiries.'

-I called New Accounts and the supervisor just won't budge despite the usual spiel. 

Any advice? Anyone have any luck with the President's Office?

Well, here's an example where perseverance pays off! I wrote into the Citi Office of the President last week outlining the entire history of my applications with Citi and why I believe I should be approved. Got a call back today that they reviewed everything and were able to approve it! Called back customer service to verify that the 75k promotion is on file and everything looks good.

I'm tempted to apply for the business as well, but that might just be pushing it.

Or switch to a different card type, this way when you churn you can have the account converted and you'll have less issues with getting them to issue (no pun intended) more credit.

Has anybody recently applied and gotten the miles? Just wondering if the offers are still working. And if someone can post the citi recon number, I'd greatly appreciate it. I had a denial due to max credit being extended to an individual so I called and had my credit line on my original citi card reduced. I called the accounts number and the new app status number and both are telling me I have to re-apply. If I can't get through via citi recon, I was going to apply for the personal and biz concurrently this time around. Thanks.

Hi - I currently have a Citi AA Visa card (I received a bonus with it, 40k miles I believe, just a month ago).

Should I bother applying for any of these cards? Does it help if I close my current AA card?

Yes, some of it is current, see the FT link for currently working applications.

Why are you SHOUTING?

Welcome to the forums!

The three browser method will work with any three Citi cards, if some are Citi business (and Citi business pulls from a different bureau than Citi consumer in your state), then you may get two pulls.

As for getting approved with a current Citi AA card, it's become much harder, but YMMV.

Those transfers are idiotic, as the airlines charge exorbitant fees, when instead you can book award tickets in someone else's name with no limits and no extra fees.

These rumors of card companies taking back signup bonus miles have got to end.
I've yet to hear of a single report of a company ever yanking back signup miles for closing a card. 
Some CSRs threaten that to improve their retention numbers, but I've never heard about it actually happening with any card.

+1, IIRC the FT links 100k are for 50k upon approval and 50k after 10k (first year). Much better with the FT links IMHO.

I've been recently getting back into the CC game. I posted a while back how I was hit w/ a fr from amex, and upon shutting down my 30k of credit before they would(nearly 90 percent of my credit overall), I've finally seen some recovery. This was upon being approved for the BA card. Now it's been a few months and I recently signed up for sapphire and onepass(30k +$50 offer, afraid I missed out on the 50k!) using two browsers. I'm not sure if I'm approved yet but I do want to map out a game plan(assuming I do get approved). I currently don't have any AMEX cards and would like to get a hold of a starwood again. I also have some an aadvantage personal that I hung onto this whole time(2 years or so) and a citi business(at&t card, which I had downgraded a AAdvantage Business card into). Now which route do I go, starwood, or try to get in on the 75k aa offers around. And If I do go for 75k offers, anyone here with had the aa card while applying and still got approved for the signup bonus? Thanks, in advance, I've been searching over these forums for last couple weeks but really want to be careful as I don't want to destroy my credit again!

Whoa, try to break your post down into smaller paragraphs next time.

Regarding your recent Chase apps, try to get your appIDs before you call reconsideration, get them approved one at a time. Offer to move credit from your BA card and possibly close the card (assuming you already got your signup bonus) in order to get approved.

Regarding Amex, do you have any (IRS reported) income for the past year? If you do, and re willing to send Amex a 4506-T form, go ahead and apply again.

Regarding Citi (75k offers), check to see what credit bureaus Citi pulls from in your state, if you don't have too many pulls on that bureaus report, and Amex/Chase don't pull from that bureau, you should definitely apply for the Citi AA offer as well.

Thanks, I will do that although I've been reading most of the SM sent to chase for this offer aren't working, It's worth a shot. I'm really hoping that this will be the turning point for my credit. AMEX originally linked myself and my brothers SSN for whatever reason, and upon delinking(plus the FR) really led to huge headaches and issues. I was so frustrated with the whole credit industry I just kind of gave up on it and hung onto whatever I had. I had good credit score but for some reason only experian and equifax had any history(transunion said I didn't exist!) and even they were cutting out half my credit. I know what happens to me is a definite rarity but it was hundreds of hours on the phone and in SSA offices etc....  Now after reluctantly applying for BA and getting approved, I'm hoping things will finally turn around.

Good idea on the chase apps. A friend of mine was actually told by chase they would take his 100k miles upon cutting. He transferred them to family JIC, yet from what dan wrote earlier this seems to preposterous to actually happen.

For Amex I do have some reported income and I will attempt that.

For the citi apps, do I need to close or downgrade my current aa personal card?

Also anyone know which bureaus are pulled from per which cards in CA?

Then yesterday another rep tells me that it certainly reports on the personal bureau. There are many people reporting absolutely no credit reporting on the business
card at all (as is my case too).

if a person gives his EIN number for the business card is it still common for citi to ask for 2 documents to prove your business or will the EIN number be suffice in most cases?

I doubt that's true, but even if it is, it's Citi specific and not the same at Amex/Chase etc.

I posted earlier how I did a double app on sapphire and CO card. I just got a call from CO who called to confirm my info and asked me some Qs about my history, they then informed me they would proceed to do a credit pull.... I'm guessing my double browser application is now moot...

Was anything frozen? If not, why would they pull (again?) at a later time, they usually pull immediately when you apply (unless their pull gets rejected due to 'inaccurate' information on the app, in which case they have to call and verify the info).

YMMV, they don't always ask for confirmation. If they do, you can try and use the EIN doc to open a bank acct in the business name using the EIN printout from the IRS website.

Just did a triple app . Had the Visa Biz and Visa personal in the past, and  I was rejected previously for the Amex for already having the Visa.

The 2 personal are pending and the Biz they need info to substantiate my business address.

Nothing frozen. I'm not sure what wasn't valid on the form... though this has happened before where I've been asked when getting a credit report to verify different info. Again I don't have the typical credit like most due to AMEX screwing up my first couple years of reporting and accidentally linking my account to my brother's and upon delinking making all kinds of issues.

(think this was discussed earlier, but i can't find it)
got an offer in the mail today to add an AA amex to my existing consumer visa for 10K miles after $250 purchases and 1.2 miles per dollar. pre-approved. annual fee waived/icluded in my 1st AA card.

is it worth doing this (pre-approved so i get 10K without another pull)? does this mean that a Amex 75K app is likely to get through the cracks (if the churning flags are allowing me an amex app, will it not 'notice' which app i use)?
or does it just mean i am in their lists of having had the promo b4 so i won't be able to churn anyway?

Not sure it's pull-free, might want to confirm.

Citi 75k offer churning is a major YMMV, I don't think this can help you predict how you'll fare, one way or the other.

To possibly make it more likely to get in on 1 personal and 1 business, would you suggest I close my current(2 yr old) advantage personal? I got 25000 miles w/ that signup....

Hard to tell, some people have been declined after closing cards, others approved with currently open AA cards (myself included in the latter group), as I've been saying for 1300+ posts:

You have to click on the links and apply that way (the apps won't show 75k, but you'll have to trust us, 1,000s have gotten the miles using those links). No matching will work for this offer, don't bother calling.

Yes, though two personal and one business cards might get you two pulls (in a state where Citi consumer and Citi Business pull from different bureaus).

1. Right now I have Exp and Equi frozen and only TU unfroze.  Should I open one or both for CA application on this?

2. Also, if I do the Citi AA 2BM should I also do a 3BM for another company (Chase or even another Citi card just not AA) to maximize on the inquiry?

You keep asking these questions again and again, just read the forums and the answers are all there.

1. Citi will only pull from the bureau they pull from in your state, i.e. if they try EX and it's frozen they won't accept EQ or TU, they will insist you unfreeze EX. Check which bureaus Citi has pulled for you in the past, or if you don't have a Citi pull see what's typical for CA.

2. 2BM/3BM only works for one issuer, so you'll still get multiple pulls (one from each issuer) if you apply to multiples at the same time, The only thing you gain by doing multiple issuers on the same day is that they typically don't see eachother's pulls, so you can apply for more credit in a short period of time that way.

I think they use different language in the various offers, though I don't think the difference in language actually translates (pun) to different policies.

When did she close her previous AA card? If it's been two years or more I'd say she's likely to get the bonus this time.
