Citi in NY pulls from either Equifax or Experian or both. YMMV even by the same person.

If you live in NJ or NY, you should freeze your Experian. They will only pull Equifax then. Otherwise, YMMV.

FOR MORE INFO, READ FT'S WIKI - IT IS PHENOMENAL, FT WIKI

Quote from the above mentioned FT WIKI:
For the most part, freezing Experian, or another bureau, will not cause Citi to pull a different bureau. They will almost certainly require you to unfreeze the bureau they wish to pull or deny your application. Some people have been successful providing the PIN but others have not. Mostly, freezing a credit bureau in an attempt to force Citi to pull a different one seems to waste time, money, and effort for little result. But YMMV.

DDF data points (As of 10/2015)
NY- pulls both EQ/EX, can still get instant approval with EX frozen
CA, OH, PA, TX- ONLY EX. Citi will refuse to pull other bureau

Benefits:..
New no forex fees starting Nov.'15

From FT Wiki:"Important exception: If you receive a Platinum World MC which is later converted to a World Elite MC (as indicated on the back of the card), the opening of that card will no longer count for purposes of the 18-month rule. This is true not only for conversions in early 2015, but also for those in more recent months.
Note: It makes no difference when (or whether) you activate the World Elite card. If you have the WE card in hand, then the conversion on Citi's books is already complete. There is nothing magical about activating it.
There are a few reports that some Gold World MC are being converted to Gold World Elite MC and that will no longer count for purposes of the 18-month rule."
UPDATE: As of 02/18/2016 (for applications after 02/09/2016), the W>WE loophole may be dead.

question was if it "doesn't show" will you still get the free bag?
i believe they can link ur name and dob, as i said i never called to add my AA#, on my last trip i called once to add my babies and they prob linked thru my cell # (which is registered on my account), and the other way called from DW phone and the same thing showed up on my ticket without adding anything.

Are there any AA credit cards that offer free checked bags for international itineraries (US -> Bahamas)?

citi just canceled my AA card due to inactivity.  The problem is I am flying AA on Sunday and need the free bags.  My AA account still says Citi advantage card holder. Does anyone if that will last thru next week?
 The rep told me the only way to reopen is thru a hard pull and takes time seems like thats what others experience has been. Has anyone been able to get in really reinstated?

reddit has a churningmarketplace where you can get one. personal mailers $50 +/- and biz offers $75 +/-. Can't recall but I think you have to get approved to join the subreddit

12 can't be used for someone else. I got one of those 2, but it was for my cat... I don't think 9 digits exist anymore, only in email.
