HT: FT

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.

AF 450, I will take two.  :)

Anyone know if it's 30 or 60 day cutoff for the AF refund?

If I have 2 or more active AA cards with the 10k annual rebate, can I get it twice per year?

Are you asking if it is possible to get both bonuses? Yes, it's possible.

Thanks . Risky ?  If buying and cancelling refundable a second time , for same cardholder ?

So close the account within 37 days of the annual fee posting and it becomes a 50k points for $0 offer?

I've had two active 10% rebate cards, still maxed at 10k miles back in one year.

I used the FT link for the 50k app (no landing page) .. i called to activate the card yesterday .. I asked to confirm the terms of the promotional offer and the rep was kind of back and forth and confused a little bit like she seemed like she couldn't see any offer with it.. I kind of told her what i thought the offer was... and she came back and said that she can see 50k mile (that also can be used as a statement credit)  after 3k in 3 months of spending.. i asked if there was a statement credit (maybe 150) .. and she said she didn't see any of that info but the department she would transfer to me was closed.

If i call back today.. what should I be going for is there just 50k miles .. or is there some 150 statement credit associated to this offer/ admirals passes or something else?
Pleas hold. Your call will be answered in the order it was received.

Data point:
I applied with a 2bm for the citi regular and business AA cards. Both were approved (consumer instantly, and business after pending a few days)
One credit pull :)

Why bother with a 2bm of personals if 2bm personal + business works with one pull?
