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.

Howdy folks.  I and others have posted about some AA "glitch" whereby miles earned on the Citi AA CC were not being transferred to AA.  In either event, I am waiting approximately 3 months and still haven't received any miles - both bonus and spending.  Has anyone recently applied for and received AA miles?  If so, how did you manage to get them credited to your AA account?
try reading up a little.
EDIT: mine posted after my first statement no problem

I am already past my 2nd statement and still nothing.  When I last called, I told the rep I wasn't using the card until I got my miles.

Other reports say three statements. That's why I haven't really made to many calls yet. Hopefully it will post then. Will update as well.

Does adding myself as an AU without my social to my wife's account cause it show on my credit report? I don't want to bring down the average age of my accounts.
Yes. It will show on your report.

Thanks so much. Here is what I did.

1. I called Citi ad confirmed, yep, all the AMEX GCs are counted as CA. 5% fee plus daily interest.
2. I called AMEX in "Salt Lake City" and spent 30 min dealing with rep. The best he can do is refund the charges (not cancel the transaction.)

I am wondering if Citi will automatically reverse the CA fee (and interest) when the charges are refunded, or if that will take another call and some begging to get them to take care of it.

Any insights?

For next time remember the old DDF rule. Ask Citi to reduce your cash advance limit to zero.

Does citi not let you pay off your balance before the closing date? I tried paying and I am getting this message "You have entered an amount greater than your last statement balance. Please re-enter an amount less than or equal to your statement balance."
