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.

Same issue on both Chrome and Firefox, unfortunately.

Weird. Seems like a back-end problem with Citi.

It's like this for a while now. PDF not available right away. The other formats are only a list of charges. Nothing with the points.

Just got off the phone with them, Dan (no pun intended) says that they no longer transfer available balances from one card to another. Has anyone else heard this? Should I be calling back to ask someone else?

Thanks

Apparently, I will not be able to see a PDF option (i) for those months before I linked my CC to my profile, and (ii) those months in which there are less than three transactions.

Thank you for contacting our Customer Service Team.

We are unable to transfer a portion of a credit line from one account to another account.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Is it wrong of me to ask "it it only when people call for reconsideration of an application that you do it?"?
