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.

There is no way to expedite; they'll post second statement. You're either stuck paying the annual fee or risk losing the 100K.

But, seriously? You guys are going to risk 100K for $250?

Statement closed over a week ago. Miles still didn't post to AA. I SM'd them and they told me it can take 2 to 3 billing cycles to post. Is there any way to speed this up? It's stupid to get nailed with the AF for this reason. I hit the 10k before the 1st statement closed.
did you enter your AA number initially when you signed up fir the card ? (in the citi application)

You cancel now and get back 450 but risk the 110k. You make the call.  :)

ETA: The 200 credit is in your pocket so that does not come into play.

Bottom line, how risky is it to shut with a negative miles balance?
1) Very
2) Seriously YMMV
3) Meh, wtvr, do it and stop worrying.
4) Absolutely no risk, Citi does not communicate with AA ever.

You bought an AA refundable ticket and you get double miles.

You get 2PPD for any spend on AA and that's what this is for.

He just assumed you purchased refundable tickets.
