Citi credit card reconsideration number and advice?

Postby bisbicos » Fri Mar 02, 2012 4:40 pm

Hey guys I was denied a Citi preferred thank you card. Has anyone here had a good experience with Citi bank reconsidering a credit card for them? Or does anyone know what number to call for it?

A few years ago, my denial was for too many inquiries and late payment. After answering a series of questions, the rep from new account recommend approval for 1000.00. When i received the card, the limit was 5500.00.

Have your credit report handy and be ready to confidently answer questions on your report. Do not sound like you re desperate or bring up sign up bonus.
