I upgraded my aadvantage silver to a platinum select just by calling CSR .
Did they pull an inquiry for that? Had you been instantly approved? How old was the silver account?
Yes just tell them. Btw, citicorp did pull a hard inquiry when i moved my gold AA to platinum select/combined.
citi did not pull anything for the silver AA's to change.
just call up, and say, "I'd like to switch my gold AA product to the citibank platinum select".
thats all, done, no more. And make sure you ask for the yearly fee back, and a lower apr
If you want to upgrade, I recommend that you do it before you activate the card. That way, they won't charge the annual fee in the first place.
So what should I ask them to change the silver AA to? And should I bother applying for a second card?
if you plan to carry balance, platinum select (plain old) is the best apr card they have.
Thats my suggestion. If you want perks, then your APR is going to suck..
btw I preffer Dividend Platinum. And yes you can apply again for the Gold AA, they will put
another inquire on your Equifax report.
I WOULD SAY "NO INQUIRY IS NECESSARY"...if you can't trade cards with-out an inquiry...I don't need it that bad...(OTHER CARD)...
***I'M REALLY BEGINNING TO BELIVE THEY REALLY DO GET PAID TO "RUN" A CREDIT CHECK INQUIRY*** (it was originally one of my jokes)
You are NOT asking for a second account...you are asking for a "TRADE" to a DIFFERENT account...
to my knowledge there wasn't any inquiry pulled. ( I checked via worthknowing.com )
I was not instantly approved, I got the wait 7-10 day message. The limit I got approved for was $10.000 at 14.99 percent. No bt offer.
I called the number on the back of the card, I was able to upgrade the card to the Platinum select just by asking. This was done the moment I got the card in the mail.
I called again and ask them to put in a request for a balance transfer. I a bt offer within 7 days. 6.9apr for 6 months, no bt fees and a goto rate of prime + 4.9. I accepted.
I still was not happy with the goto rate and tried to speak to retention. Was stonewalled. I wrote a nice letter via PFB to citibank. Within a week a rep called and lowered my goto rate to prime + 2.9
All this was done within 2 weeks of getting my citi card.
I have citi platinum select and it is getting close to 2 years now..My limit is $2,500 it was originaly $2,000 they gave me a 500 increase last year. I hav tried to get a higher limit but i get denied all the time..I belive it is because there card and my discover card are within the credit limit..However this is becasue of the rates..Right now my Discover rate is 1.9% till January with $3000 limit.,My citi is at 8.40% fixed..They are my best card the one i use most cuz of the intrest...Just sux the limit is low i would give them the $3,000 i owe discover as well..And i have a next card with a line of $6,000 but i owe $0
Bill B, to get a huge limit increase, apply for a 2nd Citi card and combine. Expect an increase of $5,000 - $10,000.
Not bad, huh? Just remember not to apply for any of the Platinum or World cards.
Ok so apply for a platinum select again? Or just a regular card i am lost.
apply for the citibank AAdvantage silver and gold (if you have two cards already, only do the gold).
You'll get one, and then convert/combine.
Tried and true way..
I had a platinum select with 4K limit, i now have a platinum select with 15K limit. Word..
I believe I've answered that in the very post you quoted
Sam has also given you good advice. Good luck
there is a annual fee of $85 on the citi aadvatage gold card
Which is why, upon approval, we've all transferred it to another card (unless you want the air mileage). Applying for the AA non-Platinum non-World products is preferred, since approval standards are more lenient there.
Listen I really APPRECIATE the tip..
Thank you for choosing Citibank. You have been approved for a CitiÂ® Gold AAdvantageÂ® Card account with the following:
Initial Credit Line: $5,000.00
Purchase APR: Prime Rate + 9.90% , currently 16.65%.
Now how would i transfer this to my citi select platinum that i have with the 8.40% fixed apr it also has no anual fee..Do i need to wait till i get card or what..I am excited because i think they are the best card yet..
I see the upgrade part but i dont have citi platinum select aadvantage i have the regular one..with no fees
convert the AA gold to a platinum select dividend, wait about 2-3 days combine..
The AA gold cannot be directly combined. Trust me on this one.
Btw, if you just got the gold, go back and apply today for the AA silver, you'll get that one too, since the standards are the same, probably same limit too. Then you can do both.
btw, congrats on your FAT increase !!
p.s. you have to call to convert or combine..
