Since you don't know the invitation code of the "old" invitation, it is almost impossible for anyone to guess, with an certainty, if the second application would be approved.

IMHO it is worth the potential hard pull to see if you can get approved.

I opened Hilton Hhonors Visa in 09/2014, got some bonus points and basically forgot about it. Later (probably last year) Citi sent me new card.

Will it be considered that I actually applied for card in 2016 - or for Citi only my original 09/2014 application counts?

No, you did not apply for or open a new account in 2016.

Correct, ccs come with an expiration date on them. When that time is up, the cc company sends you a new card, with an updated expiration date, but the same account number. It's not a new account, just an updated card.

Make sure you check to see if they did a hard pull for this application.

Just breached $2K spend = bonus trigger;
USA phone rep said ~75+2=77Kpts triggered by breach,
& pts available 4-6 wks later = early May...?
Can anyone verify as correct even though first
statement to be generated April 10 & payment due date May 6?
(usually set up payment in full on statement due date)
Is availability typically 4 wks or 6 wks?? (May travel planned) Thanks!

(also, how do I get flyertalk responses emailed to me???)

The bonus points should be reflected on the April 10 statement, and in reality they should be available in your Honors account within a couple of days thereafter. The due date has nothing to do with the posting of the bonus points.

When you say you "breached" the $2K spend, are you saying that the charges have POSTED or that the charges are shown as "Pending"? If it is posted, then you should be OK, if the charges are Pending, then it depends on when the charge actually posts.

75K links appear to be dead. Both return "A system error has caused a delay in processing your application."

It's great that you did that, you seem to be an endless source of new links.

I might mention for anyone who hasn't checked yet that both of those are 24 month limit links.

sorry if this is a stupid questions and I am missing the obvious answer - I see the the wiki and some posts mention a 24 month waiting period, but other posts say 18 months - which is it? or do different cards have a different period? I am 16 months out from my last citi hilton cancellation (I think I did 7 of them to churn for our honeymoon)
