Is it just me? Because now I can't log onto anything other than the closed link, or this comment. Everything posted in between is no longer available.

Just received approval on my second ever HHonors 50k Visa. Had to call in after Step 5, to "confirm credit limit amount?"

13 inquiries in the past year
Second HHonors account (First still open)

Preferred level Visa, not Signature (first is a Sig) but confirmed 50k bonus.

Will report once posted

Citi does not care how many inquiries you have in the past year. Citi does care how many inquiries you have in the past 6 months (but only those inquiries they see on whichever bureau they pull).

So a metric like total inquiries (across 3 bureaus?) in a year is not relevant to applying for Citi cards.

Just applied for my fourth, no instant approval but I did get the various additional steps (authorized users, etc). Haven't called but my guess is I just need to shift some credit around. Last one was July 1 and no other apps of any kind (from any bank) since so I'm relatively hopeful (knock on wood).

edit: Yep, shifted some CL around and was approved.

Yep, got one yesterday myself as well! Think it was my 4th? Time to wait a little longer and then go for more. Are you leaving yours open or closing? I've been closing them out.

How long have you been waiting to close them?

Dunno, been doing it kind of arbitrarily. This stemmed from one of my approvals when I had to call in and an agent noticed that I had one of this same kind of card open, and insisted on closing it and merging the CLs. In my mind, this was tantamount to them saying that I could only have one open. Maybe there's nothing to it, but I've been going into recent apps without any of this card open. But please don't take that as a strong data point, and I'd love to hear what others have been doing.
