I just applied both Joann & myself for this card because you can easily transfer points from one account to any other one (with some caveats that I’ll go over in another post). Joann got instantly approved, but my decision went pending.
PRO TIP: If your decision goes pending, don’t close out that browser window. Wait a few seconds & a live chat popup window should appear on screen. Start the live chat & an agent can help you right then & there. No need to have the hassle of calling the reconsideration line! The agent was able to shift some credit from an existing Citi credit card in order to open this one. Approved!
