What are the typical limits for the Citibank Gold Visa ?

Has anyone recently applied for this card, and if so can you tell me what kind of limits you guys are getting ?

Thanks

I applied online, with the link on the first page.
http://www.citicards.ca/canada/cards/di ... s_code=V8G

It says 0% up to april 2009 on the page, but I actually got 0% for 12 months.
FOR REAL?! i see, when i applied online the first time, the rep confirmed that it will only be up to april 2009 and hence I cancelled (i applied on a friday and cancelled on monday iirc, so no damage to credit score). I gotta apply again. Thanks for the great news.

Has anyone done the following:

Received a new MBNA card (0% for 15 mths) and ask during activation to combine an existing MBNA (1.9% for 12 mths) with a sizable balance to the new card?

I just received my new MBNA card (0% until Feb. 2010) with a puny credit limit of $5,000. I currently have a MBNA card (1.9% until Apr. 2009) with a credit limit of $38,000 with a $37,500 balance.

Is it absolutely necessary to pay off the balance of the old MBNA card then ask for the old limit to be added to the new card? Even if I do pay off the old balance has anyone been blocked from adding a sizable old card limit to the new card? Any tips from experience?

Just want to get an idea before I try and execute this.

As mentioned, I just got my new MBNA card with the 0% for 15mth promo. Problem - the credit limit is puny at $5,000.
I would actually prefer to keep my other MBNA card with a higher limit and good rate. Has anyone been able to significantly increase their credit limit upon activation? If so, please share tips on how you did so? Also, how much more were you able to obtain?

Thanks!

i see... thanks again
so when i call, should I just ask the cs to transfer me to credit analyst people? cause i was wondering i am not asking for credit increase, would that be weird to ask credit analyst ppl to do the balance transfer?

also, what can I say if the cs ask me why I want to speak with credit analyst people? thanks for the tips!!
