Has anybody had any luck trying to move credit line from one Citicard to another? I have an older card which i use for tradelines and a couple of cards that I opened recently for signup bonuses and will probably have to close them this year to avoid paying annual fees. For the last citicard I had to close, i asked the rep to move the credit line to the old card but he said he couldn't do that.

There is a little bit of information on Doctor of Credit about moving credit lines b/w citi cards, and the conclusion there is that it's very difficult: you have to talk to a few reps and/or supervisors until you finally find somebody competent enough to be able to do that. Also, if I remember correctly, they also pull the credit report to move credit line (not 100% sure). It could be easier to just request a credit line increase, but i tried it and got declined, so moving credit from another card seems to be the only option.

Another option to avoid annual fees would be to downgrade the cards.  That way in a couple of years you could sell tradelines on those cards as well.

Is it possible with AAdvantage cards? If possible, the cards don't have high enough credit lines for me to be able to make decent money on them. It's still better than nothing, so that's probably what I'll try to do.

I did get Citi to move credit limit from my older "Thank You" card to my newer "Double Cash" card, but I don't think they would entertain the idea of moving all my credit limit from one card to another prior to closing the card. I'm sure it helped that I had specific spending I was trying to do on the "Double Cash" card at the time.

If you are successful with the product change, you might move some of your credit limit from your older card if it would provide a better overall balance of your total credit limit with Citi.

A bit out of date, but I PC'd an AAdvantage card a couple years ago. I went to a Dividend, but they REALLY wanted me to switch to a Double Cash instead. I bet they would be happy to switch you over to a Double Cash, maybe several other options if you ask nicely/persistently enough. I think there is also a no-fee Aadvantage that is rarely mentioned that you could downgrade to.  However, I doubt that it would be possible to switch to a different co-branded card.

On another note, I just finished reading the entire thread. Overall, it seems like the new company has somewhat better rates, but frequently requires nudging to get paid and is overall sloppier. As far as I have seen, the new company is also the only one who has had "bad eggs" - people the CC companies have flagged for fraud - slip through their system, if just a few. Does that mesh with everyone's current experience?

Yes, that has been my experience with the new company. The no-fee Aadvantage card is called MileUp, got it last year.

I’m... dumb.
I forgot to remove AUs and was wondering why the AU requests dried up. Oops. Hopefully I can fill more spots again now, and maybe open up a second card for TL use. :-)

You're... busy with life (plant, dog, wall vermin, ex, work drama).

Doesn't the company send you reminders to remove?

Well, when you put it that way ... :-)

I didn’t get a reminder! I only get them to add, not remove. Don’t know why. I’ll be sure to calendar deadlines next time. I missed the mark by five whole weeks!

Lexde, are you using the first or second TL company arebelspy recommended?  (I get confused when people use old and new to identify which company they're talking about).

I get both text and email from both companies to add and to remove.  The old company's web page is nice in that it shows how many spots are sold and how many total spots are available for each card.  So I know that if one card says 2/2, that it's not going to be sold until at least one AU is removed.

Did you have to wait a year since opening your Citi card to be able to product change to another card? I tried to product change a business card to avoid paying an annual fee and the rep on the phone said that he couldn't change it before one year anniversary. It was a business card, useless for tradelines, so I just closed it.

@ Padonak

Yes, I did have to wait a year. That doesn't mean you have to pay the annual fee. They will charge it, but it's refundable if you cancel or product change within 30 (I think - may be more or less) days.

Got it, thanks, yes that's what I'll do with my Citi AA cards.

The tradeline company should be able to provide you with whatever documentation is requested by the CC company. That's extremely odd though, Barclays has never requested anything from me (or anyone else that I'm aware of). They are the gold standard for ease of use in the tradeline industry. Contact the tradeline company though, they should have what you need.

Wow, really?  First, I don't know too many people who even have their SS card any more.  Second, I thought the government said you're not supposed to give your card to anyone, and you're not really supposed to give your SSN to anyone unless it's for official government purposes.

I'd consider (a) asking them to add without the SS card based on the above principles, (b) tell them they can't ask for the SS card because it violates US federal law (maybe it does?) and see what they say, (c) wait and see; maybe they'll add the AU anyway (not likely), or (d) give up and tell the TL company it didn't work this time.

Is this with new TL company?  I had an issue like yours and it was with new TL company and Barclays.

Unrelated to TLs, but when I opened a new credit union account last year, they needed a copy of my SS card. They didn't want to see anything else that would have my SSN, such as payroll stubs or tax statements, nor even a copy of my passport. I had to request a new one from the SSA because I didn't have it anymore, so that was a bit of a bother.

Huh, you're right.  I have two AUs on my Barclays now and there is a place to add them without a SSN.

I should clarify something.  When I wrote "I had an issue like yours", it was similar only in that Barclays took issue with one of the AUs I added.  They didn't ask for the AUs SS card, but they did freeze my account for a few months.

With barclaycard, if it's no longer possible to add an AU online (likely due to hitting the limit on this card), has anybody tried to add the same AU over the phone? If so, did it work?

I have a card for which I'm sure I hit the limit, because multiple attempts to add new AUs failed. I reported it as lost and got a new card, still have the same problem. Product change is not an option for this particular card according to the representative on the phone. The last thing i can try is to add the AU over the phone... not sure if it's worth trying, perhaps it could trigger an additional review.

Several months ago Capital One required color copies of the every AU I'd ever added.  The New Company sent them to me. One was rejected by CapOne because it wasn't signed and another was rejected because it was black and white. Now my account is restricted.

This is somewhat amusing to me.  But only because I consider all of my tradeline cards to be burners that I don't use them for anything but tradelines or low balance forgiveness in off months.  If Cap One did this to me, I'd ignore them, remove the card from the tradeline account and throw it in the sock drawer.  I'll go a step further.....if any card ever asks me anything about some old AU, they're done.  I guess I can say that with a dozen eligible cards.  F them.  They can put some hoops in front of me and I'm going to pee on them, splash some gas and light them on fire.

You could try but I doubt it will work.  I was in that same boat a few months ago.  The rep will be confused for a while too as to why it isn't working over the phone.  They eventually get a supervisor involved and find the AU limit.

Honestly, being able to comply with the CC company's request for old documents from past AUs seems like it'd be more suspicious. I always say the relationship is 'contractor', which they usually can only classify as "other" in their records. "I'm not going to track down the day laborer hired by the guy that fixed my floors eight months ago, so you're not getting copies of his SS card... What are you going to do about it? Cancel my card then if it's such a big deal for you."

Right now Barclay is my only tradeline card. Can anyone provide datapoints for what the AU limit might be (including over period of time)?

AFAIK about 34-35 lifetime limit. Some people report that they reset it by changing product. My card isn't eligible for product change.

It was the new company. Also the new company says that if you add online barclays wont let you put the social in so you have to call. The new company claims without the social it wont post

That's a real contradiction to what arebelspy has said in the past about Barclays

SSN is not needed for BC cards in my experience.  I don't advocate breaking either company's rules so do what you wish.

It was the new company. Also the new company says that if you add online barclays wont let you put the social in so you have to call. The new company claims without the social it wont post

That's a real contradiction to what arebelspy has said in the past about Barclays

I have talked to Arebelspy a lot but never on this topic of Barclays. I am just going by the adding instructions the company gives in their dashboard. I'll post back and let the thread know how it goes

Just got shut down with Chase. I had two cards with new company for about nine months. The letter stated they were closing account because of Adding and/or removing multiple authorized users in a short period of time. Both accounts received the same letter. I had 5 adds on the higher limit card during that time and none on my other card. I had been with them over 10 years.

Sorry for your loss.  How many AUs in total did you put on  each Chase card in that 9months?

Did they shut down all your accounts or just the AU account?

I had 5 AU's in total on one card during that period. Yes, they shut down all my accounts. The one card did not have any AU's at all but they also shut it down as it is their policy. I got the same letter for the card that had no AU's ever added saying it had too many adds even though that card had none. I have stellar credit and been with them a long time so this sucks.

What was the maximum number of AUs that you had on the first card at any given point in time?

Have you tried calling and asking to be reinstated? Odds of reinstatement are generally very good if Chase shuts you down for suspected bust-out/velocity concerns; it would be worth trying in this case as well.

Had an issue with barclays. They demanded a physical copy of the AU's SS card. Obviously didnt have it. Not sure what to do

Wow, really?  First, I don't know too many people who even have their SS card any more.  Second, I thought the government said you're not supposed to give your card to anyone, and you're not really supposed to give your SSN to anyone unless it's for official government purposes.

I'd consider (a) asking them to add without the SS card based on the above principles, (b) tell them they can't ask for the SS card because it violates US federal law (maybe it does?) and see what they say, (c) wait and see; maybe they'll add the AU anyway (not likely), or (d) give up and tell the TL company it didn't work this time.

Wanted to update anyone interested. I added the other Barclay AU by phone with no problems. Going to call again tonight to straighten out the other ad

When does the new company send out 1099's?  I got one from the old company already along with every bank I have money in and every brokerage and every W2.  Don't see anywhere on the site where they'd be.

I haven't received mine either.  And I couldn't find it on the site.  I e-mailed them, but have not gotten a reply yet.  :(

I never had more than 2 adds on the Chase card at one time. I have not tried to be reinstated but I will give that a shot. Was not aware that was a possibility. Thanks for the suggestion. Will let you know what happens.

New Old company emailed me a password-protected copy of my 1099, so I assume they aren't sending hard copies. I suggest checking your emails.

Sorry, I meant old company! I onboarded with them in reverse order and always get the pseudonyms mixed up. New company sent me a physical 1099; old company sent me an electronic 1099.

I get both text and email from both companies to add and to remove.  The old company's web page is nice in that it shows how many spots are sold and how many total spots are available for each card.  So I know that if one card says 2/2, that it's not going to be sold until at least one AU is removed.

Lame. I forgot to remove some AU's last month and I didn't get and email or text.

Yep, everyone should have gotten a 1099 from new company in the mail this week, and an electronic one from old company via email/portal a week or two ago.

Note that you may not receive a 1099 if the amount earned was less than $600 but you are still responsible for reporting the income on your taxes.

Just posting to say that I did receive a 1099 from the new company even though it was less than $600.  So anybody who may be trying to skirt reporting that income - beware.

Is there a way to check online which companies sent you 1099s and for what amounts for 2018 tax year before you file taxes?

For example, in case one of the 1099s gets lost in the mail or you change an address and by mistake receive a 1099 to your previous address.
