My timeline with the application for this card:
Wed 12 Mar: apply online via the Qantas link, received email stating conditional approval please provide ID and payroll documents for verification (only option given was to fax)
Thur 13 Mar: faxed all documents, 1 hour after faxing received a diferent email asking for the same documents (1 from each column) so emailed back with an extra mobile bill just to ensure they had everything
Mon 17 Mar: received a text message to call Citibank urgently, when I did (went through to a call centre) they had no knowledge as to why they wanted me to call and again just double checked I had sent through all documents. 2 hours later received the same email again asking for the same ID forms 1 from each column.
Has it been like this for everyone or ace lucky one?
Yes Sunstar320 I heard that eligible spend for the 80K points is $1000 in first 3 months.
Interesting...I applied stating conditional approval, busy with work for the next week checked emails have about 10 from citibank requesting verification, the last email states:
"I am delighted to advise that your new SIGNATURE CARD application has been approved. Everything you need to start using your account - your Personal Identification Number (PIN) and account guide - will be with you shortly."
Looks like they gave up and just approved me. Strange. Certainly not complaining.
