Apparently, it was a system error and I wasn't declined after all. I could cal the customer care and retrieve my application and continue.
Is it worth getting the Diners Club companion card?

Thinking of cancelling a 16k Virgin Money card (after receiving flight voucher) to increase chances of approval (keeping Coles MC) although recently been approved for Amex Westpac so would recent 2 credit marks be detrimental? Are credit enquiries instant onto your credit file?

Applied late last week and was conditionally approved.
Uploaded payslips over the weekend following prompting emails - looks like it didn't quite work the first time but whatever.
When I check my application status it says 'submitted'.

Should I expect an email or a phone call when it's finally approved? Or just a card to arrive in the mail?
Trying to avoid calling up because they are a real pain to deal with over the phone...

An update on this, both credit checks were completed on the day of application.

How long would you wait after being declined before applying for this card?

I just applied for hubby to get the St George Signature Visa and he was declined (god knows why - he's retired and on a government super indexed for life), so this one looks promising.

Should I wait a couple of weeks or more than a month?

I'd be following up with St George first especially if his pension is over 75K pa. They don't always understand the concept of defined benefit superannuation income and need some educating along the way.

Probably no reason not to apply for this one straight away however

Thank you - great advice.

St George has really stuffed me around recently with the Amplify Business card I got last month, so have decided not to follow up with them this time.

Just finished applying for this Citi card for hubbie and it looks good so far with conditional approval. Have uploaded docs so will see the result soon, hopefully. :)

I applied on 24th May.
No request to upload any documents at any point during application process - I assumed because of prior Citi card and my current Qantas Premier.
Nothing happened..so I called them on the 5th June and was requested to provide payslips.
Finally received card last Friday 14th Jun.
So, 21 days from application to receiving card.
An inauspicious start!
I'm also worried about being registered for the right FF program - the rewards page on the Citi page goes straight to the Citi rewards page.

Strange - there was a section in the application where I linked my Qantas FF account to the Citi card (for additional $49).

The final step was uploading docs. Maybe give them a call to make sure you're linked to QFF to receive the bonus?

I had the same FF number section on application, but given something went wrong in the process and it being Citi we're talking about - I'm expecting disaster!

I would ring them up sooner rather than later then

Always a good idea to keep the link you used to apply

Just did the application and have been conditionally approved. I log on to the application and the status says 'submitted'.

Do I just need to wait a bit now for them to look over my payslips and proof of identity docs etc? How long can I expect to wait for a definitive answer on approval?

Also the link took me to sign up for Citi Rewards Card. But it did prompt me to enter my QFF number which I did. I also saved the application link webpage and terms to PDF and screenshotted.

I got my bonus in the first statement, cancelled and tried to reapply. Got declined. Maybe they have an internal exclusion period.
