so today my mom and i went to citibank to apply for my first credit card.
the lady who helped us spoke really fucking fast, but i mostly understood her. we were originally gonna get the college student card since i’ll be a freshman in about a week, i had an account with citi already, and i’d been working for exactly one year today.
so she swipes my bank card and shit and suddenly is like “oh, you’ve been pre-selected to get our ‘thank you’ card,” which is really just a better card overall. apparently, i had a good credit score and i met all their requirements for the better card (be with citi for at least three months, have a certain amount of money in your account).
so fuck yeah. all the timing was coincidental and fucking great.
