I applied for this card a few weeks ago. I was not instantly approved but was asked for online account features, such as account alert and paperless statement, etc. I heard that this is a sign of approval? Later, I got a letter from Citi requesting an authorization for them to request tax information from IRS. I did not respond. Today, I got an email from Citi that says my statement is ready. Now, I'm confused, did they approve my application or not? The application status hotline says my application is still pending further process.
