What's the time frame for requesting CLIs?

 

I have to admit, I don't know when I should try again. This is my first CLI from Discover. :swoon:

 

I believe it's every 3 months.

Apparently not... I got a $3500 increase on Feb 11. After reading this thread I just tried again...

 

Your credit line increase of $1,500 is complete.

 

I love this place. My Discover has gone from $1600 to $6600 in less than 3 months.

Please tell us more.

- When did you open the card?

- When was each CLI?

- Call UW or online/automated phone for each? HP or SP?

- What kind of spend did you run through the card?

Online, the CLI page says, "After reviewing your application, we may need to pull a credit bureau report, which may affect your credit score. In these cases, we will proceed with the application only with your consent."

 

I believe the automated phone system will try to transfer you to a human if they are going to do a hard pull. Hang up if you only want a soft.

 

After submitting, they will tell you if you want to proceed, a HP will be used

Oh, well at least they let you know. I hear so many stories about people waking up with new inquiries on their reports after a CLI.

I opened the card back in back in March 2013, $1600 limit. Tried several times to get a CLI online or by phone (cus support, not automated), but always stopped when told they would have to do a HP. Last time was in December. $3500 increase in Feb, and $1500 today, both from luv button, no calling, no HP.

 

I used it a good deal in 2013 for business expenses, but sock drawered it all of 2014. I've only used it once since 2013 - a to-the-limit BT in November ($1500 or so.)

What is the newest Discover card anyone has successfully CLI'ed?

 

I have one opened Jan 29 -- and I think I should wait until it is 3 months old before trying.

Opened at the end of November, started at 8.5k, they increased me on their own to 10.2 last month I think, maybe two months? Anyways it just SP'd me and gave me an extra 2.5k

I'd say they started you off with a low limit. They gave me the same starting limit with an EQ08 of 693.

Damn, going to have to turn on my computer. I want a higher limit on my ugly cassette tape. It is really ugly, nothing like the picture online.

I'd say so too. I think they were trying to one up Amex and chase which were both at 6k at the time. I just recently increased Amex to 15, Chase wants a HP which I won't give them so I'm stuck there.

 

I'm not one to seek out high limits, I PIF a few times a month anyways.

My highest is NFCU at $25K, but Discover hasn't budged for me since Feb 2014. This was my first CLI.

 

There are theories here on CB that they prefer thin, clean files and give more generous limits when they think they have a chance to be prominent in your profile.

 

They were my highest non-CU limit when approved at $8500.

$1,000 with a soft. Makes it $4,000 now.

 

Received a $1,500 CLI via hard pull in December when the account wasn't quite 4 months old.

 

Still my lowest limit.

 

Still an ugly card.

I got $1k. My limit is now $17.5k. I have been getting CLI's regularly, every 3 or so months. My last one before today's was was in early December. I tried at exactly 3 mos. mark a couple weeks ago, and it defaulted to the HP language, so I backed out.

 

I use the card regularly, for small purchases a few times a month (total of around $150 give or take), then PIF. I have used BT in the past, not not in a while. My account has been open since 4/2011, started with a $4k limit.

      A "backdoor number" is one that gets you past frontline CSR's directly to Credit Analysts / Credit Departments / Account Managers / Account Specialists (different lenders call 'em different things) - these people/departments have decision-making abilities far beyond frontline CSR's; they can take and review requests for reconsideration of denied CC apps or CLI requests, APR reductions, etc. and implement their decisions.

      I got some help previously about opening new accounts, but I was curious more about the impact and possible ramifications. I only have 1 credit card in my name, and it only reports on Experian and TransUnion. The rest are AU cards. I have 8 accounts on Experian and TransUnion and AAoA of about 21 years. My Equifax report is a bit thinner. I pulled CCT, and I'm at 777 EX, 782 TU, and 789 EQ. I have been thinking about about a PenFed credit card and an AMEX revolver. I also may be cosigning a small student loan. I'm not certain on this yet, but it's a possibility. I know that this will cause a score hit of some sort (drop in AA), but I'm not sure how severe. I was thinking about forgoing PenFed and just doing AMEX, but I can't make up my mind. Can anyone give me some insight? I would like to avoid permanently damaging my report in some way. I don't know if 2 cards in such a short time is too much. I appreciate any help.

      My Amex Everyday Card Preferred sign up bonus pts were added to my card yesterday. The sign up bonus for at least $1K spend within three months is 15K additional points. It's on their website and I confirmed it with Amex over the phone. In the fine print bonus pts will not increase or apply to 50% more pts if you make 30 or more purchases within a statement period. They added 25K pts instead! I'll gladly take the extra 10K pts. Just hope they don't correct later.  Has that ever happened to anyone before?
       
      DESCRIPTIO     AEDP $2k Spd/25k MR Pts These points have been added because of an offer or qualifying purchases made.

      I recently have been working on getting my credit score higher and also want to have $100k in available credit (maybe a dumb thing to do).  In doing so I have gotten about 6 new credit cards in the past 6 months.  All of them have zero balance, about $30000 in available credit, I recently noticed my equifax dropped 16 points.  I assume this is from the inquiries and new accounts?  avg account age is 2yrs 8 months.  Should I close any of the new accounts to increase my credit age?  Or just be patient and wait for the accounts to age and the inquiries to age.
       
      I am looking to buy a car next year, and maybe refinance my mortgage, and really want a 750+ score before I do so
    • By StarkRaven$
      I booked a RT flight from San Diego to Hayden, CO on the Alaska Air website a month ago for Feb travel. I did not use any points. Total cost was $337.30. Today the same flight from the Alaska Air website is $468.
       
      On the Amex Travel booking site the same Alaska flight is $720. I realize I can earn more reward points with Amex going through their travel site but the cost is too expensive.
       
      I only travel twice a year and it's usually to visit my brother in Steamboat Springs.
       
      Am I missing something here? Could someone explain or direct me to post on CB.
