Forgive me, but I haven't read the last several pages of this thread.

 

I have seen that the consensus develop that 17 days seems to be within the safety zone for an additional CLI. I also experienced firsthand that 14 days is too soon.

 

Has anyone had success at 15 or 16 days?

 

I recall a couple successes at 16, but not consistently. Can't remember 15.

 

I believe everyone who was successful on their first CLI has also been successful on every subsequent 17-day attempt so far.

 

 

17 seems to be the safety zone then. I'd like to see more people who don't care about the outcome report what happens at 15 and 16.

 

I would try again, but since I've already gotten a decline I'm not sure my next approval would be very telling at this point.

 

 

Try again now.

From what I recall, the decline from an early request doesn't affect the 17 days clock (see below).

 

Mash that button, cv. :grin:

 

 

 

Recent SP CLI requests:

5/ 3/2014 $1000 automated phone

9/17/2014 $1500 online

12/20/2014 $1000 automated phone

3/30/2015 $1000 online

4/22/2015 $1500 online

5/ 5/2015 $1100 online (pending)

 

Well, I kept submitting CLI requests since the 5th. Today It finally accepted it, but for $1500.

 

Just as a previous poster stated, it was 16 days.

I'm now at $18,000. My Discovery has gone from being tied for my 13th highest limit, to being my 13th highest limit all by itself. :lol:

Just got (2) CLI's for my dad. 2k and 1k.

 

On one card, or two different Discovery cards?

 

 

:D

 

 

That's intentional, out of disdain.

I use it for $1,500 / Q except for the ground transportation thing.

 

Hence the reason a $3K limit or $10K limit makes no difference to me. It's more about finally getting the tight wads to give me something. :)

I did on search on this thread and didn't get any results....so....how long after you activate a new card do you wait to request the first CLI?

Winner at 16. They should add slot machine sound effects and graphics to that page.

has anyone received more than $1500 at a time? just curious.

 

Got $3k first two times and $1k this week.

are you following the 17 day plan?

No, I didn't know there was a 17 day thing until last week. I figured I'd just try once a month and see if I get lucky. I started a thread before this one on discover giving me a CLI. I could prob get the date ranges with a little investigation.

If you saved your emails,

there will be emails for each CLI from "Discover Card" with subject "Your Credit Line has been Increased".

 

Okay after digging around

3/1 $3k increase

4/6 $3k increase

5/9 $1k increase

 

So I'm well over 17 days.

Just got an email that I received a CLI (auto). Went from $2500 to $5200. Discover is once again my highest limit.

 

Might try this 17 day CLI thing.

Just a question for the experts and those who have much more experience than me..... :grin: Will a Discover with a large CL be able to act as a Prybar with other Banks/CU's?

 

Thanks,

232 days left in the year. That's 13 more chances to do this if it goes all year.

 

And even if I go all year getting $500 more ever 17 days, it still doesn't match my highest limit.

 

The card is still a turd - but much less of one.

My last (of 3 successful) 17 days later attempt got the "we'll get back to ya" response. Today I got a letter saying:

 

INSUFFICIENT EXPERIENCE WITH CURRENT LIMIT ON DISCOVERy CARD

 

Oh well, I got it up to $15,500

Please recap your dates and CLIs.

 

You might be the first person denied on subsequent 17-day attempts.

My father's Discovercard has been declined CLI on every request.

 

He has a BT on it riding around 50% utilization paying 10% at a time.

That's what I was thinking too. I don't have exact dates, but I received a $1500 auto CLI right before all this started. A week later I saw this thread and waited, while I read for a week or so. I mashed and got another $1500. The 17 day theory started to form and I requested two more using that strategy successfully. 4th manual attempt got the 'wait and see' and a week later I received hard copy with the above reason for denial.

      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.
