Master 2018 Approvals and CLIs Thread

Recommended Posts


I dont know how or why, but NFCU just approved my CC request and gave me a $15K CL with a 620 score. I do have a few $k in the account when I applied so I dont know if that was a factor.

PayPal CLI via 9K to 18K. Thanks to CB advice and guidance, and Cred Sol!

 

Will have 8 CC accounts w 0 balance this month with total utilization of <1.5% on TL of 200K. Planning on apps with AlliantCU and either CSR or AmexPlatinum (for travel) in the next 2 weeks, then reprioritizing spend to have only 3 cards routinely active (Amex BCP - 6% for groceries, Chase Amazon - 5% for my primary shopping addiction, and balance of spend on Alliant - 3%; other cards will be strategic spend to meet SUB requirements, or miles/points accumulation, or to keep card active. Target TL of 250K, then gardening for a while unless/until something amazing comes out or up. All scores >800 now, target of >830s across the board by end of 2018. Thank you CB pros for all your help!

Playstation visa 2k, TU 660.

Also Target 300 temp limit, will wait till I get the card and see real limit.

Glad I got back in with target and capone(for a while I couldn't get approved and they wouldn't even do a credit pull, even though I have QS1 already).

Penfed Cash rewards, $15,000. Not instant. Had to provide POI in the form of 2 paystubs.

 

I think I triggered that request by putting down my annual income($42,000) on the App where the app asked for monthly income.

 

Initially they wanted to approve me for $10,000 unless I also submitted 2 years of Tax returns showing my self employment income

 

I told the CSR that I can send the tax return and asked to speak to the underwriter. The CSR told me I can't talk to the underwriter and that he will take my concern to him.

 

After a few minutes on hold he came back and said that the underwriter approved the higher CL after reviewing my CR and seeing that I have large CLs without any balances.

 

He said he doesn't understand why the system requested POI. Hope this helps someone trying to play Penfed.

HSBC 2k>3.5k

 

For only using it once, the app sucks, and having a couple months, they are CLI friendly

 

Congrats!!!

 

I applied for a cli on my Sam's club MasterCard. My starting limit was 4000. Asked for 8000. Instantly approved with no hard pull.

 

That's Great!!!

Just approved for the Citibank Costco Anywhere Visa with a credit limit of $4,000. Was planning to apply for this card sometime in the future but yesterday my mechanic informed me that my tires are getting to be in shabby condition (and he doesn't even sell tires). Received a Costco flyer in today's mail advertising $70 off a set of Michelins with an additional $60 off if you pay with the Citibank Costco card.

 

I had applied for this card a couple years back when Costco first switched over to Visa. Was outright denied at that time. Had a bunch of bad items fall off my credit reports last month due to age.

      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.
    • By aroberson
      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 ccn3
      I'm looking for input on what cards to app for. My bk7 is off of my EQ and EX, and should be off TU any day now. I'm trying to accomplish several things with this app spree.
      1. Maximize my rewards on my spending.
      2. Establish/reestablish positive relationships with lenders that may be of benefit me in the future.
      3. Broaden my base of cards so that, once these are aged, getting a new card here or there will have little to no impact on my AAoA. I am planning to nearly double my current number of credit cards(10). This will hurt my scores significantly in the short term, but should make my credit more solid over time. 
       
      Cards I currently have:
      Fidelity Rewards
      Chase Freedom
      Discover IT
      USAA Rewards Amex
      Wells Fargo Cash Back
      NFCU Platinum
      Barclay Rewards
      Penfed Platinum Rewards
      State Department Platinum Rewards
      Quicksilver
       
      My list of cards that I am considering, with purposes in parentheses:
      Citi Double Cash (reestablish a relationship with Citi while giving me another 2% option)
      US Bank Cash+ (5% categories)
      Amex BCE (3% at supermarkets)
      BOA Cash Rewards (3% category)
      Amazon Prime Rewards Visa (5% at Amazon)
      Capital One Savor One (3% on dining and entertainment) (I am already getting 3% on dining with my USAA Rewards Amex, so this one may not be worth my interest)
      State Department Cashback Rewards Plus (another 2% card with no redemption hoops, plus cell phone protection, extended warranty, CDW, trip cancellation)
      USAA Cashback Rewards Plus Amex (5% cashback on gas)
      Chase Freedom Unlimited (Considering this one only for the $150 bonus and to get another Chase card before I go over the 5/24. I really don't see any use for it otherwise. The Freedom Card which I already have is their only card that seems particularly useful to me) 
      ETA: Looking at the Chase Ink Business Cash (5% categories +$500 bonus) I'm just wondering what potential issues there are with using a business card for personal expenses?
       
      I would appreciate any suggestions of other cards that may be useful, or input on the usefulness of cards I am already considering.
