Master 2018 Approvals and CLIs Thread

Recommended Posts

With only one revolver on my reports since 2016,via luv button, Cap1 CLI 3500 < 9500.

 

Next, an app spree:

 

Discover it 9500

AMEX BCE 1000

Ollo MC 1200 (I'll probably regret this one, after all I have read on them)

 

Congrats on the CLI & new approvals! Discover loves fresh meat :)

U can upgrade one of the lesser products CV Barclay's has been pushing the upgrade to Silver on my Red aviator.
I looked up the benefits and it seems pretty cool.

50k annual spend for example has a great return (aside from the lame 1 AA PPD)

10k EQM

6K EQD

taxes and fees Companion Fare x2

Although without that I can't justify the AF to the slightest.

 

 

Thanks for confirming the upgrade path is still there, bp.

 

dr: The companion fare is $99 + fees, which will push you into the $150 territory, fyi.

 

The EQMs - and especially the EQDs - are the most valuable credit card travel benefit to me at this point. For the past two years these have made the difference between qualifying for Executive Platinum or not.

 

The first year that EP seems unattainable with actual travel + the Aviator Silver EQx benefits is when I stop using this card entirely.

My mom, against my recommendation, thought the Discovery IT Fake MilesTM card would be a good addition to her collection.

 

You know, because they match all of the fake miles you earn in the first year.

 

With strong HHI, perfect credit and significant liquid assets, Discovery approved her for $2,700. :rofl:

 

WTF is she supposed to do with this? Her entire Discovery credit limit is 70% lower than her largest single purchase last month.

 

 

:rofl:

SDFCU Premium Cash Back Plus Visa -$30K

Nice!

 

Thanks! I was pleasantly surprised. This is the first time I've been approved for more than a $10K CL without a counter request. I could get used to this higher limits begetting higher limits life.

I just logged into her account. Looks like a $425 charge at the day spa went through.

 

I'm going to have to pay this thing off every other day if she wants to use it for her actual life.

I got approved today for Alliant Cashback Visa Sig cc.

Pulled the trigger yesterday night hoping for instant approval. It went pending, but today morning nice surprise, an email stating approval with 20k CL.

They pulled TU, Fico 760. My 2011 BK7 still reporting on all three.

Later on today I asked Amex for cli on my OBC it went 11k>15k on the instant.

They always denied my requests in the past.

I am good with the rims that come stock. I think I am up to 779 miles now. I can't justify putting fancy things on the car.

      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.
