At one point in 2012 I had revolving limits totaling $750.  

 

Back then my only card was an Amex Platinum with a $500 spending limit.

Hmmm ... interesting concept.  There are a few things I won't give.  What about you?

Just that there were issuers giving nice limits then even though some big banks were not doing so.  I thought it was you anyway...  I received some nice limits during and after the crash from oddball issuers.

I contacted BA in 2011/2012 for an online CLI, was directed to call for consideration, and wound up having all 3 of my CL's whacked down.

I got bit by that too on an MBNA card transferred when BofA bought them out. Never able to get it back. However, it was a  lesson learned. Ever since then, I've never initiated a credit line increase. It is a good day when I can keep what I have.
