****Update #7*****

Just requested a CLI on my discover card...

$3000 increase! Limit going form 6000 to $9000

I'm going to wait till the May AS hits for NFCU then request a FLU on my GoRewards card which is currently sitting at a 1000 limit. I wonder if I'll break the 10,000 barrier with it.

Congrats on your rebuild and all the CLI love. I can't wait for my discharge so I can start to rebuild. The only thing I'll have on my CRs is my student loans.

Just be patient and persistent. And read as much as you can on here. That's partially the reason I post updates in this thread so I can also remember my progress and see what's working on the rebuild. Not to mention having the fates of cards open or CLI requested so I know not to request another too soon.

*****Update #10*****


Applied and approved for a used blank check auto loan from Penfed on 7-14-17 for up to 17,500 for 60mos with a 3.74 interest rate! 3.74! Their best rate for used and 60mos is 3.49. I haven't picked out the vehicle yet but it's looking like a 2015 camry SE.

Since I already took the hard pull for the auto loan I applied for a CLI on my Penfed Visa sig card.....instant increase from 5,000 to 6,000 and only a soft pull. I'm pretty **bleep** happy with Penfed right now considering I only really use the card for gas and some light groceries.

I also requested a CLI on my Discover and Cap1 cards but was denied.

I'll update this again when I get the new ride. Thank you everyone so much for all the help, knowledge and advice I have been given.

********Update #11***********

 

 

So  a few things happened over the weekend:

 

 

1) I actually ended up getting a $500 CLI on my Discover card, I realized when I requested my CLI it wasn't quite 90 days yet since my last request, so I hit the luv button again on Saturday.  Its not much but its something.

 

 

2) I gave a Honda dealer an opportunity to beat Penfeds financing rate.  I took 4 hard pulls, ouch.  But I ended up with a 3.32% rate surprisingly @ PNC of all places, and I take deliver of my Certified 2014 Honda Accord SE tomorrow :-).   I got it out the door for $16,000 which I think is a pretty good deal.   With  $1000 down I only financed $15000. The credit score the dealer showed me must have been an Auto enhanced because it had me at 732?  My scores across the board before letting them shotgun me was:  EXP - 690, TU - 665, EQ - 674

 

 

 

Into the garden I go until at least december, maybe then I'll take another shot at  CLI for Discover, Penfed and Cap1.
