SPARKS CLI??? I hope! I hope! I hope!

My sign business grew almost 50% last year...it was all we could do to keep up.  We are truly blessed.  Last year I got a Sparks CC to help get supplies when my cash flow is slow due to slow ARs.  They gave me one with a $2k CL.  It's been okay but I really need an increase.  Indications are that I will do just as well or better in '14.  So I know the drill...I sent a request to the CapOne CEO's fake email address and explained my case and expected to hear something next week.......WRONG!  They called me an hour later at like 7pm!!  Asked me the usual questions....income, outgo and if I would take less than my requested increase to $7500.  The guys says "is this all you want?...are you sure?"  I'm like "okay make it $10k" to whcih he replied "that's better."  I don't know what he knows but I hope he's right!

Good luck and let us know 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: SPARKS CLI??? I hope! I hope! I hope!

They just now called me.  The CSR said he had good news for me.  I started me at $2k just 5 months ago.....I wanted $7500....the original CSR pushed me to go for $10k and they came back with a $3,500 CLI to $5500.00.  Considering I was at 584 FICO just 13 months ago w/ ZERO credit to now FICO score over 700 and $20,000 in available credit...I'll take it!
