Re: Barclay's usage results in a healthy auto-CLI!

EDIT: for some reason  i cannot get this message to be the reply, it gets merged into masscredit's post :smileyhappy:

 

I know my initial credit limit(4k) was a bit lower than my main card (11k) at the time of applying, and called them when i received it in the mail and asked them to match my USAA Amex, and they counter offered with 10k.  Though its not a card from barclay, they will surely match closely to your key palyer cards you currently use

I have a pile of "pre-selected" Rewards Card applications from Barclay's. I've been receiving one every week or two lately. Thinking about taking them up on their offer to see what I get.  I read something about them matching credit lines if a person has another one of their cards. Don't know if that is the case all of the time.

I mentioned in one of the other threads that I was expecting an auto-CLI from Barclay's anyday now. Well... that day was today! Just logged into my account for the forth or fift time today (not that I keep track of them or anything) and saw that my CL had jumped up by $3000. Went from $5500. to $8500.  I usually put $500. - $2000. on it most months and I've used the balance transfer checks once in awhile. I also make multiple payments each month. This month totalled close to $3k. I guess they do reward heavy usage. My increase history with them is -

 

Opened account - 8/20/12 - $1300. (reconned to $2000). - 5/2/13 - $3700. (auto-CLI) - 10/24/13 - $5500. (auto-CLI) - 4/24/14 - $8500.(auto-CLI)

 

The first increase was after 9 months, next one was after 5 months and then 6 months after that. 

 

If anyone has a long history with them, should this keep going or will the auto-increases stop at some point? 

 

Oh, and I was hoping to get to $7500. with this increase. Made my night! :smileyhappy: 


Congrats on your CLI :smileyhappy:
