Re: Discover Auto CLI

I've had mine since the first week of March. No auto-CLIs, nor do I expect one. I specifically got the card to pay utilities and to do a BT for the 18-month 0% transfer.

Carrying a 60% balance on it while I pay it down, I spend only about $50 a month on it, so I'm not likely to get one until I get it to 0 and actually use it the way I'd like to.

Re: Discover Auto CLI

My Discover opened 4-16-12 at $4k. I'm interested in others experiences. My score was 730 when opened and now down to 670 due to AAoA and new mortgage and 6 new cc's.

Opinions and feelings just get in the way of good decision making.

I know this is an old thread, but I felt compelled to clear some things up for future discover cardholders researching for some answers.  Gabo, I don't know if you stated "Be advised that if your credit limit is below 1500 automatic CLI is not available for at least 1 year," in error, but you're wrong. I started at a credit line of $1,000 and after 3 months they gave me an increase, then 3 months later another increase, again 3 months later another. I'm about to reach my 1 year anniversary with them next month, so i'm not sure if I'll get another but I will update. Granted, they've been small increases -250.00- each time but nonetheless, i've gotten them having a limit "below 1500."

Re: Discover Auto CLI

Discover does auto clis fairly frequently. Typically, I larger credit line will require a hp. I've received three auto clis with the first being at six months, then every three months for another six months, and then a neary 5k increased at around 14 months.

Re: Discover Auto CLI

Just received a $200 increase yesterday, one day after my 6th statement cut, not much but a little bump.

Re: Discover Auto CLI

[ Edited ]

When i PIF i push a negative credit into it for good measure. This time i'm leaving it for awhile and then try again for a CLI, HP if they absolutely feel a need for it, but it better yield some results. I been getting pretty tired of sending multiple payments every time i use their $1400 SL line.
