Three new cards, applied and was approved for all three yesterday - see the first three in my sig
Any estimates as to how badly my credit score will be hit? What might it look like in 6 months assuming low utilization?

Jan. 1 - CLI - on a Walmart store card - from $1500 to $6500 (I requested, since I had hit 3 months after account opening).
Congratulations! That's a good CLI. I've had my Wal*Mart store card for about 30 months now, no Discover upgrade or extreemly large CLI. I started with $300.00 and now at $1,500.00, but I don't use it alot. I've never called a backdoor though.

Re: January 2013 - New Credit Card Approvals and CLIs....01-09-2013 11:04 AM
Jan. 4 - Amex BCP CLI from 2,000 to 6,000. Planning on asking for the same for my SPG when it hits the 61-day mark tomorrow.
Called this morning for an increase on my SPG, but was told that you can only ask for one credit increase total every six months, and since I'd already gotten a CLI for my BPG on Jan. 4, I couldn't then ask for an increase for my SPG. I had no idea on that. I knew you had to wait six months, but I thought that was for each card. Now I realize you can only get one increase every six months (except for the initial 61 day increase) even if you have more than one Amex card. Oh well, I will ask for another 3x increase on my BPG in six months, then a year from now, will ask for an increase on the SPG. They are very generous with their CLIs, so I'm happy with them on the whole.
