So my TU FICO finally broke 700 and I decided agan to try for Lowes and Chase after being told no on several occasions.
I applied with Lowe's and was approved for $500, I was able to recon this to $1000 with little effort.
The big shocker is CHASE! I applied with them and was denied for a 4 year old bk. I answered a few questions and was asked for how much of a credit line I wanted. I said $5000 (figuring that my highest now is $4000) and they came back and said "Congradulations your application has been approved, I show your initial credit limit as $5000!"
WOW!!! From a TD to a $5000 limit! I am AMAZED!
Yay! Congrats! I was successful on my Chase recon for the Freedom after FOUR times. LOL And they gave me a $1000 CL.

I had 3 successful with RECONS today. Was approved for $500 for Barclay's Reward Mastercard, RECONED to $2500. Lowes have me a limit of $300 last year and would not increase it, RECONED to $900 today. Lastly, I said success with Discover Card Motiva Recon, $1000 CL. BOFA was a failure, would not grant me credit. Walmart did a CLI online from $500 to $700. Amex will not budge on my $1000 CL
