Surprising Auto CLI from Barclay

I was surprised to see my CL on my Barclay's increased from 1900 to 3900 over the weekend.  This was just two weeks after i was discourage because Citi denied my CLI.  I guess that means my scores and profile are better than I might think!

Chase Freedom: $1500, Citi Diamond Preferred: $3000, Barclays: $3900, Chase Disney Visa: $1500, Chase Southwest Signature: $5000, Citi TY Preferred: $3000, Cap One Platinum: $1750, Cap One Platinum Rewards: $2500, Orchard Bank: $900, Kay Store Card: $4500

How long did you have the card before the CLI ... and did you request it or was it auto? THanks!

Re: Surprising Auto CLI from Barclay

I opened the card in November of 2011.  I didn't request this increase, it was auto.  I also had a previous auto CLI from Barclay for 700 in early 2012.

Not particularly...I was over 60% util when the last statement cut on that card.  Not sure what the reasoning behind it was but I'm pretty happy

Re: Surprising Auto CLI from Barclay

I would be surprised too as they never show me any love.  I read others who post they go a CLI after 6 months.  All I ever get is lacking customer service.



Rethink every purchase you make, before you make it. Use the card with the best rewards. Pay in full each month. Redeem rewards often. Use the cards online shopping for more discounts. Smile, knowing that being thrifty allows you to actually get more out of the same amount of money!

Grats on the cli!
I don't expect a CLI on mine. I just hope I don't get AA and I'm happy lol
