Target CLI

So, in August and September, I did a round of applications. Well, my first reward has propped up. My Target CLI has doubled from the initial $350 limit to $700. It's minor, but, hopefully, this is a sign of things to come. I want to get rid of my Capital One secured card once my cards from this year have aged enough.

I had a credit limit of $200 when I first opened my account in 2006. I tried everything from paying in full to carrying a little bit of a balance. Fast forward to 2013... still no CLI. I have asked multiple times and all they would say is that when it is eligible for an increase it will happen. Hopefully yours will turn out different!

Re: Target CLI

That doesn't sound too promising, sorry to hear that and I don't understand since you'll been with them since 2006 and no cli?? Maybe you should talk to a supervisor and let them know how much of a loyal customer you are and threaten to cancel. Maybe that'll get their attention. Hopefully mine wouldn't be the same. I'll keep you updated on any increase that I get.
