It was just on my $1300 one... The $1700 cl is an Orchard Acct... Kinda sad my Orchard was higher than my C1 lmao! The good thing now is that if I ever need to, I can get a blank check from C1 and have access to my new large credit line :-) I asked for $7500! But $5000 is a milestone for C1!

Did you get them to remove the AF from your Orchard card?

Re: The reigns have been loosened!!!! C1 CLI!!!

CONGRATS!  I've only had my cards for a year and I always want to call in on the exec line to ask for a CLI.  THEN, I start thinking that I need to chill and wait to see what happens after next year.  Besides, I'm not sure if they'll look at the year that I've had the card and then do an HP (which I TRULY do not need right now) and deny me.  Besides, there are others who have had their cards much longer (and dealt with cap. one's denials for far longer) than I.  So, I figure one less call from someone who hasn't REEEEEEEEEEEEEALLY established that much history makes things a little easier for those that have and truly deserve it after years of frustrations with cap one.  Just my own little corner of the world.  :-)

Re: The reigns have been loosened!!!! C1 CLI!!!

For my AF on my OB Gold of $39... I actually just called the Reg CSR line and asked them to lower it or take it off... I was very nice... the rep agreed to halve it so.. my ONLY AF  LOL... was $19.50 this year. So I guess that's not too bad of a price for an six year + tradeline... haha

 

Next year, I may just AXE them or get  CLI... I just HATE AFs, even if many cards with AFs do have higher benefits/rewards.

 

I think if you have a great FICO and have had the card for a year and a half or two years... you should get a CLI, but C1 is just entirely unpredictable. I've LITERALLY submitted a CLI request with the normal reps EVERY month for the past like..... four years... I have an inbox FULLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL of denials on my C1 online messages account. haha

 

 

Best wishes :-)

Not bad at all.  I'd take that.

 

Now that my Orchard is free, my only AF account is the Zync, and that's 25 bucks.  I'm one of those geeks that actually sits down and figures out how much I would have to spend to make the AF worth it...  And it almost never is.  I'm still trying to ignore the math so I can have a CSP.

 

I bet in six months or so your options with your OB card will change dramatically.  I just love the idea of changing an old subprime into something nifty.

Re: The reigns have been loosened!!!! C1 CLI!!!

$25 for a pretty Amex isn't bad haha... at least, aesthetically... haha. I love math, but I hate it because the numbers don't lie!!!! ... I almost wish I had gotten the BCP instead of the BCE because I def buy enough groceries, even if just for myself, to gain benefit from that :-) I can't even imagine turning my OB into a more prime account... hmmm... I should work on getting that one higher next... it's incredible to think that getting one of my oldest tradelines to become usable again is POSSIBLE! haha

I know, right?  How cool would it be to have your old low limit subprime card start reporting as a high limit prime card?  

 

The way I figure is if I close it, for the next ten years anyone who looks at my report can see that I once had bad enough credit to need that card.  If I PC it, that account will look as if I had prime credit going back past 2008.

 

The truth is, in 2008 I was lucky to qualify for my 300 dollar OB card, with an AF almost 25% of the limit.
