Discover Card CLI

As my previous post, I recently approve for Discover with $1.7k limit and its on the way to my house in a few days. I have a few question want to ask and discuss with you guys.......

What my change of getting credit increase @ first activated my card ?? Should i do it or wait about 6 months ???? I ask them about 3k since i really enjoy their 4% interest charge for 6 months and 150 cash bonus spend 1000 for 3 months. I did ask them when i call in and they said that's all they can offer and maybe wait 6 months to ask for it. Anyone had successful doing this without an HP ??? I also need some recon backdoor number. Please inbox me if you guys have some.

Please feel free to share your opinion.....

Your chance of getting CLI at activation is super slim, if not zero.

 

I got a More card more than a month ago. I tried sweet talking them for CLI at activation. Was told "Wait 6 months". Then I added my wife as "Joint Account Holder" (her score is 750ish). Called in using backdoor. Again was told "Wait 6 months". No problem. In the last month alone I charged about 3K to it (current CL is $1000) and PIF 4 times. Called in again and told them "look I paid it off 4 times in a month. I simply need more credit and I can pay it off. You see..... blah blah". Again "NO. Wait 6 months".

 

I search around this board and many people get auto CLI @ 2months, 3 months, etc. So hopefully Discover give us some love before the 6th month.

Hope this helps.

Re: Discover Card CLI

Very rarely do you ever get a CLI within the first 2 months. I think you're in the right direction; just add a piece of patience to the recipe and you'll get a delicious cake. :smileyhappy:

Dont count on it. Im on my 13th statement and never seen an auto CLI. I Ive tried a few times through their site hoping for a soft approval, and they want me to speak to someone on the phone each time. Ive ran enough $ through them as well. I dont want to burn an INQ till down the road.

Your total available credit is on the high end. How does it compare to your earnings?
