Re: 1k to 15k in 11 months...IT Pays to discover !!!

Do they typically give auto CLI? What's the mark on the increases if they do...6 month?  I just got mine this month with $1700 CL. So you're saying if you charge it up and pay it down constantly they'll auto increase faster than if you didnt? Or they'll give you a higher increase than they would if you didnt? 

Thats a nice limit OP!

I read of people getting auto cli as early as 3 months after getting the card. I think if you are requestion a cli for the first time, you do have to wait 6 months. Other than that, they could generate auto increases at anytime and alot does have to do how much use the card and how often you PIF or send large amounts.

Wow - very well done!  I wish it paid me to Discover.  I got a Discover card with a 1700 CL a year ago and they haven't increased the limit.  Maybe I don't use it enough. I have other cards higher much higher limits so I'm not too broken up about it.  Just sort of irritating.

Yes, I rarely use it.  I've used the balance transfer function twice to transfer money from a higher interest card, and that was helpful, but its not my go-to card for spending.  I don't like that you have to spend a certain amount, I think 3000 dollars, before you get the 1 recent cash back.  If you run a decent amount of money through your Discover every month, I think you'll have much better luck than I did.
