Amazon Store Card Approval & CLI

Apped for the store card and was approved for $1700. I immediately called for a CLI because I read these fabulous forums and asked for the moon (15k). They countered with $5k, which i took. I have been waiting for TU to update my balance and get a higher score (lower utilization)but it's been several days past EX and EQ and I lost patience. Currently at 684 and 37%.

Re: Amazon Store Card Approval & CLI

So less than an hour after, my TU finally updated. Gained 4 points so it probably didn't matter. I need to learn the fine art of patience....

Congrats!  I'm still stuck on my $800 credit line.  I tried a few times and was denied.  I'm gonna lay off this one for awhile and see if I get any auto-cli's.
