My Best Buy card is my oldest open account. I have had it for 11 years. When I opened it they gave me a SL of $500. Every few years I have asked for a CLI and they have always instant rejected me. When I asked for a reconsideration I was always told "this card doesn't get CLIs, it only goes up to $500". Once again in my credit spree this year I asked for a CLI on this card and I was rejected. I was approved for an American Express card, though and asked to have the balance of my Best Buy card transferred over. The day the American Expresss transfer hit my account I got an unsolicited $250 CLI. I now have a 0 balance Best Buy card ith a $750 SL and I am considering leaving it at $0 if they want to play this way.

Congrats on the increase...how absurd they say it doesn't go above $500. Mine is sitting at $15,000 so you still have potential on yours for sure! Mine is from 2010.

That might be the reason. You could probably reapp this card and get the visa with a better sl but seeing as you just got Amex, looks like you are on to bigger and better things , not knocking the BB, I have one lol
