Discover CLI $1k to $2K

Tonight is my night!  Wanted to do some online shopping and get 5% cash back, but I already had an $800 balance on a $1000 CL, and I didn't want to wait for a payment to process.  So, I figured, what the hell--I haven't applied for anything since July, my new accounts have had a chance to age, and my CR has been squeaky clean for over a year now.  My only concerns were 1) I had at least some balance on 2 of my other 3 cards, in addition to the high balance on my Discover, and 2) I had just requested a CLI from Discover over the summer (more on that here).  But, I figured it was worth a shot all the same.  So I called in; it took a hard pull, but I asked for an increase to $2000 and got approved!  It feels great, especially since I was struggling to get a CLI on my $500 limit just a few months ago!

Congrats on the CLI. I recently got my Discover card and feel confident it will grow nicely.

Re: Discover CLI $1k to $2K

Thanks everybody!  Sadly this means I'm going to have to say goodbye to this nice silver spade I've been nursing for the past few months, since it took a hard pull.  But, it was totally worth it!
