Discover Loves me so much!!!!

Just for the heck of it i called and used the automated system for a credit limit increase and it said it had to transfer me to a rep, so after being transfered i said i was transfered to them and they pulled up everything and i gave the guy my info and asked to go to 7K and he put in the info and came back and said it would be a hard pull and i said well lets just continue and he said i was approved for an additional $500 and i asked to be transfered to a credit rep and he placed me on hold and i talked to a very nice lady who asked all the same questions and gave her all the info and she reviewed and came back and said I have done such a great job with my credit file as well as my Discover account and she said she had no problem increasing me to the full 7k! I did ask about lowering my APR after my promo expires and they said i would have to wait till it expires and advised me to call back on January 21st or after since my cycle and promo ends January 20th. 

 

So i took another hard pull but it's worth it!

Also according to my November 20th statement my transunion fico score is 716.

.

Once they report my new limit that should be enough leverage to get CapOne EO to give me a big increase!

Re: Discover Loves me so much!!!!

Congrats!!! What's your spending/usage like on the card?  I am also debating taking a HP next year for an increase.  I asked for one this past April at the 6 month point and they only gave me $500 :smileysad:  I've put about $2k on the card since then.

My spending is all over da place! A few months ago i bought a top of da line computer system for about $1,200 with my Discover card and then not too long ago i bought a new cell phone for $400 with my discover card. Then when they had the 5% cash back at gas stations i used it reguarly at da sunoco across da street from my work to buy sodas.

 

My highest balance was $1,636.64 in June 2013

 

My balance now is $410

 

When i got my card  in November 2012 i was approved for 1K with 0% interest till January 2014. So i have really been taking advantage of the 0% interest and been agressively been paying my balance down when possible!

Re: Discover Loves me so much!!!!

Congrats, my auto-cli was 200$... I was a bit miffed. I called into Discover to discuss the situation, she told me she could run it again but it would require a hard pull at this point I say fine, she comes back saying they are unable to increase me for more at this time. I ask to be transferred to an underwriter or whatever Discover might refer to them as, he comes on, I explain my situation how at just over 1k my IT card quickly found it's way to the back of the line he puts me on hold comes back to say my new limit on my card is 2.5k the four cards I got back in may/june made them a little jumpy. I explained that it was simply an attempt to fatten a thin file that only had C1 as my only credit card provider. He ended the call by saying I did the right thing and thanks for choosing Discover to expand my portfolio with.

 

Not bad at all :smileyhappy:
