they were just hoping to get some publicity on myficoforums.
As youngandcreditworthy said, it does seem they offer CLIs in/at small/frequent intervals. I had my card for 3 months when they raised it from $3000 to $3750, then at the 6 month mark I was denied an online CLI (SP only), but at the next statement they auto-CLI'd me another $750 to $4500. I called them at the 10 month mark and asked for a CLI with a HP - they increased me at that time up to $10,000. So, don't give up on the HP as an option if you really want the increase.
I got denied for a soft increase, no letter giving the reason. It sounds like you got a $250 auto-CLI even though the customer initiated one was rejected. That's what I'm hoping for, Discover is really a big joke though. 10% of the limits of Amex...
There is no real logic to Discover's CLI. From he longest time, I read they were stingy and I was stuck at $6500 until they gave me a good CL with a SP. Just like any other lenders who have no method to their madness.
Some people rave about CITI and Penfed, I cant even get a card from either of them for the life of me.
the real question is why have you not PC'd that More to an IT?
Haha...I was thinking the same!
Why would I lose the awesome selection of card designs?
