I received my 7-10 day letter today.  It said that they could not increase the card because my account was recently opened and they want to see a consistent payment pattern with the existing limit before granting additional credit.

I guess my one 31 buck purchase I made shortly after I opened the card  last May and paid in full just didn't do it for them. LOL!!!

 

I find their reason to be odd though because they increased my Pier 1 card by $500 and I only made one purchase on that one too.  Oh well.  I will try again later this year.


Try to recon... you have many good points of advantage against a real person... try and keep us posted Smiley Wink


I don't think I will recon. It was a soft pull and I only requested the increase because I was on a roll with my VS and Pier 1 requested increases. 2 out of 3 ain't bad. LOL!

I will save my next request for when I get bored in the garden again and have the itch to apply for something. LOL.

Since last May.  I've had it 2 - 3 months longer than the Pier 1 card.
