Fingerhut credit limit increase

Inquiring minds may like to know. A credit forum just wouldn't be complete without a mention for catalog retail veteran Fingerhut sponsored by Webank.

This one was another mail preapproval in a series that spread all along 2013 for me.

Yea i know, overly high priced items and all that but some personal details to pass along for posterity sake.

Approved at a starting limit of (1000) back in July 2013.

Made a single 40 dollar clothing purchase in November and rolled half of it over to PIF.

Exactly 6 months to the day (today), notified by email of a credit limit increase to 1300.

It is what it is and at least they report as well as auto cli something.

Congrats on the CLI Smiley Happy

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

Congrats on the auto luv 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

In the distant past, and i do mean 20th Century era past, i remember my mom combing thru their catalogs and ordering this and that from them. I think i felt some sentimental favor over those childhood family memories especially at Christmas season.
