PayPal/GE CLI

So today I go on to my PayPal account to schedule a payment for my extras mastercard and I noticed my spending power is a little higher than normal, 2k higher than normal Smiley Happy. Is this normal with no forewarning like an email about an increase? I've had the card for about 3 months to the day.

Congrats

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?

Very common. When I got my first auto CLI, the email came a whole month later. Congrats!
