Paypal Extras Approval!

Just got approved for the Paypal Extras Mastercard! 

 

But the CL is only $250.  The person I spoke to said that I'd have to wait to receive and activate the card to ask for a different limit and that all cards start at $250.  Is that right???  I have several $20k cards.   What can I do to fix this?

.

I started at $1500.  I'd definitely call them and ask whats up with it.  Even if it is just $250, it should grow pretty damn quickly.  It is my go-to card.  Fairly decent rewards on gas.

Re: Paypal Extras Approval!

Maybe it is your temporary CL, meanwhile your card arrives???

Re: Paypal Extras Approval!

It's a temp CL I assume! I was approved for 1500$ but only 250$ until I get the card and activate it. Credit solutions also stated that they could only increase my limit to 1k because it was only showing 250$ on there side which i declined lol. Just FYI it reported 1500$ already on EX and when I get the card and activate it, I will surely call CS and ask for a higher limit. I'm sure with all your high limits, you'll get a higher limit.
