Yesterday I applied for BCP and I got approved. They gave me $2000 CL. And also I have my TrueErnings card from Costco with the same CL (12/11). Should i call them and ask for more?

Also i got Chase Freedom on 12/18/12 (5800 CL) and CITI Simplicity on 11/2/12 (5900 CL). In total I have 14 CC and 2 auto loans.

My opinion is that you should call and ask for 6k limit on the True earnings. Then you can call later one and try to transfer some of the 6k to your BCP

you should have low utilization when you ask for the CLI

i tried to get CLI on that card on 11/17/12 and I got declined. Then i got letter in the mail (EX 751).

 

Yes, that was a problem. So now I have to wait for another 3 or 6 months. And Can I ask for 3x CLI on 61 day of my BCP?
