Amazon Store Card Approval.. Possible Recon for higher CL?

I just got approved for a Amazon store card approval with a CL of $700

 

do you think I could call in and ask for a recon on the initial credit limit? I would like something higher.. Is there a recon number? 

 

What do you think ???

Re: Amazon Store Card Approval.. Possible Recon for higher CL?

I would just wait for the 4 months and request an increase. They are pretty good.

 

Amazon for some reason with me didn't give me a CLI untill I had the card for 6 months. But I started last May with $900, first time they let me ask for an increase I was bumped up to $1700, 2nd was to $2500.

 

I haven't tried again though.

I just logged into my account & it's showing a option to apply for a credit limit increase next to my current credit limit. Is that normal??

Does it always show?

Yes, it always shows, and no, it doesn't work....they disabled the button a few months ago...

 

...too many people pushing it, I suppose....
