American Eagle Upgrades

My daugter opened her American Eagle on April of 2012 and already got her automatic CLI from $700 TO $900. Does anyone know the limit to have in order for them to send you an upgrade notification for the VISA?

Usually around 2K or above, YMMV of course.

It can also depend on your usage. If you use it alot and PIF they really like that and it could trigger an upgrade sooner than later.

I think its all about the same. Most upgardes happen after having the store card for 12-18 months good history and getting the CL close to 2K or above.

Re: American Eagle Upgrades

@LS2982 Ive heard that banks usually like it when you do that. Currently she is using it and PIF in two months and trying her best to keep it with a small balance.

It's best to only charge what you can afford to PIF in a billing cycle with store cards because of their astronomical APR's. It would also look good to them that you can handle the account responsibly.
