Another Little Bump!

Another Little Bump!

Woohoo! After reading one of the threads below about the Barclay's increase, asked my brother to check his accounts (i always remind him to do it regularly to check for any fradulent activity or CLI), and he got another small $250 increase on his Discover, raising his credit limit to $5500! He started at $5000, after 9 months they bumped him to $5250, and now at a little less than a year in (opened June 22), up to $5500.

 

Little increases, but hey, this is his highest limit, so we'll take 'em!

 

Nothing on Barclay's, though Smiley Sad and it's been 6 statements! Oh well!

Hey my long lost friend tell DB congrats Smiley Very Happy

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?

Re: Another Little Bump!

Thanks guys!

 

Sorry @myjourney! I would be here a LOT more often, but I'm putting in overtime at work, and just started the Insanity workout...and then any free time I have goes to my social life, or sleep XD

 

I try and come on as much as possible to read, but sadly I'm usually too tired (and incoherent) to comment D: miss you guys!
