Re: Anybody got a Cli is Every Ccc Being stingy???

DW just got a CLI from BoA after asking for one online (actually, I asked in her place :smileyhappy: ) The same income I put in for my request (just in reverse) and she gets instant approval and I get the 3-5 day notice.  Must be the difference between a high 700 average FICO score and a low 700 average score.

Just hit the BofA luv button and went from $15K to $18K. Opened the account this past February, and after 6 weeks they had already CLI'd me over the phone from $10K to $15K.

I also got a CLI from BoA.  Logged into online banking to check something, and noticed they had given me a nice 4K auto CLI.  :smileyhappy:
 
Now, BoA and Amex are my highest CLs, both at 25K.

DW went from 12k to 13.9k (I never know how much to ask for, probably should have asked for more)  I think I asked to go from 5k to 6.9k.

Re: Anybody got a Cli is Every Ccc Being stingy???

I got a whole $300 (taking me from $750 to $1050) from the ever-generous Cap1 - actually, given their reputation for being so stingy CLI-wise, I was amazed even to have got that.

Also Macy's doubled my CL from $700 to $1400 a couple of weeks ago - now, if only they'd actually report that to the CRAs, that would be splendid...

Oh, and AmEx upped me from $2800 to $7400 on my Delta SkyMiles back in May. I'd forgotten about that.
