Asked for a BB Store card CLI

I requested online, they came back with a $300 CLI to 1.3K. I think this is low, I didn't accept. DO I have a better shot at a better CLI calling in?

You can try - but I have found that calling in does not really make any difference. I just wne tfrom $7100 to $8500 but I think it was 9 months to do that, and I try every three or four months for an increase.

 

Take the $300... At least it is "something"...

 

Good luck, let us know what you decide to do.

Yes I think you deserve more too. It would be nice of them to "double" the line for you.

 

Try going to a store, purchase a TV for $2500 and have the sales person call it in for you. Point of purchase might make a difference. Then if approved, decide against the TV and cancel the order.

 

Kind of "dirty pool", but it might get you waht you want. Worth a shot at least!   :smileytongue:
