August CLI and Such

Been on a roll these past few days. First, I called Kohl's to request a CLI; went from $300 to $2k (finally!). Then, I requested for a 3x CLI on my Amex BCE on 8/5; approved from $2k to $6k. Then, I app'ed last Thursday 8/8 for CSP, approved for $7k. Then, Discover unexpectedly gave me an auto increase the following day from $6k to $7.5k. Then yesterday, I contacted Cap1's EO for another CLI. Got a call today and got approved from $3k to $5k.

Thought I'd share my success and excitement with everyone! Smiley Happy

All I can say is:

Cha Cha Ching $$$$$$$

Congrats 

This point should be stressed more here an app spree should not be encouraged because its not for every profile
A thick file will support more apps at one time while a thin file may see negative reaction to this process

IMHO 4+ at one time is to many for a new file and it should be kept to 1-3 a year but we get caught up sometimes in seeing the little wheel spin and the words approved
