Auto CLI from Barclay's B&N MC

Opened the mail from today to find a letter from Barclay's. Barclay's seems to be the only CC who is giving me auto CLI's. Went from $14,300 to $17,300.  I am quite pleased. :smileyhappy:

Re: Auto CLI from Barclay's B&N MC

Congrats, nice limit!  Would you mind telling us how long you have had your card before the CLI?  I have one that is approaching two months old (5k).  I hear Barclay's is generous with limits. I hope that holds true when the time comes for me to be considered.  I guess 6 months, maybe.

Re: Auto CLI from Barclay's B&N MC

The CLI's have been 6 months apart lately. I have had the card since 5/2008.  I do not remember how long it was before the first one.

I forgot to ask if you noticed a SP or HP on your CR for the CLI?

Auto CLI's are always a soft pull. Generally of they are customer initiated, they become hard pulls.

Re: Auto CLI from Barclay's B&N MC

The B&N card is the only one that gives us regular CLIs as well.  We have had it about 4 years and it has gone from $15K to $24K.  During that time is had been used for a couple of very big purchases, but other than that is it used very little, just to get a reduced price on books!

And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding

I used it to run my annual homeowners insurance through, and did a $5000 0% BT. I am in the process of paying that down before the promo is over. 

 

Oh, and of course at B&N for the discount.
