Auto Discover CL Increase!

Auto Discover CL Increase!

After a few of my own posts expressing my frustration that I've never received a CL increase from Discover after having an account for almost 2 1/2 yrs, I logged on this morning and saw that they auto increased my CL from $3,100 to $3700!  Not much, but I'll take it!

Re: Auto Discover CL Increase!

Thanks! I was very happy!  It probably helped that I paid off the $900 balance I was carrying (the first time in the 2 1/2 yrs I've had the card) and then just paid the new balance on this statement in full.  You get rewarded for good behavior (well sometimes anyway Smiley Tongue)

Congrats on that increase!!!  Every time that happens, especially these days, it's right up there with a FICO bump!  It's that sudden "atta boy" that tells you you're looking better every day.  More responsible & worthy of the rewards you've worked SO hard to achieve!

 

Nice going!!!  Smiley Very Happy

I just checked mine. They gave me an auto increase from 4,900 to 5,900. It's been a couple of years with no increase.

Nice to see that you've gotten an auto CLI. For whatever reason, I never have; I've had to call to get a CLI.
