Re: BBRZMC Surprise!!!

Wow, this is unbelievable.  I've had a BBRZMC with a $500 limit for almost 3 years now.  I have never gotten a CLI.  About a year ago, a CSR told me that maybe I should try re-applying for a new card since my credit had gotten better since my card was issued.  She figured I'd get a new card with a higher limit and that I could close my original one.  Well, I got a new card alright, but this one only had a $300 CL.  Since that limit was so small, I kept both the $500 CL card and the $300 CL card open.  Well, after reading this thread, I logged into my account with the $500 limit...nothing.  I then logged into the $300 CL account...CLI from $300 to $600!

 

Sure is weird how their cards work.  I never would have guess that the $300 CL card open for less than a year would be more likely to get a CLI than the $500 CL card open for 3 years with perfect payment history.

 

With this many CLI's happening at the same time, it almost makes me paranoid that someone hacked into their system and started handing out CLIs.

I think it was Oprah.  "You get a CLI...You get a CLI....and...You get a CLI!"  Wouldn't that be fun to do, though? Not that I condone hacking. :smileysurprised:

Re: BBRZMC Surprise!!!

had mine since july. I am still at 100. :-( I do hope this is a sign things are changing and maybe the CLI button will work soon. I have used this card every month and some month more than others. I even charged it up to 99 one month in order to show usage and lately I have been putting no more than 15-30 bucks and paying it off. Hope I get one soon. Congrats on you guys that did.

Re: BBRZMC Surprise!!!

Oh, FYI...neither of my 2 accounts ever had a CLI button when I logged in.  Since there was no "luv button" and since I never received any CLI on my $500 card over the years, I just always assumed that both cards were one of their Tier B cards where your initial CL is all you can ever get (no CLI possible...ever). 

 

I guess maybe only my first $500 CL card was a Tier B and my second $300 CL card was a Tier A even though the starting CL was smaller.

Re: BBRZMC Surprise!!!

Thanks for the heads up. $300 auto CLI for me as well. Not sure if it was coincidence, but I believe February was the anniversary of my first statement with the card. Started at $1K with no AF, so now I'm up to $1300. Better yet, balance was up around $850 after Christmas, but I just PIF after I got my tax refund, so the CL went up and the balance went way down. Oh, if only every card could be like that.....

Re: BBRZMC Surprise!!!

I wonder what the criteria they use for a CL. I started off with 500 as well, and I have not gotten a CL. I always PIF, and, at one point, I had "heavy" (relative to balance) usage of this card.

This is my situation also, started with 500 about 6 months ago, no annual fee, always PIF, no CLI.
