BOA CLI questions

 

Its been about  5 and half months since I have received a CLI from BOA. (from $500 to $3000).  I am thinking about asking for another CLI. How long do people usually wait in between CLIs with BOA?  Is 6 months wait enough.

 

I think any CLI results in a HP on TU. (it did last time)

 

also, i am thinking of asking to atleast double the limit. If they dont grant it, do they usually make counter offer?

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: BOA CLI questions

I did a CLI on my alaska card in november and then again in feb (both approved), so I don't think you need to wait 6 months...

Re: BOA CLI questions

every 6 months-12 months you'd have a better chance of getting a CLI with a SP(no guarantees still), but if you aren't willing to wait that long you can get a CLI with them with a HP spaced 3-4 months apart

Re: BOA CLI questions

 

Do you guys call in for CLI or submit the request online?

Re: BOA CLI questions

 


To see if a SP CLI is possible, do you guys call in or the backdoor number?

 

or requesting online is the only way to go and find out later if it resulted in a HP or not?
