BR VISA CLI!

BR VISA CLI!

I just called the backdoor number again and got an increase from $3k to $7k. WOW...

so I'm not going to be calling them for a while.... I don't want to 'raise any red flags' as the saying goes.

 

It was a SP.. I'm STAYING in the garden.

Re: BR VISA CLI!

So awesome!! Congrats! Was this after your last CLI 4 statement cuts ago? or did you just randomly decide to call despite time frames? I just got an increase on my Gap Visa but would love to get a bit higher. I had an auto CLI recently wondering if it would be worth calling underwriting department/backdoor number?

Re: BR VISA CLI!

Thanks!!!!:-)
Well, the time frames varied since last CLI, but they were all at least 4mos in. I think it was like eight months for the BR Visa, but I got denied for a CLI on it like four times before I called the UW. Haha.

It was just too easy!
It's even worse since my bal with BR Visa is $0.... Haha now I'll have to charge a little something just to get it to report the new high limit ;-)

laboi, i'd call them!
