I was just looking at the one of the Backdoor number threads so i called on for HSBC received a $100 CLI i was just denied a CLI a month ago from the number on the back of my card. i also received a CLI back in July for $100. I started out with $300 Dec 07 now i'm at $500 i was hoping for more but i will take the $100 i was told i would be charge a 10 Dollar fee for the CLI next month.

Current Score 3-19-10: EQ 703 TU 712 EX No Clue

Re: Backdoor Number Success With Orchard!

That said I strenuously object to the practice of charging a fee for a CLI. This is a time worn Providian practice. First they would sell you a CLI - then, after you used your credit they would ratejack you. I just don't like it - they should either give it to you or not, but not charge you for the honor. Only sub-prime cards attempt to do this. The others know there would be a open revolt if they tried it.

Hopefully when you app for Discover they won't send you packing right back to HSBC for their co-branded Discover card. If they do you won't have any say-so in the matter.
