Barclays's Reward suprise CLI

I've had this card since Feb 2013 with a cl of $1900 with a FICO that is around 650 TU. I've been pounding on it quite a bit with airlines tickets, vacation, etc but have always paid a very large chunk of the balance back but still left a medium sized balance ($500-700). I woke up this morning and was suprised to see a CLI to $3200! Anyone else seen automatic cli's from these guys? I was under  the assumption they were kinda tight. So far so good with Barclays!

I went from $500 to $2000 after about 9 months, using it for gas and groceries. I always left a little or no balance.

Here's what the other side of the coin looks like:

Probably should close this. I just saw another similar thread with 16 pages of resposes trying to figure out how and when you get a Barclay's CLI or CLD. :smileywink:

You just got some love from them. Why would you close it? Congrats on your CLI! I love Barclays and they've been really easy to work with for me. CLIs cost a HP, but that should be expected. If you get auto love.... You literally are being shown love for handling your finances well. Enjoy it and keep up the good work! :smileyhappy:

Re: Barclays's Reward suprise CLI

Sorry. I meant close this thread since its being discussed already. Sorry for the confusion.  This card will continued to be used frequently. I just wish I could get these BT/CLI checks I'm reading about!!

Re: Barclays's Reward suprise CLI

After seeing your post I thought i would log in to my account and low and behold i recevied a $2000 CLI. This the second auto CLI I've received in the past year, although the first one was only $500. Barclay's is looking better and better every day.
