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. Smiley Wink

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! Smiley Happy

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.

Congrats on auto luv

To answer your question yes I saw auto luv 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
