Re: Breaking the $5000 Credit Card Limit?

I broke the 5k limit with Discover it back in Feb.  Did a recent app spree,

 

Chase 6k

City TYP 10K

Amex BCE 16K

 

Barclays is still at $4700 but that was a recent auto CLI from $2500


Starting Score: 504

July 2013 score: EQ FICO 819, TU08 778, EX "806 lender pull 07/26/2013
Goal Score: All Scores 760+, Newest goal 800+

Current scores after adding $81K in CLs and 2 new cars since July 2013
EQ:809 TU 777 EX 790 Now it's just garden time!

Cap1 has been really annoying me lately with their CLIs. Its amazing how they are ALWAYS at least $5K below everyone else with their CL
