I called the backdoor number for HSBC Credit. I asked her to see if I qualify for a CLI, she said they do not, and never have done soft pull for CLI. I explained to her that the last 2 have been soft. I was gonna call back and see if another rep can help but I got busy. Has anybody recently got a received a CLI via soft pull? 


I've read of  people getting them from SPs. It's all about who you talk to when you call, I would suggest you just keep calling till you get someone who says "yes, we will do a SP" lol.

So sorry to hear about that...  I have been getting a $200 soft bump every six months for a while now on my Orchard, and the last one was in July.  Every six months I call the general CS number.  They have always given the credit pull disclaimer on the phone, but I never get an inquiry.

 

This thread is the first I've heard of them going with the Cap 1 "scruyu" policy instead of the old Orchard policy.  I appreciate the warning.  I may refrain from my usual call in January unless conditions change.

 

To be honest, I've outgrown the card.  I'm holding out hope that after all merger activity is done Cap 1 will let me PC to a no AF card.  It is my oldest, besides AU cards...

I feel like a lot of these outsourced CSR have no f****** idea what they are talking about.... or maybe they just don't understand how prized great creditstanding is in America...? LOL so they give us the runaround.

Most have no idea what they're talking about because they are given a script, and not allowed to deviate from it. 

 

I once heard a great line, "A CSRs worst nightmare is someone who actually knows what they're talking about." :smileytongue:

What worries me is every story through July is soft, but every story from August is a HP.  I'll be watching this closely to see if the soft pulls come back.

Re: CAP ONE/ORCHARD BANK CLI HARD/SOFT PULL???

I just got a $200 increase on my Best Buy Mastercard and $100 increase on my Household Bank Platinum rebuilder. Funny thing is I tried getting increase from Best Buy since I opened the card in Nov 2011 and tried at least 3 times in last 90 days. I was sure, i would be denied, but I got it. Also Household Bank Platinum that I opened in Feb 2011 was stuck at $300 and I was even told several time it won't grow...got $100. Not huge, but its something. I think that it has something to do with 3% utilization that I just got on my credit...LOL...Will be asking for CLIs again in March or April...hopefully CAPONE wont totally take over by then. I asked CAPONE for increase too and got the "Currently we are not doing customer initiated increases but reviewing increase policy so at this time go kick rocks" message.

 

ALL SOFT PULLS FYI!

NFCU Visa Sig $25k / Fidelity Amex $12.5k / Chase Freedom Visa $8k / BOA - BBR MC $7.5k / Chase Sapphire Preferred $7k / Best Buy Platinum MC $3K / Barclay Rewards MC $2.25k / Discover IT $1.5k / SY Lowes $8k / SY Walmart and Amazon $5k / Target RedCard - $300 / NO CAPONE IN MY WALLET ANYMORE!
