Re: CITI CLI!! HOLY COW!

I kind of wonder when they will stop increasing it! I mean I am already at 33% of my HHI. I do have rental properties though maybe that means something... now I just have to have enough courage to ask for a HSBC increase....

I have seen Citi Cards go all the way upto 50K. So you have room to grow with your citi Card. I always had tough time getting CLI from HSBC for personal cards. They have been very generous with Biz cards I have that are backed by HSBC.

Re: CITI CLI!! HOLY COW!

Does the website for HSBC always pull a hard I have heard its their discretion whether its a hard or soft... I was going to try hitting the button and cross my fingers. I have never seen a Citi Card at 50k WOW. I am on my way though.:smileywink:

Re: CITI CLI!! HOLY COW!

What is that issue about CLs that get so high they don't count as revolving credit towards util?   I wonder if that might be a reason to keep a CL below a certain threshold....

Or alternatively, that might be a reason to get a particular CL above that threshold and then not have to worry about what sort of balance it reports every month.

A card with a $31,400 credit limit probably won't be considered as revolving credit on TU and EX.   EQ has a higher threshold.

 

You just have to make certain that all of your cards are not above that threshold, or you won't be able to show recent use of credit cards.
