CL Increase for newish card question;

Turned down by Chase until I can get my Circuit City paid down since it is $100 OL.

I was 3 days late on that last month.

Do you think if I pay it down to 10% or so ($300) that they would agree to CLI so when I re-apply I have a higher CL to show?

Stranger things have happened but I kinda doubt it.

I don't know, but if it's like the rest of the Chase cards, and I don't know if it is, there will be a hard inquiry for the CLI.
4/16/09: TU: 775, EQ: 805
2/11/09: TU: 773, EQ: 790, EX:790
11/16/08: TU: 773, EQ: 785, EX: 780
Goals for 2009: 0 Credit Card Debt & 0% Util (achieved 2/6/09), Mortgage! (achieved 11/2/09), getting closer to 800 scores (I crossed this earlier this year, but I'm sure I'm not there anymore!)

Oh yes. Chase and hard inquiry are pretty synonymous.
