It's frequently necessary to contact Chase to request a CLI. Chase pulls a credit report to review a CLI request.
Chase is known to be actively paring credit lines, so prospects for approval may be weaker than what they once were. That said, I requested a $7.5K CLI in February against a $17.5K CL that had been in place 2 years. It was granted within 1 hour.
i got a cli from 4500 to 6000 in april (chase freedom).. i didn't ask for it, and my account was new - only 2 months old at the time
Yep. Chase gave me a CLI and I didn't even have to ask. Went from $15k revolving limit to $20k. Sweet!
