Should credit cards be PIF priore to requesting an increase?
I don't think so. I just requested CLI on my Discover with balance on it. But, I've been paying the statement balance PIF every month right before the due date. I told rep, the reason of this request is to keep my util down since I am charging at least 1/5 of my CL. Then they gave me CLI from $2500 to $7500.
