CLI , soft pull approval, then immediate hard pull approval?

hey guys, 

 

if you called in expecting to do a hard pull for a CLI, and you were able to have a soft pull CLI done, but it was still less than the amount you wanted (3x of limit) and decided to do a hard pull CLI immediately 

 

should u do a request for 3x of the original limit, or 3x of the current limit after the soft pull CLI

 

my thinking was that the original limit was the only thing on the actual credit report, but since it was the same institution, they would instead see the new higher limit

 

overthinking, but curious

If you're taking a HP i'd say go for the GOLD, the worst they can do is say no or counter offer. YmmvSmiley Happy
