COMBINED HSBC & ORCHARD

I'VE had hsbc & orchard since 2005 everytime i called orchard they wanted to charge me $20 for $100CLI i don't know about anybody else but that's not right hsbc always gave me CLI no charge so i combined the 2. Gave my hsbc a nice CL and don't have to pay for increases.

Were they both the same brand (both Visa, both MC)?

Re: COMBINED HSBC & ORCHARD

Congrats!  I have had very good luck combining HSBC cards and I was told just 3 weeks ago that I could not combine my Orchard MC and my HSBC MC... Then again, it might be because the MC was a Merchants Bank card.

Re: COMBINED HSBC & ORCHARD

Trying to get some clarity regarding combining HSBC cards. Have a Orchard and a HSBC Platininum.  When I called today I was told only same type of cards could be combined (eg. Orchard with Orchard).  However, I have read several post where folks have posted they were able able to combine the different branded cards (eg. Orchard with HSBC).  Just want to make sure this is true and if so, should I be wording my request differently.

Re: COMBINED HSBC & ORCHARD

When I called they told me I could combine HSBC & Orchard, but they could not guarantee that the CL's would combine, that it may end up being just the HSBC CL. I asked what made that different from just closing the Orchard, and was told, that close was close and combine was combine.
 
Did anyone that successfully combined hear this and then still get the CL's combined?
