CU CLI? Anyone?

Thanks to the great reviews and recommendations on this forum, I have become a CU convert (3 CCs).  I was wondering if anyone has received any CLIs from their CU accounts.  If so, would you please share the following:

 

1.  Length of time before CLI?

2.  Automatic/Request?

3.  Hard/Soft Inq.?

4.  Initial CL/Amount of CLI?

5.  Name of CU?

 

Thanks.

ocheosa & creditwherecreditisdue,

 

Excellent!

 

The more information being discussed about CUs supports the proposition that in this environment they represent a stable and progressive alternative to major banks.  At a minimum, CU credit cards should be an integral part of your credit mix.
