Cap one and HSBC

Hi,

Thanks

Re: Cap one and HSBC

After your 3rd payment posts ask for a Cli on the Cap One card. Wait 6 months for the HSBC Card.

Re: Cap one and HSBC

From what i been reading HSBC is not very friendly with CLI. I just received my first CLI after being with HSBC for 6 months for $100 bucks. You have to be with HSBC for 6 months for them evan to consider a CLI so she would have to wait until then not sure about Crapital One lol

Did you request the cli from their site? Did you have to call customer service? I've hit the button before but got the call CS message. I'm worried they'd do a hard pull for a tiny increase so I'll just wait it out.

Re: Cap one and HSBC

Is the HSBC card a true HSBC or an Orchard.  CLI with Orchard ... good luck.  HSBC likes to see PIF.  Anytime I charge a large balance and PIF I get an auto CLI with HSBC.

------------------------------------------
Since last December. I've always maintained a lowish balance and always pay the day the statement cuts,  always above the min due . I give them a very small workout, since they gave me a very small CL.
