[ Edited ]

on my experience... i have Barclay Ring( 5k Cl ), i used it mostly on cash advance because they charged me only a dollar per transaction plus the ATM fee (i always pay in full before the statements cut ).so when i asked for CLI (asking for 10k +) the analyst told me that they will approved me for 10k because of too many cash advances...hahahahha funny.

I don't think so. If I were a bank, I would probably scrutinize customers who take cash advances more than two times in a year.

Just my take.

Probably not...unless you have some sort of credit card/line of credit like is offered by PSECU.

I would say no. Some applications even ask id you plan on using the card at ATMs for cash advances.

With something like the Ring card which seems to be made for things like BTs/cash advances/balance carrying i would say its the best kind of card to do it on, but i still wouldn't recommend doing it constantly.

Re: Cash Advance whats the limit?

Think of the reasons why some people would need a cash advance, instead of just using a credit card for purchases:

 

1.  to buy drugs

2.  to pay for something illegal where the purchase needs to be untraceable

3.  there is no money in your bank account and you can't afford to pay for simple things like a parking meter

 

cash advances are highly suspicous.  they are sign of someone who is going to default on their debt.  lots of them will result in adverse action.

Re: Cash Advance whats the limit?

This is like the recent thread on whether banks like cancelling cards with AF just before the fee becomes due.  The basic question for many of us is: Who cares if the bank likes it!   They are able to reject a cash advance if it is such a problem, and, in general, as they start charging interest straight away on a cash advance, way above the cost of the money, I'm pretty sure they like it.  They keep sending me BT checks which are really very similar.

 

Two concerns from the bank would be:

 

a) Is this a sign of financial stress.  A soft pull of the credit reports could help confirm or deny this to some extent (are all cards getting maxed out)

b) Is some form of money laundering going on.

 

The issuer is free to close the card for these or any reason.  If they do, move on to another issuer, there are lots.  (And if points have been lost due to closure, consider legal recourse).

Re: Cash Advance whats the limit?

Okay but why if you pay the money back in full? Would that still seem suspicous?

I personally dont recommend it. It gives banks/lenders the impression that you are in desperate need of cash or is having financial issues especially if you are constantly doing it.

Some lender like DCU don't even care! I asked about a balance transfer and they stated just transfer the money to my checking and use a check or my debit card! They treat everything at the same rate and care less what u do with the funds!
