Re: Chase CLI question

You can request a CLI at any time, but it's a HP. Given that, it's probably best to wait 6 months unless there is a notable improvement in your scores.

As far as VS goes, your card has to be open > 12 months before it can be considered for upgrade.

Re: Chase CLI question

I just requested to upgrade mine to a signature a few weeks ago. At first they said I couldn't because it needed a minumum $5,000 CL and that I would have to request a CLI. I did that and they increased the CL to $5,000. I asked if it was also upgraded to a signature and they told me they couldn't because I haven't had it for a year. I will try again at the end of June when it turns 1 year old.

AMEX BCE $25,000 | CSP $12,000 | Sallie Mae $10,000 | USAA Platinum $7,000 | Discover IT $5,850 | Citi Double Cash $5,000 | Chase Freedom $5,000

Re: Chase CLI question

I got my Freedom 8/2012 with a 1.5k credit line. I never requested a cli until last week and was instantly approved for another 5k. I immediately sent them a secure message requesting an upgrade to visa signature. Got a call back the following morning, rep verified some info, and approved the request. Hope this info helps in some way

Re: Chase CLI question

I'll be interested to know the answer to this one cos I got the Freedom too earlier this month with a hard limit of $500 and lowest APR of 14.99% after 0% for 15months (very weird). I've been recon'ing the limit like crazy and no one seems shaken, not even their EO. I already called their Backdoor again a couple mins ago and all she told me was that they need to see how well I manage the account in 6-12months before they can consider a line increase. Oh well at this point I give up trying, I'll go cash in my $135 I already accumulated and S'D it! It's very inconvenient cos I've had to pay 3 times already in a month not minding the drive to the bank to make payments since ACH payments aren't available immediately as opposed to cash payments. Oh well.....

Macy's AMEX $37,000| Citi $13,000| CapOne $18,000| Chase $25,000| SYNCB $27,000| Fidelity $7800| Discover $3,000| NASA FCU $2,500| BestBuy $4,300| Barclay $5,900| TD Bank $1,000|

Re: Chase CLI question

I used 50 to 75% of my CL every month and paid in full. Started with 2k, called in and got 5k at 6 months.

Re: Chase CLI question

My dads been a great chase customer unfortunately life got the better of him and he got hit with a collection which dropped his credit a lot, is there any chance Chase would approve a CLI with a lower score or is it better to not test faith, he knows it'll be a hard pull
