Hi is there a way I can call and ask for a cli I just got approved for the chase freedom but with a limit of 500
you can call the recon line and ask them, make sure you have all your financial info straight and a good reason as to why you need more than $500. Worth a shot and congrats!

With only being approved for $500, I can't see them being keen to raising it any higher. You can try, but it will be another hard pull. If I were you, I would just wait a few months and try later.

Do you really need a reason for a CL higher than 500? Serious question. Chase is a good bank known for being strict with CC. They should know you can barely use their product with a $500 limit.
|Chase Freedom $9500|
DCU Visa $10000
Capital One QS $2000
AMEX BCE $3000
|Lowe's CC $8500|
WalMart CC $3100
BOA Platinum $600
AMEX Gold NPSL

Hard pull on CLI ??

I think you can get an increase after at lease two payments. They just want to see the account in good standing with a bit of history allbeit short. Hard pull will happen but it might be worth it.

I was approved with at $500 limit and called the credit analyst and she told me to apply for a CLI once my Discover card reported b/c I was given $500 only b/c I didn't have any other revolving accounts. So I say wait a few month and then request it.
