They don't offer Instant Credit Limit Increases anymore (at least not to me). They used to offer increases from $700-$1400. Then they stopped and just had the message of "sorry no increase available at this time.." but now they don't even say that, when you click on the 'Instant Credit Limit Increase' tab it only offers you an increase via checking the report!
Has anyone else noticed/experienced this?
What should I do about this? (I REALLY need to increase my limit without an inquiry ASAP)

Yeah, that's been the standard since February. I used to get 90 day increases on my Home Depot card of $1500, but now, nothing. My Citi Diamond Preferred AMEX has been at the same limit since last year.
It's my understanding that if you have to fill out the form, it's going to be a hard pull. You can call customer service, but it's likely they will tell you the same.
