Citi Cli approved- ask for more?

I called last night and was able to get a credit limit increase from 830 to 1500. Should I try to recon and get a larger limit. I know thats a pretty large increase (almost 50% more) so I'm not complaining. Anyone else had luck?

I'm not exactly sure what it was yet. I'm fearful it was a hard pull. Smiley Sad

I did the same thing with my Thank You card; it was a SP for the initial CLI and then a HP once I requested more (didnt know it would be a HP or else I wouldnt have done it!!). To make it worse, I didnt get any more than I did the first time lol Just sit tight for 6 months and request again. I always request about double what I actually want since they counter.

+1 It's a SP at first but they will HP your file if you ask for more. Just wait 6 months and you can get another CLI with SP only.

I entered a crazy "credit limit increase" of $25K, initial CL was $10K. I just knew i would get denied, but it was approved via a SP. Smiley Surprised

Wow 25K, nice!  I see you have the mastercard version of the Dividend but on the website they only offer a Visa.  Do you know if they still offer the MC version?
