Ex: 702

I couldn't find anything about it on whogavemecredit.com.  I lurk on a frequent traveler message board, and the consensus there is that it's an extremely difficult card to get.

As it's a "World" card, that would make sense. Generally a World MC or a Signature Visa means that it's a no-preset-limits card, and you're allowed to go over your CL without penalty, as long as you pay it back PDQ.

These cards can be problems, in that they almost always do not report properly to the credit bureaus. Instead of reporting the limit, they just report the highest balance that you've ever had. Unless you do a one-time maxing out of the card, this reporting practice will always make your util look higher than it really is.

It looks to me like the card is issued by Chase, which doesn't tell you much as lately Chase has been pulling from all three CRA's, depending on the card and geography:

It's a Chase card so even if you get denied, you can call and recon it.  lol,

Chase told me they pulled EQ and TU. I only see a hard pull on EQ though. Maybe they did a soft, or maybe they did it recently.
 
interestingly, the first CSR I spoke to 2 weeks ago told me they almost exclusively pull EX! :smileywink: 
FAKO TU: 730 (Too poor to check the real scores these days!)

From what I've read Chase seems to be pretty random. They have pulled EQ for everything for me, new accounts, CLIs, everything. However when I called to recon a CLI turn down last week they harded TU (didn't tell me they were going to do so, but I guess my recon is PP).
Here we go again...

Re: Continental Airlines World Master Card

And remember that Chase inqs often display as "First USA."
