Ok, so I decided I would post under one thread the CLI's I've gotten lately since I just got three within the last month or so. (One of which I already posted about)....
Discover decided to give me another 300 auto-luv bump, but has still refused any requests of mine for a SP CLI (Boy are they stingy). That brings my grand total up to *Drum Roll Please* 1,900 dollars :-/...Meanwhile, AMEX's 61 day 3X CLI brought me up to 14K on that card. Anddd I noticed that BOA put the CLI link back on their page, so even though they gave me a 1k Increase last mont (3k to 4k), I decided I would try my luck since my reports are frozen. Today I got a notification that my CLI was increased another 1k (4k to 5k) That means I've been able to double the credit line they gave me 7 months ago.
And this morning I tried my luck at my Best Buy card even though I've only had it about 3 months...It approved me for an additional 400.
Best Buy- 400
Meaning this month's total CLI's via SP's is 11,000!
Post your SP CLI's below

Did Discover start you off with a low limit like me? They gave me 1,200...and it has barely moved in the last year I've had it. But I guess I should give it time. It just seems like every other lendor basically throws money at me lol

And that's a good thing! Discover gave me 7.5k to start with so I can't really complain.

For me, I started out at 700 then increased to 1500 (requested increase and soft pull granted) . I called and requested another increase about 2 weeks ago (approx. 4 months after last increase). I was denied most likely due to high utilization. However; I received an email a week later stating that I was now being granted a cli of $400 because of my excellent credit history- go figure. This brings me up to 1900. I will request another limit increase in about a month since this increase was so small plus my overall utilization will be below 9% and the majority of all of my other cards are between 5k and 15k.

Post your SP CLI's below
First off, congrats on the massive CLIS!!
Second, I have a question about your BOA CLI. The BOA CLI online for your was a SP? What did the page say/look like? I'm terrified to click on it. I tried back in Nov and it resulted in a HP.
Here's what I see when I click on CLI online -
"To request an increased line of credit, complete the form and click the "Submit" button.

Best Buy MC for me used to be a SP, but the last two times I requested a CLI it was an HP! Plus, I didn't get a CLI on those two HPs. I am waiting now until Citibank takes this card over to see how they handle CLIs.
