Discover CLI when to ask ??

Hello All,

I got my discover more back in Nov 2011 at the time I got approved for $1000. At the 6 month mark I got a CLI to $1250. At 9 months I called in and they raised it to $6750. This month they increased it again themselves to an even $7000. So after how long can you call in and ask for another CLI, I mean so at 9 months I asked when I ask for another increase. Can I ask after the Oct statement cuts ?? That would be a full 12 months ??....

I would just wait until next year to request a CLI. You have a nice limit right now.

Re: Discover CLI when to ask ??

wow....those are some really nice increases! I just got approved for the discover more card last week for 1500.00 and was wondering how they are with cli's when the time comes. Did they automatically increase you the the first time? I have a feeling the dicover card will be my favorite of all.......it's my only reward card!

Re: Discover CLI when to ask ??

It used to be every 6 months, but I was told by a Discover credit analyst that that rule is now gone and there is no waiting period between CLI's anymore.

Discover IT $24K | FNBO Visa $20K | Citi Forward $12.5K | US Bank Cash+ Visa Sig $10K | Priceline/Barclays $10K | Amazon/Chase Visa Sig $8.3k | Citi ThankYou Preferred $6.5K | BoA Cash Rewards 1-2-3 Sig $7.5K | Sallie Mae World MC/Barclays $5K | Capital One Cash Rewards $5K | Commerce Bank $5K | WF Cash Back Visa $3.6K | Amazon/GEMB $2.5K | Younkers/Comenity $2.4K | AMEX BCE $2K Target $1K | AMEX Green

Re: Discover CLI when to ask ??

I have charged almost 25-26k through the card so far this year and PIF, before the statements cut. I use it for everything, I read that with discover if you use heavy and pay on time they don't mind giving you increases. I hoping to get it to 15k by dec. That would be great.

Re: Discover CLI when to ask ??

I'm hoping they get me in the 5k range in a year or so, I use it frequently.
