After this amazing week of great news (Amex BCE & SPG approvals), I decided to go ahead and request a CLI on my Discover Card. I was a little discouraged because I had tried the automated line last week and they declined me for a 2k increase. Also I have been reading about how conservative Discover is, so I almost decided against calling in. However, I assumed my decline was from a soft pulled report when my util was 89%. So I called the Recon number and they were able to direct me to the correct department.
He asked me a couple of questions, and then asked if I would be ok with a HP (which I was prepared for). I said yes, and he came back and said I was approved! CL is now 5k! I wonder if I could have gotten more, but whatever.
