Discover IT high credit limits

Discover IT started me with a 1k credit limit back in Jan 2013 when I still had a baddie on my EQ report. Since then, my EQ has gone up by 47 points. I have called in about a month ago for a CLI and I was told that it would be a HP. I have 6 HPs on my EQ now and don't need any more until a few inquiries drop off. 

 

My question: Does Dicover ever give credit lines of 10k or more? Thanks

it is possible.

I just had my CL increased though it had to be done via hard inquiry + income verification.

 

mxp114 has a 20-30k CL Discover if I remember correctly.

JPMorgan Palladium (100k), AmEx Platinum (NPSL), AmEx SPG (46k), AmEx BCP (42k), Chase Sapphire Preferred (47k), Citi Prestige (31k), Citi Thank You Preferred (27k), Citi Executive AAdvantage (25k), JPMorgan Ritz-Carlton (21k), Merrill+ (15k), US Bank Cash+ (22.5k), Wells Fargo (12k), Bloomingdale’s (12.4k), Chase Freedom (5k), Discover IT (5k).

Re: Discover IT high credit limits

Discover is really strange.  I received my first cli (soft pull) about 4 months after opening acct. and went from 700 to $1200 then requested another cli a few months later but was denied twice then I received an email response about a week later from Discover that they were increasing my limit to $1900 because of excellent history. Thought that was strange.

 

I just requested another cli and agreed to a hard pull on 08/31. The CA asked a lot of questions to verify my identity including calling me back on main phone number. I was only given a $500 increase which brought  my total limit up to $2400. They pulled TU. I called a few days later because this did not make any since to me since my FICO was good, no baddies, and utilization was less than 12%. Plus the majority of credit lines are over 5k. The new CA was shocked and couldn't understand why I was given only 500 and he said that they made a mistake and would correct it immediately. My new credit line is now 4k:smileyvery-happy:

 

Before this happened, I was contemplating getting rid of Discover and switching to Chase Freedom!  Glad I called back about this. My next goal is to ask for an increase up to 10k by soft pull only in 4 to 6 months from now since I really have to stay in the garden for at least 6 months.

Starting Score 630 Current:EX:706(09/01/14); EQ08: 747(10/10/14);TU:748 (10/13/14):Goal Score: 750 across the board
Sallie Mae World MC 5k; Chase Freedom 3.5k; CareCredit 13.2k; Amex BCP 10.3K; Amex BCE 12K; Amex PRG; BOA123 Visa Sig 20k; CapOne WMC 7.5K; CSP Visa Sig 5K; Slate Visa 3k; Citi Simp Visa 6.9k; CFCU Visa 15k; Discover IT 4K; JCP MC 8K; Macys Amex 7.5K/2k; PSECU Visa/PSL 20/20K; SamsClub MC 20k; Walmart 10k;
