Discover More 12 month wait for CLI

I have had a Discover More card for almost 7 months now (since march 20th 2012), and I keep trying to request a CLI and some say they dont know why they cant submit the request and other CSRs say i have to wait until the card is 12 months old. Has anyone else had to wait 12 months to request a CLI?

 

I just think that 12 months is ridiculous, the card is in good standing and at a 1k limit.

Perhaps you just don't qualify for some reason, IME: Discover likes to see heavy usage. I started at 1k as well and used the card heavily which resulted in having to make multiple payments during the month. I tried for a CLI online and got the message to call. When I called, I told them that the limit was insufficient to support my spending. They were able to see that I put an avgerage of 2k through the card. They asked me how much I wanted my CL to me and I told them 3k and it was approved.

Why is it ridiculous? are your scores really high? do you have other cards that have much higher credit limits? getting denied a CLI is a bummer, but these banks are loaning you the money so if they dont want to give you more then thats up to them. Unless your income/scores/other CL's show you should get a higher limit i dont think you should feel entitled to a higher limit. Im not sure if this sounds mean or not but im not trying to be mean, im just voicing my opinion.

Either way you didnt get the CLI. I've heard Discover is conservative too. Maybe try calling again and getting a different CSR or have the call escalated to somebody with more power?
