Discover increase approved message

So I played with the button and was approved for the $2,000 increase I requested. I was at $1,500. Either I am not reading this right, or this doesn't make sense. Here is the text copied directly from the approval message:

 

"Congratulations! You've been approved for a credit line increase of $2,000.

You requested a credit line increase of $2,000. Unfortunately, we were unable to approve the full amount. This increase of $2,000 brings your new available credit line $3,500, and your new cash line $1,900 .

You have the option to accept the $2,000 increase now, or request a higher amount. If you choose to request the higher amount, a credit bureau report will be requested and an inquiry will be placed into your bureau file, which could affect your credit score."

Re: Discover increase approved message

I feel like I read another thread earlier today where the user said that they countered his request with an offer that was equal to the request... Might just be funny phrasing based on a fill in the blank type of response lol

 

Congrats!  (And thanks for including your original CL and the increase!  I'm taking notes so I have a good guesstimate of what I should ask for when I hit the 6 month mark with my $1000 limit hehe)

Did you accept your requested CLI of $2,000 or their counter offer CLI of $2,000? Smiley Wink

Re: Discover increase approved message

How long have you had the card? I recently just got a Discover and I would love to get a CLI to bring my CL over $5000. What are your spending habbits with the card?

Re: Discover increase approved message

You must have requested $2000, and they countered with $1999.50.  I think their system rounds to whole dollars. Smiley Wink  Congrats, Discover has always been generous with me.  Here's to debunking the stigma that Discover is one of the stingiest lenders.
