Can you list all of your CCs CLs and balances? Do you know your FICO scores? And how many inqs you have on each credit report?

The new card has a lower limit than the one I'm replacing so I asked to increase the new card limit. I was told they would increase it but they want to pull my credit report again even tho they just checked it to give me the new card! I wanted to increase the limit to increase my score but my score will go down if they check my report. Any thoughts?
This 802 score, is it a FICO score and which CRA? Just curious, nice score! If you pay off the CAP1 I don't see any problems. Just remember closed CC TLs (tradelines) with zero balances do not factor in util% calculations. FYI, for max FICO points it's best to have 1-9% util of total CL (credit limit) on all CCs reporting on your CRs (credit reports). Also, it's common for your FICO scores to get dinged with a new inq and new account especially for folks with high scores. If you need a bigger CL then go for it, your score alone should get you the financing required to purchase the Dow Jones Industrial!
