Firestone/CFNA Auto CLI

I hvae had the card for awhile. I got the 6th statement in Sept. I used the card to put tires on both of our vehicles and paid the difference thus maxing out the card. Didnt care about Utilization as wasnt apping for anything so wanted to put in heavy usage. Well I paid the balance off before the 6th statement as to avoid the finance charges. My starting credit limit was $1000. My 6th statement showed $1000 as well but when I logged on yesterday it now shows $1200. So a $200 auto CLI. Dont know if its because its 6 months old or due to the heavy usage as I just put $800 more dollars on it the other day to have some work done. But either heavy usage or the 6 months got me an auto CLI.

It worked like that for me, too. I had a $1600 CL, and when I paid off a charge of about $800 right before the six month interest free was up, I got a $200 CLI.

Re: Firestone/CFNA Auto CLI

Just logged into my account and noticed a $400 CLI. Went from $1200 to $1600. I've had the account 6 months now with little usage. Only put $386 on the card so far.

Re: Firestone/CFNA Auto CLI

Same here.  Just logged in after i saw this thread and noticed i went from 1000 to 1200.  Only used the card once.  I just passed my 6 month mark as well so that must be the trigger

So THAT'S what that looks like! Nice little increase. Still waiting for my love button to show up. I got mine in late April so I've got a little ways to go I think. I've heard a lot of people say they get an auto increase around 5-6 months, given that they took advantage of the 6 months no interest, which I did. I'm still suck on this screen.

Re: Firestone/CFNA Auto CLI

Once you've had the card approx 6 months you get the luv "box/button".  You can get monthly $200 CLI (at least) from then on.  I've got higher CLI's but typically they are $200.  And I do it every month.  It's a soft pull everytime.
