Re: Firestone/CFNA Auto CLI

ok sweet good to know. I got so confident with that cli I hit the luv button on my walmart credit card went from $950 to $1650 amazon store card from $500 to $750 and then I applied for a CLI on my platinum visa at my local cu that Ive had for 2 years and they denied me saying I already have too many revolving accounts open and too many inquiries. Wasted a hard pull for no reason :/

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. 


Very nice info. Can't wait to see the button start showing up.

Re: Firestone/CFNA Auto CLI

So after 6 months or so when the love button shows up and you accept the invite and are approved for a cli, the love button then shows up monthly after that or a few months later for the next cli? I'm still under 6 months but will have my 6 months interested free balance paid off before then, so was just wondering if its a monthly love button after the 6 first 6 months. Its a great card and my highest cl of $1400, love the interest free for 6 months, too!

Re: Firestone/CFNA Auto CLI

I've had the card since 2009.  After the luv button shows up after 6 monhts, I've had the luv button every month thereafter.

Re: Firestone/CFNA Auto CLI

Does the card report credit limits? I heard at one point in the past they report cl as bal on card.

Re: Firestone/CFNA Auto CLI

DH and I both have cards and both have always reported or CL's.  Only issue I have with them, is some months they are slow to update or don't update.

Re: Firestone/CFNA Auto CLI

Careful with CFNA, though!

 

They report 30 day lates to the bureaus, as opposed to the majority of other banks which report 60s.

 

They got me in a lot of trouble during  my unemployemnt year.

Yes, they report the limit. If you apply online, make sure you go in store and make a purchase, and have them verify your ID. If you don't do that, they may not report your limit.
