First Chase Freedom Auto CLI!

I had always read that Chase is not particularly good about giving CLIs, especially automatically, so I was surprised to log into my account and see that my limit was increased from $1000 to $1500!  Slowly working my way out of low limit purgatory.

Woohoo!! Gives me hope about my freedom card in the future. Yes that is what I thought from reading this forum ..that the only way to get a cli with them was to take a hard hit or talk the executive number into a soft pull. How long have you had the card? Did you have a balance?

Re: First Chase Freedom Auto CLI!

Congrats on your increase!!! Isn't it a wonderful feeling?! I had the same thing happen to me yesterday with Discover.

I hope I get an auto CLI from Chase at the six month mark.

Re: First Chase Freedom Auto CLI!

Congrats, how long did you have the card and what was your history like (i.e. run everything through or just a few small charges and PIF each month, etc?)

Re: First Chase Freedom Auto CLI!

I got it in mid March so I have had it for about 5 months. I typically would run the balance up to about $800 every couple weeks and pay it in full. The last week, I have been making smaller payments and carrying an interest free balance. I had a balance of about $700 when they gave it to me. I have also used the card very heavily since I got it. I run all my expenses through it.
