Freedom bs $300 cli with hp. This aggression will not stand!

I reached my six month mark on my freedom card, so I called for a cli. The csr let me know it would be a hp, which I already knew, but then she asked me if I wanted a particular credit limit or if I wanted to leave it open and see how much I can get approved for. I opted to leave it open. The customer service rep came back after a brief hold and told me it was approved for a $300 cli. I was immediately a bit disgruntled, and asked if there was any way to get a recon or anything. She basically said that I was approved, so there is nothing to recon. 

So I called the executive office and said that it was a little bit insulting to waste a hp on a 300 dollar cli. She took my information and said that she would research it and get back to me within two business days. When she did, she asked me how much I was interested in increasing my cl to. I told her 4500-5k because I didn't want to push my luck too much -- including my $300 cli, my limit was at 2600. She called me back the next day and said that my new cl was 5k. Success....Once again, persistence breaks resistance.

Nice CL!! CONGRATS!

 

I'm tempted to call and complain about their dispute process. It's horrible. They may have nice CSRs but in an event that your are receiving unauthorized charges on your account...you won't be getting a credit for some time.

The truth is out there...
FICO scores: 764 (EQ) 732 (EX) 757 (TU) 9/14 | Goal score: 750+ (all 3)
