Good to know - I wonder if the 2,000 dollars pertains specifically to your account, or that is there rule in general.

 

Thanks for the info.

Not anymore! I asked for an increase and was told that 16K was the max, they aren't considering anything higher at this time

Interesting.  They do seem a little less generous with their limits: my Chase and Citi both have limits over $20K but my Discover is a little over $10K.  Note that I've never requested an increase from anybody, I've had all my cards for over 10 years and their automatic credit limit increases have been more than sufficient for anything I've ever wanted to spend.

Re: Good to know about current Discover CLI policy

Interesting.  My Discover started at 1.1k in Feb 08.  In Sept 08 I asked for a CLI (with a hard pull) and asked for and got 3.5k.  Around Feb 09 I asked for a CLI and got a 1k (soft pull) to 4.5k. 

 

 

My point?  Once upon a time they did increases greater than 2k.

From 700 in 2008 to 498 in 2012...
4/23/12 -- BK 13 date of filing EQ = 505
4/18/12 -- EQ 498
12/5/13 -- EQ 669
Here we go.... back on track.
