HSBC Discover -Direct Rewards Platinum backdoor for CLI?

I have a HSBC Discover -Direct Rewards Platinum card, and whenever I call to ask for a CLI, they say they do not accept consumer requests for CLI's ... anyone have a backdoor for them?  I have called the HSBC backdoor and they say they have nothing to do with this card? But on the back of the card, and on the bills and online, HSBC is clearly shown?

Not too many seem to have had good luck with CLIs on this card. Concorduser might be able to chime in on this. I believe he received an auto-CLI at some point.

I received this card 10/07 with a $500 limit, which was auto CLI'd to $700 within a few months, and nothing since then.  I use it a lot, pay it down a lot, it is one of my favorite cards!  But having such a small CL is a pain ...

Re: HSBC Discover -Direct Rewards Platinum backdoor for CLI?

I got HSBC Discover  ( I think about  1 1/2 year ago ) with $750 CL and after 3 months I got $250 auto cli making my new CL $1000. After that nothing happend on the card. Also this is not of the cards that I use that often, since I have several other cards with much more higher cl's.

so no backdoor to try?

 

there is no annual fee so it isn't costing me anything, but I really hate these small limit cards!
