You would have to weigh your options.  As Lynette M. would say, don't be FICO poor.     What is your AAoA?

Yea mine is 400 as of now, next month I am going to ask for at least a 300cli bringing the cl to 700, or I am dropping them. I have 4 other cards now, and don't necessarily need them, esp since they have an af of 96 on me.

Why not ask for $3000 since you will drop them if they do not give you a CLI?  Go out with a bang!  


 

Because I am trying to at least get it.

I don't think anyone with HSBC has more than a 1500 cl. Or that I have seen in here anyways.


I Just Asked for a CLI last week and I have asked for 3 CLI's since having the card start at $300, now up to $1700.  It is on their website, never a hard pull and always instant after clicking the increase CL link.  I ask about every 6 months.
