HSBC executive office success

After my success with the Cap 1 executive office, I decided about a month ago to call HSBC and see if there was anything they could do about my 2 account (HHB 600 and Orchardbank 900)  they wouldn't increase the lines on the because I had increases in the last 6 months on both.  


But they did cominbe the lines into my orchard bank visa (2% back on everything) and now i have a 1500 line on that card and was able to get rid of an AF


Both cards were open in 2007

I wonder if that 2% offer is still around for current cards.  I'm sort of toying with the idea of playing chicken with Orchard and seeing if I can get it; eventually the card gets closed but 2% on everything would certainly have me keep it for a while and prolong apps to some other things.
