High CL good for raising other Limits?

I just got my first real big CL, and i was curious if that will change the way other lenders view me for either starting limits on new cards or CLI on exsiting ones?

 

Thanks

There's an old saying -- "higher limits beget higher limits".

 

You can also use this in a recon situation, asking a creditor to match another limit.

It worked for me but looking at your limits on your FNCU cards I wouldn't hold my breath of matching limits on them for quite some time. But I've been wrong before. Good Luck on whatever happens.

Yeah im not asking anyone for anything else anytime soon.  Im heading to the garden.  But I didnt know if My NFCU limts would come into play if a lender wanted to auto CLI me.

It worked for me. But it could now become a problem because total available credit exceeds yearly income Smiley Sad ...not sure how this will play a role...we will see on future apps or CLIs.....biggest challenge for me is Discover..LOL

It should definitely help a lot, showing you can manage those kind of limits. Congrats on having those limits by the way.

Re: High CL good for raising other Limits?

Thanks, its been a long road back.  But this forum has helped so much.  

 

2 years ago I was around a 600 fico average with a low limit limit HSBC and Orchard card.

 

Needless to say I was shocked at what NFCU approved me for.  I was hoping for a 5k card and I would have been super happy with that.
