Cards paid off, in great standing for years, and no such button.  The FAQ says:

 

 
 
Can I request a credit line increase ?
At this time, HSBC is not accepting individual requests for credit line increases. For a specific question about your account, send us a secure message online.


On your main account screen, go up to the top and hover over the customer service tab. The second option is "Request A Credit Line Increase". See what you get there.

Re: Household/HSBC luv button

Thanks for trying to help, stang, but I do not even see a customer service tab.  Does everyone else log in through accountcentralonline?

 

Maybe that's the difference.  If I tried to log in through HSBC's main page it would not recognize my login.  Maybe I have a cheap version that used to be Direct Merchant's Bank or something.

That's probably why. Have you tried calling for a CLI?

Re: Household/HSBC luv button

update on my CLI request:

Hit the luv button last Thursday, got the 7-10 day by mail reply. Received letter today, denied due to insufficient history with this card. Called Backdoor number, lady was very nice. She told me what I already knew, account was too new (just about 2 1/4 months). I asked whether I had gotten hit with a hard INQ, she said she didn't see any INQ notes, so that's a plus. I asked about CL possibly growing, she said it definitely was possible for my card, just not now. Asked about sale to CapOne, she said she wasn't authorized to discuss that. I thanked her, she thanked me, and that's all she wrote.

Re: Household/HSBC luv button

I just wanted to update everyone. I did get a $300 CLI on my bbrzmc. I just found out now by logging in. They did have to ask some additional questions because I have a fraud alert on my cbr's. When I did that on monday they said I would get a letter in 7-10 days. Figured that was a denial. Just logged in now finally and see that there was a CLI. Miracles do happen!

Re: Household/HSBC luv button

Nice. There was talk of accounts being closed, so getting a CLI is good for you.
