Re: How many of you have weird CL?

$808 with PayPal SC. I asked for a $500 increase for a purchase ($300 limit at the time) for a total of $800, I had a balance of $8 and available of $292 so they added the extra $8 and left it there lol.


Note: the purchase wasn't even $400, I just didn't wanted to max the card Smiley Very Happy.

Re: How many of you have weird CL?

My Barclays iTunes Visa has a weird credit limit.  It started at $2,000 got bumped to $3,450 and then the last CLI made it $5,410.  Oh well, I'll talk whatever they're willing to give me.

Re: How many of you have weird CL?

My wierdest one is $6,405. I don't understand that at all, LOL.


I also have:







At least those are multiples of $100, but they still bug me. I prefer either $500 or $1,000 increments.

Re: How many of you have weird CL?

My DH's Lowe's card is at $6503. He had a payment that was in the middle of being processed when we asked for a CLI. It should have brought him up to $6500, but the payment crossed at the same time that a tiny $3 charge that was still pending (or payment included the $3 pending charge? I forgot the exact details), but when the dust settled he wound up with an extra $3 tacked to his CL. I usually just think of his CL as being $6500, but it's technically $3 more than that.
