I Love PenFed - preapproved offer

Last week I accepted a preapproved credit card offer from PenFed. Instead of opening a new card account, I applied the offered amount to my existing Platinum Cash Visa.

 

Old CL     30,000

New CL   50,000

HOLY CRAP! That's insane. Be careful though because I think you are right at the level where FICO starts to ignore it because it thinks it's a HELOC. You may want to ask for a CLD just to be safe.

 

Of course you can keep it and use the hell out of it since your UTIL won't be factored in.

I don't recall exactly but if my memory serves me well, it was $50k or in the neighborhood. I guess you'll find out when they update your CR. :smileytongue:
