I shouldn't have apped. *sigh*

I decided to app for the Comenity Total Rewards Visa because I really enjoy going to Las Vegas and they gave me a $1500 limit. I called and they increased it to $2700, but that's still my lowest credit limit. I am really, really disappointed in myself that I pretty much wasted a hard pull. $2700 doesn't buy much of anything for a serious vacation. I am going into the garden for the next year.

Starting Score: TU: 566
Current Score: TU: 741 (Discover FICO); EQ: 755 (MyFico) EX: 774 (FAKO)

Hey lithium78!
Congrats on your approval. 2.7K is a pretty good limit from what I can tell for this card. I'm wanting this card also, but I'm not too keen on apping another card. If you don't mind sharing- what's your profile like?
I've been researching this card and they are all over the board with their approvals and criteria. All indications are that they are being very strict on their underwriting for this card unlike their other co-branded cards. Thanks for the info in advance! Smiley Happy

Congratulations on your approval. Hopefully the auto CLI will be more satisfying.

Same thing here --  they only gave me a $2000 limit which is my lowest. I'm waiting hopefully for an auto cli in 6 months. If they don't regulary give me auto cli's I will probably give the card up. I read here creditors don't like to see low limit cards in your portfolio , or they'd rather see high limit cards on your report since it'll look like you can handle/manage money better. Is this true?

I find a visa by Comenity weird because they do give some nice limits for store cards like West Elm and Z Gallerie and such but huge $10k lines or something I just never read or hear of and this Total Visa is no different... sounds like a pretty high limit for starters from them to me... sorry I know probably not what you want to hear.
