Issue with Hooters



I'm trying to get a limit increase on my Hooters card (in good standing, held over 7 months, all paid on time) but have been told by the staffers on the end of the line at the Customer Service number that they do not accept limit increase inquiries; instead, when my account is up for review they will review same internally.  Does anyone know any backdoor numbers I might try/have any information as to the validity of this?


Thanks!  Smiley Happy

Hooters does not seem like you to request cli. they prefer to do it on their own. They gave me $200 cli on my 12th statement. I requeted cli at six mos and was told to wait for account review.

Hooters gives me an automatic increase about every 4-6 months even now, with a maxed out card.
