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!  :smileyhappy:

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.
