Manual Review Orchard Bank?

I've had this $300 limit Orchard Bank card since 2/10 with no increase.  I have always kept it paid off at the end of every month and have never paid late.  I requested an increase today and was told that they had to do a manual review. Are you kidding me?  My credit score has increased far from when they issued it to me and I have good history with them.  Not sure how to take this...  I just wish they would have increased me on the phone.  Anyone have this experience and it turn out positive?

I am also in a similar spot, waiting for a manual review as well I've had the card for around 7 months now. I should hear some time this week.

What is the deal with manual review?  What warrants the need for one?  Are they favorable?

Re: Manual Review Orchard Bank?

I honestly have no idea, I called yesterday to check the status since I originally called last week. I was told they were a little backed up so it would take a few days. I don't believe they will be asking me any questions though, from the way it sounded they would get back to me with a decision.

I must say I would be suprised if they denied me.  My income is good, I have paid them on time every time and I've not had an increase ever!  The wait is going to kill me.
