Merrick Bank CLI! not bad for a Sub Prime POS

I was reading the recent threads about Hooters and CLI's, so I thought I would share an experience. I logged into my Merrick Bank account last night and I discovered a $400 auto CLI. They have been pretty consistant about auto cli, I have never had to ask for one. I took this card 2 years ago @ $600 and now its at $2000. Lets see HSBC or Credit One do that. As a matter of fact, they are on my poop list and will be closed sooner than later.

In the last 6 months they have raised my CL $800, at a rate of $400 every three months. 


I cannot get a card from the big banks yet, so this will have to do.
