Merrick Bank Doubled My CL

Hi question all,

 

My CL was doubled today by Merrick bank... Does anyone know how often they review for Auto CL increases?

Merrick isn't too CLI-friendly, but I would assume you need to wait another 6-12 months for the next (modest) CLI. Others have reported you'll only get the next CLI if you're activly using the account.

I know that Merrick does the whole double your limit thing after 6 or 7 statements. Not sure how it works after that. I've never requested a CLI with them, just keeping them to boost my AAOA for a few years.

They review accounts annually. I'm unsure how they determine which month. Call CS and ask. Good luck!

That's their specialty. I get mailers all the time hawking their "Double Your Limit" thing. After 7 statements. I don't know about CLI's after that.
