Re: Minimum starting limits for these cards

No idea on the others but amex revolvers seem to have a minimum limit of 1k-if you are borderline for approval. Its probably more common for their revolvers to start at 2k, but 1k seems to be the lowest they go

EQ 778 | TU 776
Barclay US Airways WMC 7.5k | BCE 5.8k | BofA Travel Rewards 9.1k | Chase Marriott Premier 13k | Citi TYP WMC 6.5k | Freedom Visa Sig 8k| Discover it 10k

Re: Minimum starting limits for these cards

* $1,000 for AMEX BCE

* $500 for Discover More and Citi Simplicity.

 

For Citi ThankYou Preferred, it is a NPSL card. In general if your credit history is not good enough, you will be approved with regular ThankYou card with minimum CL of $500. ThankYou Preferred generally starts with minimum CL of $5,000.

Re: Minimum starting limits for these cards

Cap1 lists min cl on their site for each card, but good luck getting a pc, its rare. Barclays nfl is a visa sig which is 5k min but they will counter with visa plat if you qualify and cant get a 5k limit.


Not sure about others.
