My 1st CLI attempt on my Discover :-(

Well after having my Discover since August i attempted for my first CLI with them. Called and very nice lady told me that she would put in the information and see if i was eligible for an auto CLI (via SP of course). Unfortunately she told me i wasnt eligible for one at the moment and would receive a letter explaining why. She did say that so far my history with them has been excellent and she offered to proceed with HP and see if i could get an increase then. I politely told her no thank you thats ok cuz i have been rebuilding and taking care of my credit the last couple of years and want some of my inquiries to fall off. She asked me if i knew how many inquiries i have had on my TU and EQ in the last 6 months. I told her 1 on EQ none on TU. She said that most likely will not be an issue when pulling my reports. I told her that i will wait another 3 months maybe try a HP. She finished off by saying to keep doing a great job and i should see some nice auto increases down the road. Even though i got declined i still love the great customer service Discover has! They were the only bank that gave me a chance to reach primeville so i am going to stick with them for a very long time (CLI or not)..lSmiley Happy

I'm in the same situation, I've had the account for a year now with no luv. I'm sure later down the road once I start decresing my debts they'll show me some luv.

 

Don't give your hopes up in 2 months your card will be 6 months old they do account reviews every 6 months so you may get some auto luv!

I will not! I actually opened the card in August (not October, my mistake) and thats why i tried for a CLI. Both of my parents have had the card for over 4 years and i think my dad only has one auto CLI (from 6000 to 7500) and thats it. My mom on the other hand has gotten various increases but the first one wasnt until a year she had the card (not sitting at a nice 10500 limit). So i guess it varies for everyone.

It's definitely a YMMV situation with DIscover CLI's.
