No Discover CLI for me...

Shot down.  Got the "you will recieve a letter in 7-10 days explaining why" from the rep.   Got the letter today.

 

We were unable to accomodate an increase for the following reasons:

BUREAU REPORTS HIGH BALANCE HISTORY ON BANKCARDS

BUREAU REPORTS TOO MANY BANKCARD ACCOUNTS WITH HIGH BALANCE

BUREAU-REPORTED RATIO OF BALANCES TO CREDIT LINES ON BANKCARDS

 

Did BT's so some of the cards are on the high side.  I will get those down over the next year.

 

But there is nothing I can do about "HIGH BALANCE HISTORY".  Their number one item.

 

 

They reported a TU FICO of 754.  Does Disocver use TU04 or TU08?  Anyone know?  Because that is about the number I got form Walmart for my TU08.


Starting Score: 693 TU FICO, 679 EQ FICO
Current Score: 748 TU(12/12), 783 TU98 , 813 TU08 FICO, 744 EQ FICO , 735 EX(9/12), 794 EX08 FICO, 809 EX08 bankcard FICO
Goal Score: 750+, but shooting for the 800's
Hyatt Visa Sig ($23K), Amex BCP (20.7K), BofA Travel Rewards ($17.5), B&N World MC ($17.3K), Amex RP Gold (NPSL w/ S&T), Cash+ Sig (15K), FNBO Visa (13.1K), Hilton Surpass (10K), Freedom Visa Sig ($8.6K), Disc It ($8K), Citi Dia Pref MC ($3.7K),Sam's D ($8.5K), Wally D ($7.5K), JCP($5.3K)

Sorry to hear, makes me worried I won't get one at the end of the month, they may not like the new Barclays account.

I didn't even know that the high balance number could affect getting credit! And to answer your question, there is no way to get it down, because it is reported as your highest balance. Maybe that number falls off after a year or two? Anyone know ifthat happens?

Re: No Discover CLI for me...

Discover is a strange beast. I would not "expect" a CLI at 6 months. It took me about a year to get my CL up to a "decent" limit. Today, it sits at $5k.
