Any word on if you ask for a higher limit, they compromise for a higher limit? Not just for Discover, but for any card.For example, if I had an AmEx, Visa or Mastercard. Let's say I have an AmEx with a $1,000.00 CL and after 6 months I ask for a $2,000.00 CL and they give me $1,500.00. Would asking for $10,000.00 get me the same $1,500.00 CL or would they compromise for more since I asked for more?

For Amex, yes, it is capped at 3x the current CL. That does not mean everyone will be approved for that amount, though. That just means that's the maximum anyone will be approved for.
They certainly won't go too high all at once. I think usually it's capped at 3x at a time, max, correct me if I'm wrong.
If you asked for a $1 million CLI, they would laugh in your face and hang up the phone =) If it's a game, it's chess, not checkers.
