BOA CLI $7000.  My highest credit line ever.  Now I expect AMEX to match it in July when I hit the luv button.

Well in the last month I have gotten...


American Express PR Green Card  "Approved"

Nordstrom Visa Signature  10K   "Approved"

Gap VISA   2050 --> 4550  "CLI"

Best Buy Store  3300 --> 4700  "CLI"


...and then...




Called in this morning (feeling confident) and requested an increase on one of my almost 3 year old Freedom cards (2k limit).  Declined!  Called BD number for an analyst...answered a few questions...DECLINED STILL!!  The analyst said they just approved my SWA card 6 months ago for 5k.  I'm at my limit with them now.  I was a little pissed as I do all of my banking with them.  Then after a while I realized my "confidence" was becoming arrogance and I need to STOP!!!  So I'm officially on KONA for a while thanks to a very nice analyst at Chase for bringing me back to reality...(and she really was very nice Smiley Happy).  Like others here I have more credit available than I will EVER use.  Time to find a new hobby...Smiley Very Happy
