Reading a little late just paid off tonight!!  I called the numbers for Shell and P66 and got $300 increase each!! Smiley Very Happy
Thanks for the info!

 

I concur! Many thanks! Smiley Very Happy

 

I have been considering closing the card as I do not really use it and with the credit line of 400 whatever balance would report would be quite substantial %-wise. My only concern was AAOA.... So, I decided to give it a shot and call the number - I was approved for an automated CLI of 500!!!  My online account should be updated within the next 24 hours to reflect the new CL of 900. I am hoping it will be a soft pull; if not, I will let you guys know.

what about Exxon Mobil Cards???? can u do CLI on phone without being a hard inquiry?

 

I'm returning late to the party on this one, but to answer the question, the CLI was on my Exxon/Mobil card.

 

OP had another thread concerning Citi backed gas cards at the same time as this one.

What kind of scores are they looking for?  To rebuild was told to get a gas card, but don't want to apply if not going to go through.

EQ was 632, no derogs and 7-8 months of history. They approved me for $750 and it was not instant. I had to mail in proof of identity and address.

Shell does a HARD INQUIRY for cli requests online!!!!  Lesson Learned!  Always come here for advice FIRST!!!!
 
Since you've got the Shell...go for the Sunoco.

I just got the Citibank Sunoco and they're great. I enjoyed the 10% back for the first 6 months (up to $75 I think) and even got a CLI upon receiving the card. Now I just enjoy the bloated CL and the addition to my credit mix and make a charge every few months.

For decent CLI, I had to use my card alot.  I rarely use card anymore... maybe once every 2 months.
