Received My Shell Gas Card Today

I got home from work today my my new shell gas card was waiting on me in the mailbox. $500 Credit limit $75 spending limit on cash advances. Does anyone have any experience on CLI with this card?

Congrats! See my post to your other thread about getting increases. If you do it through the online account, it will result in a hard pull, so always call # on the back of your card and follow the prompts. It should all be automated and will be a soft.

Re: Received My Shell Gas Card Today

I'm not sure, but a have read a few posts about this a few months back and people were complaining they got hard pulls on EQ with using the online account request. I have tried a couple of times to get an increase with the automated number and it tried to send me to a CSR. If you have one available for a soft pull, it will tell you how much and to press 2 to accept it, or another number if you want the CSR to pull for a higher amount. Or 3 to decline, yeah right!  I pressed 2 Smiley Very Happy

Re: Received My Shell Gas Card Today

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.
