Recon CL with Discover??

Has anyone had luck reconning a limit with Discover?? I have a $4,000@0% bal on my Travelocity Amex still, and while I am in a position to pay it off, I'd rather leave my cash in the bank/invested getting a little interest/div income and just xfer this balance so I can build cred with Discover.
My initial limit is $4k, and to do the BT @0% for 15 mos., I'd prob need a $9-10k limit to avoid any mess up on util.

Has anyone here had luck with reconning a higher limit with Discover?? I literally just opened the account, and I'm also willing to cld another account by a few thousand if needed (I don't need $7k at BR, LOL).
Any advice/info would be helpful. Btw, I've paid about $700 on the Trav Amex this month alone, so again...not a cashflow prob.

Re: Recon CL with Discover??

From my experiance Discover makes you wait 6 months no matter what. You can try but I have never heard of anyone getting one before 6 months.

Re: Recon CL with Discover??

Dang.... If that's the case then I may just pay it off lol.. It just kinda sucks cause once I pay that, I won't really have any cc debt to continue building my credit history. Hmmmm

Have yall heard of Barclay's extending 0% offers? Like for an extra couple of months? Lol

Re: Recon CL with Discover??

I've tried multiple times to get an inscrease on my initial CL, and multiples to get a CLI before 6 months, and they didn't give it to me. I tried to get a CLI after 6 months, and they want to HP my report. So I gave up.

 

I have heard that they extend 0% intro though

BCE: $0/$11,200, CSP: $0/$6500, Chase Priority Club: $0/$3500, Freedom: $0/$6000, Barclays NFL: $0/$7000 Discover: $0/$12,500, Citi Dividend: $0/$3500

Swift-did you hear that Barclay's extends 0% offers or Discover? I saw on here that Discover had, but never seen that Barclay's had...

Re: Recon CL with Discover??

I was referring to Discover.

 

How it happened what they called for a CLI, then they "counter offered" with 0% extension

BCE: $0/$11,200, CSP: $0/$6500, Chase Priority Club: $0/$3500, Freedom: $0/$6000, Barclays NFL: $0/$7000 Discover: $0/$12,500, Citi Dividend: $0/$3500
