Request CLI or PC first?

It seems obvious that it would be "easier" to get a CLI on a less-desirable/easier to get card, but is that always true?  For instance, if someone wanted to do a PC from Freedom to Sapphire, would they be better off requesting a CLI on Freedom before going through with the PC?  Do CCCs typically offer you a higher CL when you PC?

I don't think it will make any differnce, you are still going to be in the same credit class, you just have a different rewards structure.  I PC'd to Freedom and I still have the same crappy terms as my old card, just better rewards.   Be forwarned, a CLI with Chase will cost you a hard.

Alright, thanks for the input.  I have no intention of requesting a CLI with Chase, I was just curious (for when I do Smiley Happy)
