Sears/Citi CLI Question

Just had my 6th statement cut with my Sears card. Was wondering when a good time to ask for a CLI from Sears is and if it is a HP or SP?

I don't think it would hurt to call for and ask for a CLI. Be sure if it is a HP or a SP if it concerns you.

I hate them too, haha. They are one of my parent's oldest cards though, so I have heard a lot about them. I have never actually been in one by my own free will.

I bought some appliances there for the new house. Everything went well, got the card so I figure no reason not to grow it. Just dont want to take a HP for it.

Re: Sears/Citi CLI Question

I haven't requested CLIs since my account is only a month old, but from what I was told they will HP unless it is an auto CLI (SP if it is). They even HP when I added my wife as an AU and the CSR told me that removing and adding a new AU will result in a new HP so beware.

As of Feb: AAoA 1 year, 10 months
CK TU: 740; Wal-Mart TU FICO: 721
CS EX: 715
8 CCs, 15 total accounts.
Negs on report: 1 30 day late aged 3 years
5 inquiries
