Should you apply for weekend increase?

[ Edited ]

Hi everyone,

 

Should you apply for a credit limit increase on the weekend? On a Sunday?

 

I was thinking of applying for a telephone automated system increase on one of my GE cards.


Starting Score: 722
Current Score: Now 687 what the hockey sticks...from a 784 (Aug 12 EX 751 EQ Fico)
Goal Score: 800

If your outGo is more than your INcome than your UpKeep will become your downFALL.

It makes no difference the time/day/date.

 

The only factor that DOES matter, is your file.

5/2012: 560 credit scores across the board
12/2014: 750+ scores across the board

Given that it's a GEMBC card, that usually means a SP, so I say go for it right now, so long as your file has only improved since opening the card.

Makes no difference from whether you'll get the CLI or not.

 

Does make a difference if they have to actually review the file for whatever reason; banker hours. they ain't going to be there on Sunday to look at your file so you may be waiting an extra day or two longer than strictly necessary.

 

 

Starting Score: EQ 04 561, TU 98 567, EX 98 599 (12/30/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 693, EQ 8 714, TU 8 710, EX 8 724 (05/27/16)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ 04 (01/01/17)

Guess it kind of matters i you want to a little above the counter offer. I definitely needed to speak with the rep.
