Such a great month...

Re: Such a great month...

All of these accounts I PIF every month before the statements cut and they all had a $0 balance when the CLI's were approved, except the iTunes card. My iTunes card is PIF every month before the statement cuts but had a $1,000 balance when I applied for the CLI.

Congrats! Did you call the backdoor num for the Barclay's CLI??. I'd really like to cli mine to $11,000. Grrrr, but they always scare me with the "it's gonna be a hp" talk :-/

The past month has been pretty amazing for me as far as CLI's go..  I got CLI's via the Capital One Exectuve Office on both of my accounts, and then I got CLI's on my Walmart, PayPal SC, and then today I logged into my Barclay's iTunes Visa account and saw that they approved my CLI request.

 

Capital One CLI from $2,000 to $5,000

Capital One CLI from $1,500 to $3,000

PayPal SC CLI from $2,025 to $3,500

Walmart Card CLI from $1,600 to $2,400

and

Barclay's iTunes Visa CLI from $5,410 to $10,000. 

 

While the iTunes Visa card was a HP, it was definitely worth it.  With my new available credit I am now going to be well under the magic 9% for utilization, so hopefully I will see a jump in my scores.  I'm hoping to hit 700+ early next year!


That is awesome!!!

 

CONGRATS!!!!

Nope, I didn't call.  On Sunday afternoon I used the online CLI button, and it asked how much more credit I wanted.  My account had a crazy CL of $5,410 so I requested a CLI of $4,590.  It said that they would get back to me in 24-48 hours, and I logged in on Monday and it had been approved.  Honestly I just aimed high thinking that they would counter, I didn't expect them to approve the whole thing.  So I was pleasantly surprised.
