Re: Surprised by intial CL

Congrats!  

 

All this talk is making tempting me to add Target to my upcoming app list... I don't shop there often but the 5% might make their prices more appealing more often.  Must resist!

Now 5/2013: TU 716 || EX ??? || EQ 702

Wow thats an awesome starting limit. I truly believed  Target handed out pennies as the initial CL, I was proven wrong

Re: Surprised by intial CL

nice to see them giving out some decent limits-enough to buy a decent big screen tv on.

Re: Surprised by intial CL

That's a great initial CL. Maybe the TD Bank takeover was a good thing.

 

My initial CL was $500 but got an auto to $900 4 months later. I do use the card regularly but always PIF.

Re: Surprised by intial CL

My sister usually goes to target but is affraid to apply because of the common low initial CL and the rare cli provided.

Re: Surprised by intial CL

In my own experience, I guess I never saw any issues with their CLIs, until reading these forums and folks being approved for small CLs or no CLIs.  My Target Visa recently got an auto-CLI of $500 to $5,500.  I don't use it heavily but their CLIs over the years have been sporadic.  However, I've never had to request one though, always automatic.
