Re: Target Card (Not Visa) surprise CLI

I log in today to pay my Target bill and see my CL was increased from $500 to $1,000.  So of course I run to the board and I see this tread.  Congrats to the others also!  Not sure when it happened, but it was between the time of the two statements.  Had the card for almost 2 years and was getting mad I never got a CLI.  Still a really sucky CL compared to my other cards, but at least they showed me some love.

Yay!! You guys piqued my curiosity so I checked my Target account online and I too was raised to $1K!  From $200 to $1000, not bad!  I opened the account in Feb of 2008. Thanks for the heads up everyone!

Golly bejeebers! Still no CLI on DW'd or my store card. Boogers. I've carried a balance. I've carried no balance. I've kept it at $0. I've maxed it out. I've sock drawered it. I've un-socked drawered it. I've bought a Wii, Wii games, school supplies, food, milk, some clothes, baby items, party supplies, movies, and the occasional pack of chewing gum at the checkout line. I give up. Mr. Target Red Card....goodnight. You're going back the dark place next to my semi-smelly orange & purple socks that never get worn. Enjoy your time in captivity and think about what you haven't done.

Checked my Target account  and went from 200 CL to 1000 CL.  WOW a 800 CLI on Target.  OMG what a suprise.

Golly bejeebers and boogers all in one post!  Too cool.  I love the whole darn post.

 

Congrats to those who've gotten their CLI's!  That's so cool to hear.

I'm holding off on Tarjay 'cuz I know they won't like me yet.  Maybe later. 

Just puttin' syrup on something, don't make it pancakes.

Target has its picks and chooses.  Same as with Capital One. I had my card 9 years.  It converted to Target Visa with $1500 CL.  CL got reduced to $1000.  I reduced it to $500.  I rarely used the card.  The 10% off is not a good enough reward for to use the card frequently.

Re: Target Card (Not Visa) surprise CLI

Woo hoo, me too! $200 to $1,000. I did a little dance and my husband thought I was crazy. I haven't even used the card since May and only had it about a year. I never expected this from reading posts and I probably still won't use it much but I don't have many cards so it helps. I don't even have a regular CC with a limit this high yet. :smileyhappy:
