Tiny Amazon Rewards Visa CL - Update Auto CLI!

[ Edited ]

I apped online over the weekend for the Amazon Rewards Visa and got the 7-10 message. I called the BD number on Monday and the lady said "I can approve right now for $400." I wasn't even sure that she said $400, but I got an email today telling me the card has been added to my account, and I can use it on Amazon even though the card has not yet arrived.

 

$400? I have 8K with Discover, and 5K with Juniper. Even Cap One has me at $800.

 

Two years ago I was a flat denial with Amazon, and it is Chase. Is there any advantage to just telling them never mind if that is the best limit I can get?

 

Update:

 

Dear jaysdad2k,

 

As part of our ongoing commitment....we recently reviewed your account....your credit line has been increased to $900

 

Can't blame them for wanting to see if I would manage the account. If I didn't they would have only been out 400 bucks. I'm glad I kept it and used it a little.

A new $400 CL account in this environment is better than a CL DECREASE.  Take it, use it, bide your time until things blow over, and ask for more CL later.

Welcome to the club. You got exactly $100 more than I did, and I had one card with $8,900 limit at that time. Those $300 got increased to $900 after three months.

OK, I'll take it, and be happy I'm in the door with Chase.

 

Thank you!
