Good for you.  I am going to combine mine eventually as well.
I would really like to purchase a new Millineum Falcon with my WAMU (oops Chase card)!!!! But first I need a decent credit limit.

Re: Took a Chance and it worked

I recently combined 2 CapOne cards also, for a $1000 total CL.  So this thread made me want to try - I did the request through their automated system, and the recording said I have a card that is not eligible for customer initiated CLIs, but will be reviewed periodically for auto-CLIs.  Smiley Sad
 
Oh well...

Lisa, sorry - I just now saw this post. They did not do a hard OR soft pull when I combined the 2 cards or when I requested the CLI through the automated phone system.
