Hello Scholars,


I have a question...........


If I would like to increase my US Bank secured card CL, do they do a hard pull on CR?  Was wondering this because there is no way to do it online and no

information on their site regarding this..

Re: US Bank Secured card CL increase

I've recently done this and verified with the underwriting dept. You need to send them a letter stating you want to increase your limit and include income amount, housing expenses and the amount you want to increase it along with a cashier's check or money order only. They need to receive the letter on or after your account has been opened for at least 6 months. I called 3 times and everyone confirmed no HP.

Re: US Bank Secured card CL increase

I did the same thing recently to my secured US Bank card. When I inquired, here is the email I received.  I can confirm they do a HP even when you send in a cashiers check for the increase.
