USAA CLI

Ok, to start out "YES" I was suppose to be in the garden untill JAN 13.  I have had my USAA Credit card for 8 months and have yet to get a CLI on it, so I decided to message them today and request a line from 1k to 7.5k to match my navfederal c.c. (my score has jumped about 100 points since I got the USAA card, which also let me up my nfcu card from 2k-7.5k).  I requested it today (2pm), how long does it normally take for them to respond/counter offer?  I am headed back into the garden, waitin for JAN and should be in mid 700's!

Dunno - I requested one but I did it over the phone and got instant approval.  Cost me a hard EQ pull, though.

I was approved for a NFCU visa signature (5k) a few months ago and a (2k-7.5k) increase on my Nrewards, was also told that I can request another increase in 6 months.  Has anyone else had this issue with USAA.... 18 months????  Granted at the time I got the card I was high 500's, but now I am almost at 700 and have these other cards.......Well keeping the card, will have to wait untill next year for the increase (keeping it paid off too).

So it sounds like (?) after 18 months, instead of being eligible for an automatic CLI you will instead be eligible for an opportunity for you to request that they review your account to consider it for a CLI.

Re: USAA CLI

correct, but I had read several threads about automatic CLI at the 6 month mark or people requesting CLI.  Maybe mine is a "special" account due to the score I had at the time of applying (maybe like my CAP 1 card) and maybe was flagged for no change for the 18 months...It seems like a long time to have the card before the increase or anything changes.  I really was looking for the CLI to help me in JAN for my next and final cards for a few years (possibly if I needed to recon I could show the usage on 3 cards over 5k for the past 5-8 months).  Well back to the Garden untill JAN for me!

Re: USAA CLI

At the 6 month mark, call customer service.  That's what I did.  But be prepared for HP.
