Very awesome!!! CONGRATS!!!

Make sure you explain to him to be responsible with such a high limit, it can be very easy to get into trouble with.

+1 - my daughter has been approved for cards with high limits, she is 19... We called the card companies and had them lower the CL so she would not get in trouble with them.

Re: USAA approval wow kidding me!

Since few college students have incomes that would require high limits , you might consider giving him the physical forward card and holding on to the others for him. Set up recurring charges for each to keep them active and give the rest to him when he graduates. Keeping the higher limits will help in the long run. Just a thought.

In wallet: Ink Plus 10k, AMEX TE 25k. In bag: CSP 16k, USAA WMC 15k, Hyatt 13k, United MPE 12k, AMEX HHonors 3k. In SD: Cap 1 QS 5k, Discover IT 7k. FICO 08 says my EQ is now 844, was 510 in 2010.

Grats for you but I don't understand why any lender would give a kid a limit that high it is irresponsible from a lending perspective.


Starting Score: EQ 551 TU 548 CK 607on 6/8/12, EX 542(AMEX pull 3/4/12)
Current Score: EQ 710 TU 727 EX 704 CK 719(FAKO-EX 697, EQ 697, TU 697)

As a college student myself, if I was given a 15k limit I'd be ecstatic....and then I would probably call up the company and ask for a CLD.
