I have 3 of their accounts not in my siggy. They started my Jcrew out with $300 I was so mad I almost told them to shove it. Within 8 months it was $1200. I still only get 200 CLI at a time with them. But they are around 2600 each now, and that only been 2 years or less. So just be patient I know its hard. But it will pay off, trust me.
Okay, I see the picture clearer now....thanks! You are right, I have to have patience. It's soo darn hard, but I'm going to hang in there.

Just a consideration -- not enough experience/history at current limit refers to usage as well as time, so if you're not showing usage of your current limit, it probably won't matter how much time passes.
True point, but I've been using it...haven't gone a month yet without using it! LOL!! I love that store! LOL! But I have to say, you all have helped me to chill out because I think my expectations were a bit too high. But now reading how they have increaesed all of you some what slowly made me see they are not quick to jump amd BAM give you $1,000...LOL! That's why I love this forum!

I hate when WFNNB does not generate a statement if you prepay. So I always leave something to get a statement. But they still know how much your usage is so I don't think it matters at all w.r.t usage.
I think you need to wait some more. My usage is not high, I shop about every 3 months. I asked for CLI at 13 months and then every 5 or 6 months thereafter. 3 Approvals, no denials.

I'm having this same problem with my Lane Bryant card! They gave me a $100 initial CL, which is ridiculous! I've had the card for a year and they refuse to budge. Though I've used it about 6 times, and only have 4 statements now because they won't generate a statement if you pay it off before the statement cuts.
After my 4th statement with my Avenue card (with a more than decent limit of $750), they auto CLI'd me, so I'm hoping that is what LB will do. Although my 4th statement was just generated today and there still is no increase. Should I patiently wait to see what happens after the 5th statement, or should I request a CLI?
