WFNNB - Express won't budge! - UPDATE!!!!! What a surprise!!!

[ Edited ]

I am so annoyed! I've had my WFNNB Express credit card since January with a $250 CL and they WILL NOT budge on an increase. :smileymad:  I'm like what the heck?! I have perfect payment history with all my credit cards, FICO score is decent, absolutely zero baddies...they are my LOWEST credit limit now that I finally had progress with Macy's.  It's ridiculous.  Not to mention, they do not issue statements when you have a zero balance, so I always pay before the statement cuts, so online it looks as if I've only had 4 statements, but I'm actually the six month mark now.  I tried at 4 months...denied.  Tried again today...denied!  :smileyfrustrated: As much as I love Express clothing...and shop there all the time, I will put this credit card on ice if they don't budge on the CL soon.:smileymad:  Am I being unreasonable...or are they just stingy with CLI's?  Anyone with any experience with WFNNB cards? 

 

Thanks for letting me vent....:smileyvery-happy:

Not enough time at current limit isn't a denial really. That means that with that card there is a time frame that has to be met before the computer will allow a CLI and you haven't met it yet. Some card accounts are different even in the same bank.

CK_Charles_Lover.....That's easy for you to say sitting there with your High Credit Limits...I see your siggy! You have awsome Credit Limits!:smileyhappy: I'm joking with ya!  But yeah,  Hopefully I will pass whatever mark the system has for me soon so I can use the credit card without almost maxing it out.  It's hard to work with $250 at Express....LMBO!:smileyvery-happy:

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.

Re: WFNNB - Express won't budge!

I have an Express account with a $950 limit that I've had for about 9 years. Started at $350, got up to $950 through 3 $200 increases starting last year. The time between increase 2 and 3 was about four months. Never got an auto increase on this account and never thought about getting an increase til I joined this forum. I also have a Victoria's Secret card that has gotten auto CLI throughout the years but the last two I requested with four months in between requests and received $200 increases each time.


Starting Score: EQ 545
Current Score: EQ 694, TU 690, EX 647(Oct 2011), TU08 693
Goal Score: 700 across the board

Re: WFNNB - Express won't budge!

DW has a Lane Bryant card (also WFNNB) and they would not give her an increase for NINE months...

 

...but have given her three CLI's in the last six months...

 

Use the card and be patient.  :smileyhappy:

Re: WFNNB - Express won't budge!

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.
