WFNNB Lane Bryant CLI

FINALLY! It wasn't automatic; I had to request it yesterday after paying off this month's statment, so hopefully there isn't a hard inq on any of my reports. But even if there is, it might be worth it only because the $100 CL was driving me crazy. They increased it up to $500, which is plenty. 


Starting Score (07/2011): EQ 706 TU 709

I've had the card for 1 year and 2 months now. They don't issue a statement unless you have a balance, so I only have 5 statements.

Re: WFNNB Lane Bryant CLI

Thanks for replying.  I have a measely $150 limit and we both know that you can't buy but a shirt and fashion jewelry with that.  I guess i will be sitting for awhile since I only had my card for 4 months, I was hoping for a cli @ 6 months.  I can't believe the cli are not automatic.

They started me out at $100 and yes, it was really really frustrating. Especially considering within a few months after getting the LB card I had major bank cards with $5000+ CLs. Once you have 5 statements, I would click the "request increase" button on your online account. 

 

I also have a WFNNB card from Avenue and they auto CLI'd me within 4 statements. Really frustrating that each card seems to have its own rules!
