Does WaMu typically consistently offer these increases at review time?


HuntingGuy, when did you receive your card???
I would really like to purchase a new Millineum Falcon with my WAMU (oops Chase card)!!!! But first I need a decent credit limit.

I have never got an increase with them.  I don't know if the pull is soft or hard when they evaluate accounts for CLI's.

I received my Visa WaMu through a pre-approved mail offer.

Soft if they do it, if you request it hard.

Re: WaMu CLI!!!

I have a WAMU Visa and in the year that I've had it, only one cli. When I first applied I had very high utlizaton on all my cc's so they started me off with a 2500k limit, now I am up to a 4500k limit, still paltry when considering I have cards with at least 10k limits. The ONLY reason why I hold on to this card is for the FREE FAKO Transunion score. I use it about once a month or once every other month for small purchases.

Well, pFICO, rather. It is definitely a nice little bonus, and for me has been pretty consistent with my FICO.

... Lucky YOU!!! I've had my WAMU Visa Card since May of 2007; I've never received an increase!
The initial limit was $5000. and it's STILL $5000.  I maintain little or no balance on all of my cards; I pay them ahead of time and down to 0-3% utilization each month. 
 
My WAMU card holds my lowest limit.  I have an AMEX Clear & BOA Platnum Plus MasaterCard - BOTH with limits above $15,000. 
 
I read some time ago (on this forum) about people receiving CLI after 6 months - Well, when I didn't get one, I sockdrawered the WAMU card.  I recently used it this month and have paid the balance off (so it will remain active) -
 
I keep the card because I like the receiving the credit score each month. However, I cannot understand why I haven't received a CLI.  (nor why they KEEP sending me those checks two times a month). - All of my FICO scores are well into the 700's.

 
Does someone know the method to their madness?
