What is FNBO CLI schedule?

Anybody had a CLI from First National Bank of Omaha credit card. I have a credit card with them and I am wondering what's their schedule for considering a CLI?

Re: What is FNBO CLI schedule?

From the research I've done on 'em, every 4 months, starting from the activation date. You would have to call them and ask if you're pre-approved for a CLI, if yes then you go ahead with it, it will be a SP. If you request it online I hear it's a higher chance of it being a HP. I hope that answers your question.

 

May I ask how did you recieve the card? Did you apply online or did you get a preapproval in the mail from them?

Cap One Platinum MC $2.5k CL (08/12)
Citi Forward Student Visa Card $1.5k CL (09/12)
Express NEXT Card $0.25k CL (02/13), Jcrew CC $0.7k CL(02/13)
AMEX PRG NPSL (03/13), AMEX Gold Delta Skymiles 2k (03/13)
Walmart Credit Card $1.5k (03/13)
TU: 687 FICO (3/13) | EX: 692 Lender Pull (3/13) | EQ: 678 (4/1/13)

WarJar101 it was an invitation. Apparently the sent the first inviatation to my previous address. I applied when I received he inviation packet at my current address.

Although, theres a lot of bickering about them on the interne. I have been liking their services and perks.

The only perk I know from them is that it's possible to get SP CLIs. Any perks/services that stands out to you in particular?

All my trnx with them so far have been hassle free. 2% on gas and 1% on everything(the only other 1% on everything i know is wells, other cards have difficult categorization of payment vs purchase etc). In MHO I think they are sort of lender which love you if you do your task...always pay in full...before time.

I like their initial CL that they started me with as well.

Current Score: April 2013 - DCU-722; WM-782; CKarma-749; Exp-780

Re: What is FNBO CLI schedule?

I just wanted to add that I just followed the process described by warjar and it worked like a charm.  I called, asked the agent if I prequalified for a CLI.  She asked me for my monthly housing payment (rent or mortgage) and my monthly income.  She entered it in the system and in about a second she told me I was prequalified for a $2,000 CLI, which I accepted and she made effective immediately.  It was a soft pull. That took my CL from $3,750 to $5,750.  I've had the card since 2011.  My initial CL was $2,750 and I received an auto CLI to $3,750 about one year later.  There are a lot of people making negative comments about FNBO but in my opinion it's a reaction to their extremely conservative policies.  I have always received excellent service from them and their agents are extremely nice and friendly people (from Nebraska!).
