Re: What's your highest CL and who is the CCC?

My two largest CL are B of A. $46,000 and $58,000. Chase $33,500 and $20,000. Both Chase accounts now RJed and will both have low interest BT soon as I have a couple 0% BTs that just expired.

 

My Amex was $82,000 before they started whacking it down. When they got to $11,000 I cancelled it since it had an AF of $250.

 

Yes, I have too much CC debt but am stuck due to massive income decrease and a psycho ex that ran stuff up and caused expenses that forced me to charge other stuff. I now owe less than $90,000 total but it is getting harder to keep the average interest under 5% with the decrease in BT offers.

What's your highest CU card?

 

 


Highest was obtained by combining a Visa and MC from NFCU so 40K in total. Penfed at 30K is my highest current line. NFCU is now 25K.

40K was too high for FICO to pick up so I reduced the credit limit. I am now down to 4 major credit cards lowest limit Chase 10K.

So the cutoff is somewhere between $30K and $40K. I need to know since Her Ladyship is at $30K with PenFed and will be getting more offers. Probably better for her to take another card next time.

Re: What's your highest CL and who is the CCC?

I only seen one example of a "cutoff".

 

My BofA at $46,000 reports correctly.

 

I am not sure my Amex at $82,000 reported correctly since they whacked that in half in mid 2008. I don't have any saved reports that old to look at where the limit was still $82,000. I have saved reports from all three CRA showing $41,000 so know all three report at least that.

 

My BofA T $58,000 reports $50,000 CL on my current EQ FICO and my current EX Score Power.

 

I therefore assume there IS a cutoff at $50,000.

Wow, these are some serious CL's! Before credit trouble I had a Discover $1300. Now my highest CL is Walmart $600. But I look forward to growing my CC's.

Personally, I would like a CC with a CL that did not factor into utilization, IF it had a nice APR for those times I chose to do something that was not PIF.  For business, I have Biz CC or LOC that is not personally reporting.

 

Addison Avenue would be a nice place to have a $40k CL at 5.24% standard APR.

Well the 40K wasn't picked up. The Penfed 30K is being picked up. Obviously the score ding for no accounts with a balance is minor but I don't need a card with a 40K limit. With only 4 lines I feel safe from any AA now. Each card is used at least every other month and the usage is decent.

Not sure I am understanding. Do you guys mean if the CL does not factor into util this means the balance on the card does not either? So its like a hidden TL?
