I don't have it any more. I was in real estate business during booming years and I made some good $$$. When the party was over I knew this credit limit was not sustainable, so I called them and closed it.

@ Platinum: Not sustainable how? What would it hurt to keep it open unless you were worried that you'd use that full credit limit?

I quit real estate and had no income for while. I knew if they call and ask for the verification of income that I would not be able to satisfy their criteria to keep such large credit limit so I decided to close it. I kept some other cards at much lower and more realistic limit.

Re: What's your highest Credit Card limit?

@ Platinum: With such a high credit limit, did they do income verification often? I didn't know they did that once you had the card and the CL. Thought that was only when apping or requesting CLI.

Creditdreamer,
They did once when I was able to prove it. I did not feel like I should wait until they ask again.
