Whoo Hooo... NFCU CLI on Platinum Card

My husband had a Platinum Card with a $4k limit.   With his permission, I requested a CLI to $7500.00..  I had to explain to him that you always want to ask for CLIs when you don't really need them Smiley Wink

 

 

Here is the message:

Approved Credit Line:$7,500.00
 
Your account will now reflect the new credit line and will be available for immediate use.

My husband is rebuilding... his current scores are in the 660  range.   He is AU on my Discover, Chase, and Amex accounts... 

This credit card is the only tradeline that he has as an individual.

 

We were accepted for a 45k auto loan which will be a joint account at 1.79% interest...   so he will have 2 tradelines by next year.

 

Baddies are foreclosure in early 2010,  no deficiency balance. My husband lost his job, this was before I met him.

Citi CC Chargeoff in 2010, settled with them while it was in internal collections...  he didn't know about this account, the ex wife applied for it using his information and bought her boyfriend a motorcycle.

 

He has many paid in full, never late accounts, but he has these two that are bad.

I wanted it to be a SP instead of a HP...   plus, the goal was to get above the 5k mark just in case he ever wanted to upgrade to siggy.

 

We really didn't "need" more,  as I've got a 22k line and a 15k line with them already.  And I didn't want to spook them because we've got an auto loan that we are going to be taking out with them in Dec.

 

4k > 7.5k is nothing to sneeze at Smiley Happy

 

He can go for double digits in another 6 months.   This account has been open for about 6 months.

Congrats!  You are so lucky!  I have never gotten instant approval on any of my CLI requests, so now I just sit and wait for the auto-CLI's.  Havent seen one lately though, seem to be stuck at $30k. But congrats again to everyone getting instant!  I think those are hard pull free too!
