These HSBC cards upset me to no end  They gave me a $20 increase per card about 6 months back and I take that as just an insult.


Now that's just an insult.I also have had my B.B.card for 1 yr with no CLI.There is no annual fee on my card so its not that hard for me to hold on to it for a little longer for added history..

Run it up to close to the max during the month and then PIF before the statement cuts.  Next month ask for a CLI  They like to see lots of usage.
