Re: any ideas? can't get a card...

If you live overseas, why don't you get credit overseas? then you won't pay international fees on us credit card.

Re: any ideas? can't get a card...

You already ate the hard inquiry - you might as well ask for the card, or anything else you might want for matter. It wont cost you anything more except maybe a few minutes. Be square with them and don't ask for too much too soon. Depending on your income, I would ask for the rewards card with a $5K CL, get a foot in the door, then request a CLI in two months. The CLI request will not cost you another hard inq. That's the program I'm on. So far so good.

I asked for a CLI from PenFed one or two days after getting approved. Didn't even have the card yet. 7500 to 15000. Took about ten minutes on the website, Enough time to log off and then back in.

Re: any ideas? can't get a card...

I got my increase from $5K to $10K within two weeks of my original app. When you app they internally approve you for an amount which may exceed the CL you asked for. They will then grant you a CL = to what you asked for. In that case the CLI is automatic if you are not asking for a total amount of CL in excess of that previously determined internal number. If it does they will probably run you through a few more hoops. Mine increase was available on my card within 72 hours of my asking for it
