Re: how high?

Kind of a two part question;



1) What was the lowest credit line that you started off with and how high has it gotten?


My Bank of America Platinum Plus Student Visa started at $500 and is now a BoA Cash Rewards 123 Visa Signature at $5500. 


2) What is your highest limit on just ONE credit card? (Amex or any other charge card don't count!)


My highest limit card is my First National Bank of Omaha Platinum Edition Visa at $19,000.


Discover IT $24K | FNBO Visa $20K | Citi Forward $12.5K | US Bank Cash+ Visa Sig $10K | Priceline/Barclays $10K | Amazon/Chase Visa Sig $8.3k | Citi ThankYou Preferred $6.5K | BoA Cash Rewards 1-2-3 Sig $7.5K | Sallie Mae World MC/Barclays $5K | Capital One Cash Rewards $5K | Commerce Bank $5K | WF Cash Back Visa $3.6K | Amazon/GEMB $2.5K | Younkers/Comenity $2.4K | AMEX BCE $2K Target $1K | AMEX Green

Re: how high?

Got my first CC in 2002 from Capital One.  My oldest account overall, it's sitting at the same CL of $2,000... just like the day I got it.  A true testament to Capital One... :smileylol:


Currently have a United MilagePlus and Discover IT each with $8k CLs and a BofA Visa Platinum with a $4k in addition to two other CCs with lower limits which include my CapOne.  Hoping to never have to open another revolving TL and let these newer cards with larger limits grow with me.  We'll see.

| $8k | | $8k | | $6.5k | | $4k | | $2k | | $500 |

Baseline (5/1/2013) - EX 580 | TU 599 | EQ 599 * Goals - EX 750 | TU 750 | EQ 750
Current (6/10/2013) - EX 719 | TU 722 | EQ 737

Re: how high?

1.) My first card was a BOFA Cash Rewards card that I got with a 700$ limit. I have yet to ask for a CLI (and I really don't intend to at this point.) so I've left it alone. 

2.) Currently, my highest limit is my Chase Freedom at 2,400. 

Bank of America: Cash Rewards.-1,000. 4/25/12 (CLI Increase 6/15/13), Citi: Forward- 3k. 10/27/12 (CLI on 2/8/14, SP). Discover: More- 2k. 10/27/12 (Increase 6/1/14). Amex: PRG- NPSL (closed 12/13/13). 11/24/12. Chase: Freedom. 5/1/13- 2.4k. Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus.-3.6k. 6/15/13. Amex BCE-2k. 12/7/13. Amex SPG-4k.12/8/13. Last App: 1/8/14.
