Kind of a two part question;



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



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

1) I got a 1k. It is now at 3k. Then I got another 1k. This one is still at 1k. Robot Indifferent Both are from Amex.

2) 12k from BofA as a result of a 6x credit limit increase. Not asking for more Smiley Happy
