Re: kays credit increase

Got my Kay's card 12/08, good CL of 6.5K with a hard pull on EQ, my best score at the time of 700.  11 months later, got softed on TU, but no increase.  Called the # for customer service, they said Kay's checks your account status once a year for CLI, but a request would be a hard pull.  I passed.  Spent 3K on no interest purchase when opened, another 300+ a few months later, also no interest.  Never paid a cent in interest, always on time, even paid off one month early to be safe.  I get constant e-mails and mailers.  Haven't spent another dime.  It's in the sock drawer, but DW loves the investment.  Smiley Very Happy 

Starting Score: 500's
Current Score: 773 EQ(DCU), 757 TU(Barclay), 788 EX(Credit.com)
Goal Score:760 X 3

Re: kays credit increase

Thank you for the information. I opened up mines in 08 too My credit limit is 7500. They pulled equifax for me too at the time my equifax score was around 690. I don't really use it. I try to buy something every six months because I don't want it closed for inactivity. I wouldn't want a hard inquiry so i will just wait till they increase the limit on their own. I was just curious how they worked on credit increase.
