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.  :smileyvery-happy:

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.

Re: kays credit increase

They closed my account once they found out I was unemployed I guess there credit dept called my work and they told them, it's the only line that actually checked into it, I got 20 accounts 6 months after I was unemployed.. It's  not like I wasnt going to pay the bill or anything.. it was my highest limit too $3000
