knowing credit line before approval?

A follow up to my recent posting on why you use credit cards.

How can we find out our CL in approved ...before risking our highly precious HP?

You can't due to the fact you'll never know the lenders algorithm and all that factors into it:smileysurprised:

Re: knowing credit line before approval?

Thats sad. And unfair.

Consumers should know what we are buying before spending our HPs.

The creditors have a major advantage in suppressing everyones scores this way.

Someone here recently received $7100 CLI from Chase just by calling them back after receiving SM that they will do SP $7100. The amount of the increase was revealed in advance to him/ her and this is honestly the first time I hear something like that. Sometime the creditor will increase your CL for the amount of BT.

 

New accounts ??? No way to know in advance. Nice try. :smileyhappy:

I saw that thread last night but and this is just IMHO 

I questioned the theory as its the first i've ever seen and may just have been an inexperiened CSR saying that

Because we all know Chase will HP for a $500 CLI's and some still end in denial

You can't find out your CL in advance.

 

But you can do some research, and get at least an idea of what's going to happen for a given lender.

 

For example, I got a Cash+ card recently, and one of the things that attracted me to it is the experiences of others in getting high CLs.

 

There are multiple credit card forums out there, along with Google, and you can get an idea of what to expect.

Re: knowing credit line before approval?

I dont want to write off the possibility that the chase cli was legitimate. Amex can do it, so can chase on a case by case perhaps. Although unlikely as many have suggested.

User5387, I am not certain if DD on multiple site can give the answer needed since each cr is different. income is different too. so cl approval is the hidden element that creditors have over us.

Currently, we cant even form a pattern of simple approval based on Inquiries let alone cl approval.

Some people get approved with 20 inquiries while others get denied at 4.
