Re: paying kohls with chase?

thats why i was confused. 

 

my assumption was that they took payment as a sale. 

not sure though. 

i have not gone into the store too ask or anything but it would be a benifit for the 5% cash back and nothing else. 

i pif each month so its not a balance transfer issue. 

 

i was just thrown off that they would allow(or i guess not allow) in this case.

Kohls used to be backed by Chase (around 3 years ago when I got it).  They have since been taken over by Cap 1 (not quite a year ago, and since gave me a CLI LOL).  And no, no one can get a CLI with Kohls right now if anyone is wondering, they're going through a huge rework of their system that's has and will take months, I got my CLI almost moments before that began.  One of the few times (ok, only time) Cap 1 has given me an increase :smileylol:


Not sure if this is still the case. I just got an Auto-CLI from them in the mail today. It hasn't even hit my CR yet so I know it's fresh.

Re: paying kohls with chase?

Yep, its there. 

 

Went from 1,400 to 2,000. Had the card since early 2011.

 

This will probably be a BAD thing for me. Kohl's is a weak spot for me and the missus. :smileyhappy:

 That may have played a part in the CLI   :smileylol:

 

Congrats though!   There is a slim possibility that like mine, it was in the system to be CLI'd and since you didn't call in to ask about one, they just auto'd it.

 

When I called in about mine months ago, the CSR said it was already approved to get a CLI to 1k (was at 300), no SP or HP involved, just that I inquired.  That's why I'm wondering if yours was there waiting to be asked for, but when you didn't, it just clicked over (you are a good customer after all lol).  I like Kohls too actually, esp for clearance :smileyvery-happy:  Got my Kohls Charge January of 2009, never a CLI while under Chase.

 

Have to admit, my big, fat, wild shopping spree that nearly filled my trunk, left a highest balance ever reported at about 185 bucks  :smileylol:  99% clothing maybe a pair of sunglasses.  No kidding, 5 huge bags, major seasonal markdown plus my discount.  The receipt said something like "Congratulations, you saved 1546.75 today!"  I should have framed that receipt.  :smileylol:
