I said there must be a mistake hers is double mine. nope, she called they wanted to pull all 3 reports on her. .I said no... put her at 20k and put me at 10k or close the accounts.. the sales lady went back and forth with me and the credit department on the phone. I told her again up mine to 10k and hers to 20k or close them... Sir you owe us 400 dollars. Okay Ill pay that right now CLOSE THEM NOW!!! but....but.. nope CLOSE them now.

Jareds wasn't really worth it anyway. Ben Bridge has much nicer quality stuff. Congrats and see you in the garden.
Which bank is Ben Bridge anyway?

Good for you.
If they aren't going to keep your credit limit where it was they should at least call or write you about it.
I found out last year that I've had 3 different Kays credit lines in the last 10 years. They just keep closing and opening new accounts. I'll never buy another thing from them.
