Re: score has sky rocketed.. what now?

Chase wants to see rev history not score. You are certainly free to try again to recon but if its been more than a month it will be another H P.

Your scores are doing good.  You need some gardening time.  This time last year, I had $0 revolving accounts.  I got a Walmart card then a Lowes card, both low limits and let them garden for a bit.  Then I got a Barclays NFL card a couple months later.  I let them "ferment" for awhile, then the offers came pouring in.  I'm sitting at around $85K right now in CLs.  Just give it some time and garden your CR well.

If you are looking for higher limits, have you considered a GE card?  I personally am a huge fan of the Paypal card.  It has pretty decent rewards and is an easy card to get.  Within a year, I went from a $2k starting limit, to a $10k limit, and i'm due up for another CLI this coming month.  Did the math, and if I do cash back, gas is 2.5% cash back.  if I get their special of the month gift card, its 3% cash back.
