Re: what's the highest INSTANT APPROVAL CL u ever received?

[ Edited ]

OP, I think that at some point, it would be great if you would consider doing a final summary of the replies (Example #1 --highest instant CL ever reported, all CC companies inclusive; Example #2--highest CL ever given (as far as we can determine) by each of the major CC companies such as Chase, Discover, AMEX; Example #3--highest CL by each of the major credit unions such as PenFed, NFCU; Example #4--highest CL product offered by a given company, such as Chase Sapphire = highest instant CL offered, as compared to their Freedom or Amazon products)


Yes, I am a nerd, I love stats, and I've been enjoying this thread, but couldn't resist making a suggestion!

All 3 bureaus (per Amex CreditSecure FAKO) are still 748 (as of 12/19/13). Cards: Discover It, $12,100, Chase Freedom $3,300, Chase Amazon $1,500, Walmart store $11,000, AMEX Zync NPSL, Costco Amex $14,700. US. Bank Cash +, $5,000. AMEX SPG $6,000, PenFed Plat. Cash Rewards $17,500, PenFed P-LOC $10,000, Citi Forward $5,100, Chase Slate $5,000, Old Navy, $2,200.
