What kind of limit is this?

Ok so people will pay their bills in store, they can bring their statement which we can scan. Well obviously the statement says the Limit. I saw someones limit and i must say my OCD would kick in if that was mine. I like all my limits rounded to the nearest 500. 

 

This persons limit was $2001 Yes $2001....whats the extra $1 for is what i want to know. 

Wallet: Chase Freedom, CSP, Discover IT

8/11/14 EQ: 687
9/7/14 TU: 700. All goal cards achieved! :smileyhappy: Now time to go for scores of 750+ which once my debts are paid i think it will be possible :smileyhappy:

Capital One Secured Card when I was approved for it, had a requirement of $49 for $200 of CL. So initially, I sent in an additional $600 which made the Credit Limit to $751 [200+(600-49)]=751. Sorry for the mathematical explanation at 4am.

 

Then to round it up to 1000, i sent back an additional $24 which made my limit to a round $1000.00

 

I am not saying that this is what happened for sure, but this is what happened to me, so it is possible. :smileyhappy:

Thats interesting from both of you. As for Secured Card, no this wasnt a secured card. It was a Sears MC.

They may have asked for a CLI to make a purchase. PayPal smartconnect is (not!) great about doing that. You want to buy a product ask for a CLI and it asks how much more is needed. If approved that's how much is given and not rounded up to the even amount.

My Wallet /US Bank Cash+ Signature $10,000/ Ace US Bank Signature $10,000 / Sam's Mastercard $8000
/ Walmart Mastercard $8000 / Discover IT $5000 / Care Credit $5000
/ Husqvarna $5000 / PayPal SmartConnect $4800 / Cap1 Quicksilver $4000 / Barclay Ring $3550

I agree about the odd number bothering me. I would probably ask for a CLD to $2,000 if it was mine lol.

When I worked retail customer service, our financing bank told us that the 1 at the end meant that we could call for a same day CLI on the day they applied and they'd be instantly approved.
