Last week I accepted a preapproved credit card offer from PenFed. Instead of opening a new card account, I applied the offered amount to my existing Platinum Cash Visa.


Old CL     30,000

New CL   50,000

HOLY CRAP! That's insane. Be careful though because I think you are right at the level where FICO starts to ignore it because it thinks it's a HELOC. You may want to ask for a CLD just to be safe.


Of course you can keep it and use the hell out of it since your UTIL won't be factored in.

Whats the limit for consideration with FICO?
