called for recon and was told to many past delinquencies.
asked to move limit from the new United $11,600 to open this as the UR points would work better.
rep says we would have to be able to get to an approval before being able to move limit.
I just don't get that.
Yup, those are the most recent UW guidelines - at least from a couple years or so. Unless an approval occurs (however small), that's they only way for CL reallocation. In the past, there was more flexibility to recommend moving things around to open a new card, not so much these days.
I think given they cited past delinquencies, I would be grateful for the United approval as a plus. They're simply not comfortable extending more at this time.
