The online form now seems to always say: "Please note we may need to access your credit report when considering your request. By submitting this request, you grant us permission to do so."
I called in (this is on a Comenity Ikea Visa) and did the robo credit line increase. The first response is "we'd like to use your credit bureau information, is that ok" ... I answered "NO" and it came back "would you like me to try without using your credit bureau info" and I answered the income question, and requested limit (I asked for 10k->15k)... it came back with a counter of 13k.
No, I'm DEFINITELY not planning on spending that at Ikea, but I just got a BT offer that's beyond amazing - 0% until 9/20 with $0 fee, so now I have a little more breathing room to use it
I got the Comenity UltaMastercard (sp) the next day when I called in they HP'd the crapola out of me. It was an SCT and I blew it by calling in and forgetting to LOCK my reports....never again.
So glad you all mentioned LOCKING reports.
That is the only reason i would want a Comenity Visa, as @MJ-san has learned, they seem to be only ones offering 0% Bt offers with 0% transfer. Thats killer
Yeah, that's what I'm wanting. Got the pop ups on SG and WS. No TR and that's the one I'd actually want and have some use for outside of just having for BT offers. Wonder if the other 2 popping up are a good sign that the TR would be approved or if the UW is a lot more strict and that's why it isn't popping up.
Been thinking of apping SG , actually did weeks ago but my reports were locked and they want Eq. Only thing holding me back is i just need to take a breather for my new cards to settle
Yeah. I ended up getting the pop up when I hopped on TR after I posted and finger got itchy and figured best to try to get now and build it up, just in case I ever do wanna take advantage of one of the offers. 7-10 day message. But, thinking it's verification.
