Fidelity/Elan - Email Exclusive offer for CLI

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Long time since I have posted. I received a few weeks back an email from Elan/Fidelity called "Exclusive Offer: Increase your Credit Line - Request Now"


It states I'm eligble for up to a $2k increase. My question is does anyone have experience with this email. It's certainly targeted to me, but I am not going to waste a hard pull for a measly $2k CLI. I have read all the fine print etc. and not sure if it's a hard pull? The fine print states the following: So obviously, always a possibility of a hard pull, but can anyone confirm if they have recieved this email and it turned out to be a soft pull.


Thank you!

If it's been at least 6 months since your last CLI request,  it's likely a SP. None of my Elan CLI requests have ever been a HP.


I have heard they will likely HP if you request a CLI less than 6 months apart or less than 6 months after opening the account.

Re: Fidelity/Elan - Email Exclusive offer for CLI

I'm curious about this question. I've had my Fidelity card for longer than six months and have never requested a CLI. If I go to the "Credit Limit Increase" page, though, it definitely has HP language. Yet it seems everyone is saying that Fidelity/Elan is usually SP?

Discover It: 19.7k
Amex Cash Magnet: 18k
Citi DC: 7.7k
Fidelity Visa: 2k
Apple Card: 1.5k

No, it's not always SP. It can be, but HP is possible, too. 

HP language is always present when requesting CLI, but again, it may result in either.
