Sync CLI request

So, my Belk card has the annoying limit of $2900. I requested an increase of $100 ($3000 total) to fix this obviously egregious error they have made with my CL, and was declined. To be fair, my account is just about 3 months old. Could that be why it was declined?

 

On the flip side, I was doing the same thing with Discover to get rid of another oddly rounded CL, and they approved me for much more than expected. I really just wanted $800, so I backed it down a bit to make the final CL have 3 zeroes instead of 2.

 

Up next, probably in a few months as I like to spread these things out, is asking Amex for the princely increase of $600. Wish me luck lol.

I just went through that with Capital One. All I wanted was $600 so I could have my three zeros. Two months in a row, my request was declined due to too little spending. On my third request, they happily offered 3K, and I took $2,600. Smiley Happy

Re: Sync CLI request

Can you elaborate how SYNCB made such an "egregious error" with your CL? Seems like the approval is what counts, no?

Also, it appears your Belk account hasn't been opened long enough to be considered for the CLI, but you can always reach Credit Solutions at the next go-round.

That was mostly intended as a sort of joke. I feel like the SL is pretty generous for a store card. It just annoys me that it is $2900....I mean, c'mon, would it kill them to just go $3000? Heck, I'll take a CLD to $2000 if it rounds things out lol.

Re: Sync CLI request

Optionally, you could take a voluntary CLD if it's of great importance to have things set a certain way since SYNCB can be flexible that way, but it would be pointless just due to a $100 rounding. Try Credit Solutions next time to see whether you can leverage better results with the CLI and then the world will be right 😊

Waiting a bit longer can only help your CLI chances, as deeper account history is always a good thing.  You'll probably get something like a (say) $1500 CLI, bringing your account to $4400, then you can just call up and ask for a $400 CLD to $4000 if that suits you well.
