Approval Ebates Mastercard

Approval Ebates Mastercard

Hello All,

I applied for ebates Mastercard today and was only approved for $500, I have other accounts nfcu, jcpenney, jiffy lube,etc with higher limits.

I called synchrony bank reconsideration line to reconsider to increase my limit with a sp. No luck.

How long should I wait until I ask for a credit line increase for this card.

I have two synchrony bank accounts

Jcpenney limit $3500
Jiffy lube $6600
Both balances are under 10% as well as my other credit cards.

Please help.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Approval Ebates Mastercard

Congrats on the approval.  eBates is heard of much around these here parts but can be very useful...especially if one pairs it with MR points.  I still have my eBates card.  I don't use it as much anymore these days though but I still give it the occasional swipe to keep it around.

Re: Approval Ebates Mastercard

Congrats on the approval! Generally, 6 months is a good timeframe for asking for a CLI. 

Discover It: 19.7k
Amex ED: 18k
Citi DC: 7.7k
Best Buy Visa: 3k

Grats on your new Ebates card and welcome to the board Smiley Happy

 

If Credit Solutions has declined to increase the limit at this time you will need to use the card and then ask for a CLI after the 4th statement cuts. 6 months would be a better time frame. Sounds like they dont think your current profile can support the increase. If you have derogs I would suggest you work on them and get your utilization down to where only one card reports a small balance to the CRAs each month. Good luck.

Re: Approval Ebates Mastercard

congrats on your approval. The other two Synch. cards you have are store cards. Those wil grow alot quicker then a Synch. visa or M/C. In six months I would imagine you can get an increase to $1000-$1500. After a year of continued use with ontime payments and keeping util. low you should be able to call the backdoor uw number and have it moved up to at least $5000. This is what I have done with them in the past on the Chevron visa, and Old Navy visa. Hope this helps.
