Auto Apple CLI

Have been requesting and receiving CLI approvals around every 3 months since receiving my card in August 2020, started with a $1,750 limit and most recently grew to $8750 as of November 2021.


Just this month, (mid Feb), I requested and was rejected for the first time, stating that my credit score has dropped substantially based on my credit report dated January 17th. I've had some higher util on a few other cards that I payed down in February but it looked like they were using a January credit report to make the decision. I called the support line, and they told me they usually refresh their internal reports around the 3rd week of the month, so I waited a couple days and tried again. Same rejection with the same date of Jan credit pull.


Decided to hold off and try again in a month or so to wait for things to be updated, and today I received an email from Apple Support saying Good News, Your Apple Card now has a Higher Limit, and they bumped me from $8750 to $12,750. 


Just thought I'd share some data points if helpful to anyone else looks like they might look back at rejections and compare to a newly pulled soft report to auto-check if an increase would have been substantiated.
