Auto CLI with Wells Fargo

Hello Everyone!


I have been using this forum to help rebuild my credit.  My current FICO8 scores received through my discover card and USAA are TU - 700 EX - 696. Current baddies: 2 - 90 day lates (from 2014) on a student loan and 1 collection account that updates monthly for $266.  I have 4 CCs total, with a combined utilization currently at 56% (working on paying this down from 98% since Dec 2018).  Today I received a letter in the mail that Wells Fargo increased my CL from 1200 to 2800.  I logged in to check and it was true! It still is my smallest card but I am super excited.  I am working towards getting a home this summer and didn't want to risk a HP trying to increase this card.  This letter was a nice surprise. Thank you everyone in this forum for getting me this far!!

How long did it take from the time you opened your WF card for them to give you some MO MONEY? 


Asking because I have a Propel that I opened in Dec. Thanks! Congratulations again!

Re: Auto CLI with Wells Fargo

I have been a customer with Wells Fargo since 2003, 1 credit line increase granted in 2008 from 500 to 1200, then never again.  I have requested 2x before and denied.  In 2011 I was very upset they weren't showing any love,  I went ahead and closed all my banking accounts with them and started banking with USAA.  The only reason I haven't closed this card is that it is my oldest credit card, has a great APR rate, and I don't want to mess with my AAoA. 


Good Luck with your card!

Re: Auto CLI with Wells Fargo

Congrats on the CLI! Good for you for sticking it out with them. Keep on that luv button for the future!

I’d like to rest
My heavy head tonight
On a bed
of California stars
I’d like to lay my
Weary bones tonight
On a bed
Of California Stars
I love to feel
Your hand touching mine
And tell me why
I must keep working on
Yes I’d give my life to lay my head tonight
On a bed
Of California stars
