Your CLIs are the BIGGEST percentages that I can recall during my time with the FORUMS!!!



Dude I have been underestimating my potential for years, now I know what I can get and I’m getting it! 🤪

And it all started with a $30K Savor approval 😂 

Well to be honest it ALL started with me getting a pop up preapproval offer from Bank of America for the cash rewards card back in October, when they gave me $14,000 I thought that was insane 🤣 and then the binge started... what should I do with my runt of the litter? My new $500 maurices capital one store card? When should I ask for an increase on that?

Cap is much stricter than other issuers... I don’t know how they are with store cards but I wouldn’t ask before 6 months. 


Unless you really use the card (I’ve never heard of the store so I don’t know what utility the card offers), I would probably SD it.

Congrats on the monster CLI !


I have the basic VISA and have been contemplating asking for a CLI.  Did you have to state the limit you wanted, or just asked for the CLI and they came back with the amounts?

She said her new system doesn’t take asks, the system automatically calculates the highest possible limit for you and gives you that, they don’t try to low ball people anymore and deal with counter offers 🤩 their highest available for any credit card is $40,000 I believe. They ask all the normal income, housing etc. and pull from TransUnion only. I think it’s definitely worth it! Call them now, it’ll take about 15 minutes. I’ve been on a spree with everything the past few months and have accomplished a lot so I don’t mind having one more inquiry drop off with all the rest in two years. I’ll be getting a new Lexus then 🥳

Thanks for the info.


I called them today, and once I got to the proper phone desk, they did the verification then HP and came back with a nice increase. $15,000 (original limit which was something of a guessing request when I opened the card in 2015) now increased to $40,000. They also have a promo BT going on now, so will be moving some items over here to pay them down over the next 12 months.

This makes it easier to close a number of other accounts as I do some cutting of card count, including my last BofA account, $43k of limit going away when I close it by the end of the month.
