Barclays Uber Visa Auto CLI

Woke up this morning to check the Prism app and I see something odd on my Barclays Uber Visa; says available credit is $2100. So I log into the Barclays app and sure enough they increased me from my starting limit of $800 to $2100. Not bad! Just hit the 6 month mark with this card and was thinking about calling to ask for a CLI so this is perfect.

Does anyone know, would this auto CLI preclude me from calling and getting an SP CLI anytime soon?
Kind of have everything I want now, creditwise. Undeliberately gardening until I have some spending to do and find a 100,000 Amex Platinum offer lol

Started my credit journey August 2016, after abstaining from credit for years after some poor financial choices in high school. Started with scores in the 580s. Current scores 11/6/18 - EQ: 754 TU: 757 EX: 743

Re: Barclays Uber Visa Auto CLI

Something similar just happened to me. I'm 6 months in with my Barclays Uber card. SL was $1500, Auto CLI today bumped it only to $1900. Can I call and ask for a recon to bump it up to say, $2500 or $3000?

Re: Barclays Uber Visa Auto CLI

UPDATE: Called backdoor number to ask for recon on CLI. Only if it's a HP. No thanks.

Re: Barclays Uber Visa Auto CLI

I'm hoping for a auto CLI at my 6 months. I have gotten to 90% usage and paid in full with LARGE payments (which credit card holders like). 

 

Barclays advice, Try calling and see if they have any "APR" reduction and they will SP and if there's another CLI available, they will offer it without any HP. See if that works on this card


Cheers,

No other available without an HP. But, I was able to lower my APR by 4 points. Also gained this nuggest: APR reduction can only be considered once every 12 months.

Re: Barclays Uber Visa Auto CLI

There’s some good info in this thread. Thanks, guys. I was just approved yesterday with a low limit and I’m eager to get my card.

Just a general question here. Is the APR reduction permanent or does it revert back to its previous level after a certain time elapses?

Re: Barclays Uber Visa Auto CLI

I believe permanent. I will post again when I get my official letter re. APR reduction in... (all together now!) 7-10 business days. LOL
