Can you tell us what you say, how often you call, and who you call for these SP CLI? I tried on my NRA business visa about a month ago and the initial rep transferred me to a different department who then said any CLI is a HP so I didn't move forward with it.


You just call the number on the back of the card and tell the rep that you want to see if you have any SP cli offers on your account.  For me I was getting them every 4 months.  This time though it was only 3 months on 3 of my 5 accounts.  The other two I have to wait.  Also, they will check for SP and if no go then they will tell you it could be submitted for a HP cli request


So could it be that the rep I spoke with shouldn't have transferred my call to a different department? It sounds like the frontline reps processed the request for you?

When I call it goes through the options and I select "more options" and then select increase credit line.  Sometimes the frontline reps dont know what to do.  I've had them tell me that I have to wait 6 months between cli request.  I know that's not the case.

That's spot on. I knew I called a month too early but being impatient and since I had them on the line in an unrelated matter I gave it a shot. She straightway said it would need to be a HP so I declined.

 

I just have to wait (I guess) until my 4th statement cuts later this same month of October, and then maybe that will change.

 

My EX is losing INQ's like crazy and after the first of November when Compass Bank's INQ drops too, I only have (4) INQ's.

Saw that Woodyman was approved for mlife rewards, with a nice limit by the way.  Decided to give FNBO a call one month early on 3 of my 5 accounts to see if any cli's were available.  They didn't dissappoint:

 

Overstock Mastercard   $11,500 to $14,000

Rakuten Mastercard  $9,500 to $12,000

Sun Country Visa  $15,000 to $17,500

 

I think I'll do a little research and go for card number 6


Congrats! They have been giving you exactly $2500 per card the last couple of rounds if I remember.

Thats a pretty sweet deal. You'll be bumping against your Aeroplan limit before too longSmiley Wink

 

 


Thanks.  And don't know if you know or not, FNBO will let you combine limts.  You just need to have the card that you want to combine at a zero balance.  If I were to combine all my FNBO cards into one I would have a massive limit of $63,200.


I did NOT know that! Evil plans are now swirling about in my head! 12 months from now, I WILL have another huge limit card! Sweeet!
