First ever Barclays auto increase

I just received the first auto increase ever from Barclays. I did a 8k balance transfer last year. I paid it off before statement closing this week. New statement dropped and my credit limit went from 22k to 26.3k. I got the card in 2015. Thought I would share the experience. I didn’t even think they gave auto CLIs because I have NEVER received one.

Re: First ever Barclays auto increase

Yes, they sure do. For some profiles those auto-CLIs can occur in less than a year from account opening to several years later, like in your case.

Nevertheless, congrats on the auto-CLI.

Congrats on the CLI! Here's to hoping I can get an auto CLI eventually.

Re: First ever Barclays auto increase

FinStar,  Barclay and Chase seem to be the ones that never auto increase for me. I've had Chase since 2010 and I think they may have done a small one at one point. I took one hard pull CLI on Barclay about a year or so after I got it. But, I said I would never do that again. I just waited to see if they ever did it on their own. They took their sweet time that's for sure. It was a pleasant surprise.

Re: First ever Barclays auto increase

Barclay's and CLi's are like playing games with thin air. Most cases it is no fun but in a very few cases it is very entertaining. Most people do not show a need for a CLI at Barclay's for any number of reasons and as a result they never get one. A very select few though are misjudges by Barclay's and as a result get CLi's by banker's choice. This is all considering though how conservative Barclay's is already with SL's and approvals.

Re: First ever Barclays auto increase

@Dinosaur yes it really does. I realize I probably didn’t state that as I should have in my initial post. I just have never figured out what the key was to make them want to do an auto CLI, so I thought they had maybe suspended them. I have always been quite responsible with the account. I do not seek credit unless I have a valid reason (I freeze all my reports to resist any temptation to app, or at least make it have to be a conscious decision that’s thought through). I used the card regularly. It was just a pleasant surprise. And thank you so much. Since I recovered on my scores many years ago I have learned a lot up here. This forum has helped me to get them to where they are now.
