I bought a house then got Lowes card. Only got $1237 limit over 3 months ago and can't get an increase. Scores were 780s when I got card. Had 1 or 2 recent inquiries and no new accounts for over a year.
Your weird limit is because its an internet application.
Have you used the card at least once every month?
Here are the rules for Synchrony:
Use the card once a month to generate a statement.
You do not have to let it report. Just generate the statement. A pack of gum at the register will do it.
After you have generated 4 statements, then call the back door number and ask for $25,000.
The first time around, you will NOT get $25k, but they will counter.
Do not feel as though you have to justify the CLI request. They don't care anyway. It's all a scripted process.
If you receive a CLI, then rinse and repeat the above process.
If you don't receive one then try again after the next statement.
YMMV on this, but this is a tried and true GENERAL set of rules.
Does that apply for paypal extras card too? I guess that is why they are not giving me any CLI. Maybe i need to use the card a but
Yes it does.
I have called in for a CLI on a PayPal card and been denied.
3 days later my 4th statement dropped and I was able to call in and get a 5k CLI
Scores factor in as well. They have levels which are 620-620 +/- , 680. & 700-720 +/-
Some of Synch's cards appear to have limits using the luv button. I was maxed out at $17k with Lowe's and $10k SL for PayPal 2% MC. I got declined too many times to remember until I called Credit Solutions, and got approved for the requested CLI amounts. Lowe's went to $30k and PP 2% MC is now at $25k. TU is 746 from last pull, but it was actually a few points higher every time I got denied before.
Edit: As far as usage, PP 2% was getting some heavy usage for the last 3 months (just over 50% util and PIF), but Lowe's had no new transactions since I maxed it out with a $5k CL. I literally charged $5k and carried a balance for about 15 months out of 24 months no interest, but I never used it again. I'd say 0 balance for the past 4 months with a CL of $17k, and just got it bumped to $30k.
What is the number to call Paypal credit solutions?
I also just edited my last post to add some extra DPs.
I was approved March 23rd. I got the card at the beginning of April. I used it in April but charges were added to May's statement. Since I didn't get a statement for April I've only had 2 statements. I have to wait until September then? It's funny, when I started my credit journey I thought once my wife and I had scores around 800 we would get 5 digit starting limits with the best APRs and it didn't turn out that way at all.
