Well after reading pages and pages of stuff about the Lowes credit card and the massive increases they have been giving out right after approval I decided to apply online. Got approved for $2,000. Called Credit Solutions (877-379-8173) 10 mins later and they verified my info and then he just asked what amount I was looking for. I'm not going to lie I was a little nervous at first but I remembered everyone saying go BIG and see what they say. So I just said 30k for some home improvements. He put me on hold for 2-3 mins and BAM came back approved 30k. I would've never asked for that much without the great info here. Thanks everyone. They pulled Transunion (766) for me. I was going to wait for a while before applying for this card but I couldn't stop thinking about it.. Lol.
Congratulations! Loved reading your story! I would be nervous too! Thanks so much for sharing. I will apply later in the year for Lowes, since I go so there often. Now, after reading your post and those of other MyFicoers, I have the guts to ask for that grand CLI after account approval.
CSR didn't even counter offer, so I wonder if you left anything on the table by not asking for more.
Either way, 2k to 30k ought to make anybody happy.
