Success...sort of. Approved for my last CC 11/17 I thought it was time to leave the garden to get a complimentary rewards card to fill a gap in my portfolio. No other inquiries. Scores around 800.
Last night I applied for the Marvel Mastercard. I had to verify myself first for some reason and then I was approved for a small limit of 2K.
Others have explained that it's a Synch card and it grows quickly. So I will just use it frequently and PIF. I hope it soars. I did immediately ask for a CLI but was denied.
Took this opportunity to also request a CLI on my Best Buy Visa and my Chase Freedom.
Chase Freedom was sitting at 9K, requested a CLI of 5K, instant approval to 14K. I plan to transfer 4K to my FU which would the. Be at 15.7K.
Best Buy was sitting at 14K. Wanted an even number so I requested an increase of 6K. Initiated online and was told to call in for verification. CSR transferred me to a specialist. The specialist asked me a few questions and said she had to submit it for higher level review because I was asking for such a large limit. After a few minutes came back and I was approved for the 20K limit.
So even though I was only approved 2K on the Marvel I will take this as a win. And if everything went according to plan, my hard pulls were across the 3 bureaus.
CONGRATS on your Approval and the Very Nice CLIs!!!
Well played and only one new account. Congrats.. The marvel should grow big time after a few months and a call to CS in the US should be bumped up to at least 10k without any issue with a TU in the 800 range easily.
That is amazing! 20k Best Buy, and you had to explain why you wanted it. Holy cow! Congratulations!
Wow those perfect CLIs certainly take the sting out of the small Marvel SL. Congrats!!
Congrats on your approval / Monster CLI's !!!!
