Merrill+ CLI

Was at 25k... Asked for 35k and was given it..  Hate when I feel like I left money on the table.  Was an Exp HP BTW.  720 Experian(Btw still old lates and paid CO's 6+ years old on report just for a DP).  Not sure if I want another card with the same HP as the new travel card should be coming out this month, but my AAoA can't handle all this so I will probably be content with the CLI.  Will be tempting knowing can use same HP for 30 days for multiple things though!  For some reason I just like the card even though rewards are meh.  See if I can have enough spend bonuses (obviously not on this card) to get me to X-MAS when hopefully some other offers will be out there.  Never said I could garden, it is a lost cause for me as can be seen.

It can happen.  Just have to ask in a round about way.

Re: Merrill+ CLI

Congrats CC.  I need to hit them up for one on mine.  At $21,600 now but do have another $25K on my two AA cards.  Wonder if they'd give me more on my the Merrill+ card.  Might have to hit that CLI button tomorrow though  I hope that they use EX for me.  Too many on there now and only 2 on my TU (both from BoA)

They've pulled EX the last three times for me (2 cc, 1 auto loan).  Love my Merrill (my highest cli), but I agree about feeling like there's more $ available.  Still, great limit!

Re: Merrill+ CLI

Followed your lead CC.  Asked for $40K and got countered with $34,600 for a CLI of $13K. .  Haven't been with BoA for too long but love them so far. Now I need to decide if I should use the HP to ask for a CLI on one of the 2 AA cards I have with them.

 

'Edit to add that it was a HP on TU.  Thankfully
