Synchrony Amazon Store Card CLI $10k Instant Approval!

Hey everyone... my 3rd statement just cut with the Synchrony Amazon Store Card, so I requested the CLI on the website and got $10k instant approval!! Super exciting!

 

Here are some data points if they're helpful for others: Starting limit was $2,500.  My current TU score is 754.

 

When I tried the CLI button on the website last month, I got denied with the "not enough experience at current credit limit" letter.

 

Maybe I should have asked for more? I'm wondering how high this limit can go.

 

Interestingly, I also have the PayPal 2% card with Synchrony and I've had 3 statements cut with that card as well, and every time I ask for a CLI, I get the same denial.  I'll try that one after the 4th statement cuts next week.

Congrats on the CLI! My DW has the same card and I had her put in 50K, and they countered on that. I would suggest doing the same next time.

What did they counter with?

 

I actually would prefer to get a higher limit on the PayPal 2% cash back card because I can use that one outside of Amazon.  I tried CLI after last statement (3rd) and got the "not enough experience..." denial so I'm going to try again after the 4th statement next week.

Congrats! CB24 & thank you for the DPs.

I've been told that different co-brands have different UW criteria -- for approval and for CLI -- which might help explain why my Synchrony JC Penny's has a 10K CL and my Lowes has a 35 K CL. Both opened about the same time with similar SL and both luv bottons worn down to a nub, but with quite different results. 

Starting Score: (5/24/2018) -- FICO 08 EXP: 643; FICO 08 TU: 642; FICO 08 EQ: 677
Current Score (3/01/2019): FICO 08 EXP: 714; TU: 744; EQ: 710
2019 Goal Score: 800 across the board

I believe they countered with a 4k bump, from 8K to 12K.

Congrats on the CLI!

 

As for the PayPal, Sync seems to like 5-6 months before they’ll give any luv from the DPs I’ve seen.
