CHASE Recon Success! GECRB CLI Success!

Well, I just got the feeling I might be able to work on improving my current cards a tad while waiting to app for Amex BCP in January 2013, so I called CHASE today and requested a CLI.  Initially they increased my Freedom from 500 to 800, and I promptly asked for a recon (I did not want to waste an HP on a 300 increase).  I was transferred to a lady in the lending department.  We went through the normal questions;  gross income, length of self-employment, rent, home ownership, etc.  About 15 minutes while she analyzed and reviewed the account.  I did butter them up a bit and mentioned that the Freedom was my lowest limit card (which is true), and that I had a 4500 limit on my Discover card, and that I run up to 1500 a month on my AMEX.  I got what I requested........3500!  Woohoo.


Two weeks earlier I bumped my Chevron/Texaco Card from 900 to 1500 (it was originally 500).


All set for the rest of the year now.  2-3 more INQ's drop off by the end of 2012 and then it is onto Blue Cash Preferred skies!
