The thread you had typed on was over 5 years old. I took your post and moved it here, keeping everything as it was but just changing the heading. If you want to change it just click on the options to the right and click "Edit Reply".
I figured I'd let the gurus here give you their words of wisdom.

+1 the approval isnt that difficult, but the getting cli does require HP
Woah! $5,200 is very good. Congrats!
I just got a 5200cl through website the key is to put in a very high procedure amount they typically do 25/35% of that as your CL based on your fico they pulled TU on me in Ohio I'm 671..2%util..several good TL but still 6 old PD baddies hope this helps
EEEK so if my procedure is around $6k, I should request about $20k...
May I ask what you requested, when you were given $5200?
I asked for $5000 yesterday and I got it instantly. Wished I would have asked for more.
My EQ score is 670 but my TU is 753 Vantage and they pulled TU. It also said on the sheet that if I have an immediate need for a higher CL that I could contact my provider and they could inquire whether I would qualify for a CLI. The sheet that I printed out stated that the card would arrive in 7 - 10 days and if I wished to use my account sooner I could print out the current page and take it to the provider with 2 forms of ID.
I have 1% utilization.
I have had this card for little over a year. Started at $5000 initally and I am now at $19,800 if you can believe it LOL. I was looking into getting a boob job and asked for $20k when I asked for a CLI and got increased to $19k. I was really surprised at that!!
