How often does Comenity Bank do CLI's?

Do they seriously make you wait 12 months for your first CLI?

The first is at the 9th statement, then every 3 months after that. That was with my Gordman's card, but YMMV.

Do they give decent increases?

 

How did you get a Gordmans card, btw?

Re: How often does Comenity Bank do CLI's?

Both of mine (VS & Brylane) waited every bit of 9 months....close to 10 actually. I got mine thru the luv button and they both were increased by 400. Not much but I rarely use them both and I am really just trying to get all limits to at least 1k. VS almost made it....lol

Re: How often does Comenity Bank do CLI's?

I've only had my cards since May on the Maurices and probably June-July on VS.  I have used the Maurices card twice but with a $150 limit I really don't want to use it at all.  You could max that out in one trip to the store.  The VS opened with a $500 limit.  I don't have a VS any where near me so I have yet to use that one.  Thinking about it I hope it doesn't get closed on me for non-use!

Comenity has been funny.

 

I have some Comenity cards that are over 9 months old and I haven't been able to get a CLI on any of them.

 

On the other hand, Until recently, I was able to get CLI's monthly on my J.Crew card. 1st one happened a month after I had gotten it and they were usually $200 a pop.

I actually got the pop-up for J. Crew but I don't shop there so I didn't take it.  It didn't say what the limit was tho either?  I thought that was odd.

Really? Mine said the limit when it popped up for me. That's definitely odd.

Re: How often does Comenity Bank do CLI's?

I read over the whole thing and it didn't say it anywhere.  I'm sure that played a part in why I didn't accept it.  But really I would never shop at that store so I don't need it.
