I just got approved 6/1/19 for AmEx BCE with 10k SL I almost passed out when I saw that! 17 months into credit rebuild... I never had bankruptcy but I had bad credit most of my adult life, and now it seems on on the right track. Good luck
I have yet to get a card out of the box with 10k, but my first card that ended up over 10k was Miss Discover and that card didn't really take all that long... My second card that ended up over 10K was Amex, but I got a counteroffer for the 3x thing.. My first card over 5k was Chase but none of my other chase cards has grown, or gone anywhere since obtaining them.. Biggest surprise was an autocli from Citi that brings the card just shy of 10k...
Usually most of my cards need to be manually watered and fed to get up to 10k or more
Discover was my first (so far) 10k sl. next highest was 8500. AAOA 3 yrs. uti- <9%. dti- <30%. fico8's 680's across all bureaus.
Just got Mine last week and came from BBVA Compass Bank (10,600). Applied last month for the CSP and only got approved for 5,000. Before that, I only had 2,800 across 3 cards.
I had a really thin profile when I got my first 10K limit. I had a Cap One secured Platnimum $500 CL, a Cap One QS with a $5,300 limit, and was AU on a Lowe's card with a $8900 CL. I had 2 - 120 day lates, and 2 - 30 Day lates on each report at the time.
In Feb 18 went on a mini spree and one of the cards I apped for was a Disco and I got a $11,500 limit. I was shocked at that CL. In that spree I also got a Amazon Prime Visa/$8500 CL, Citi DC $7900 CL and BCE/$6000. If I remember correctly the Disco was the 2nd card I apped for after the Chase Amazon card.
In Feb 19 I went on another mini spree by this time the 120 days lates have dropped from my CR. I piced up Uber Visa/$10K CL, US Bank Cash+ $20K CL, and Ducks Unlimited Visa / $5700 CL. I was really shocked by the US Bank CL after hearing about how very well qualified people were getting $500 limits.
I also added a new auto loan in Feb 19. And in March I found myself in need of a 0% offer so I apped for a Amex Cash Magnet. I was approved but only for a $2000 limit. From that approval I can say I think for at least a year I have all the credit I am going to get. Luckly I was able to move limit form my BCE to the Cash Manget to be able to do what I needed with the 0% offer.
Honestly I can't explain the Disco or the US Bank starting limits. I never would have thought I would get SL like that.
My CSR was the first SL over 10k+ at $ 14.6k. Followed by Bonvoy at $ 23,200 and most recently AMEX CM at $ 24,500 SL.
All my other cards that are over 10k were via CLI
I guess if we're counting highest intiial approval limit I would go with CSP @ $25.9K 12/2017. Runner up... Uber at 25K after a quick call to an analyst 4/2019 and Regions @ 21K just off the app approval 3/2019.
Banks like Discover watch your other cards to determine what limit they gonna give you. I took out 6450 revolving with Lending club to finance some dental work and that’s how I got my 10k discover after only maxing out at 3k with bank credit cards before.
