DH got approved for Home Depot Card...called them today and it's a $500 TL...it's a start!!
Waiting on Target's response now....Couldn't have done any of it without this forum!!
Congratulations!!! I LOVE my Home Depot card! It's through Citi, and should you ever go over the limit, they don't charge you for it, or ding your credit. They're a bit picky about CLI's though, so if you're considering upping it, wait until you've established about 6 months of history with them, first. Otherwise they may just tell you your account's too new.
Hmm....I had no problem with a CLI with HD. My initial limit was 4500, I asked for 6500 and got it as soon as I activated the card...paid on time for a couple months and they just sent me a letter in the mail saying they up'd it to 8500. I have no other cards with Citi nor have I ever, but I ain't complaining....I have a finished basement now!
I want some flowers and stuff for the patio so I think when we get it we're gonna go do a tiny bit of shopping just so the card shows some activity. Keep it paid down 1-9% and then in October when we move and I have to buy a new washer/dryer we're going to ask for a CLI at that time to charge the appliances. I think it sounds like a pretty good plan Hopefully they will too lol
