I know there's a thread going around about highest limits, but they are including growth through CLIs. I was curious what the top end is for starting limits from various issuers.
I know CUs are known for giving out probably the highest limits out of the gate. Cap1 Venture is also known for high SLs. Citi is known for low SLs.
So I guess I'll start. My highest SLs...
Amex EDP $20,000
Chase Freedom $19,800 (though I've seen at least $25K in the approvals forum)
Cap1 QS $10,000
My highest SL ever just came last month, when I was approved for a CSP with $26K. That came with FICOs in the high 700s.
CapOne gave me $30K on their Plat No Hassle Rewards card in 2004, when they were generally known for very low limits that didn't grow. (They are of course now known as giving high limits so in 2017 they reduced my CL to $10K) Considering inflation, that's probably my highest in value. In 2017, I got a $35K CSR. High limits are common with that card.

Yeah, and if I don't get off this site, I'll never get under 5/24 to even apply for the CSR...
USB Alt Reserve: 29k (no cli yet!)
BOA Premium Rewards: 18k
Awww my starting lines aren't as impressive, but this is a good topic change from the usual.
Me Top 3:
24,000 NFCU Flagship Rewards
21,000 BoA Premium Rewards

DW Top 3 (also her last 3 in reverse order):
27,000 Chase Sapphire Preferred
23,700 Amex Delta Gold SkyMiles
23,300 NFCU Platinum
