I honestly wish I knew how much my limits were at this point. I think my total is somewhere around $300k? I have so many cards in my SD though that I could definitely be off.
A bit off-topic but related to the discussion of super high limits-- I have always wondered -- how many people out there use a carefully executed strategy to keep growing their total credit card limits to insane levels for some time (e.g. 3-4 years) while continuing to borrow and spend.
Essentially, someone grows their credit limit to let's say $1M+ over 3-4 years using BTs while still spending $200-300K along the way from the newly acquired credit limits. Thus, technically still maintaining about 30% utilization and a perfect credit (surely, with enough research one can find enough inquiry and new account insensitive credit card issuers to accomplish this).
How prevalent is this at that super high level (i.e. $1M+ credit limits)?
My Cards with limits (Oct 2018)
Amex Everyday Card $15,000
Amex Magnet Cash Card $1,000
Discover Chrome $13,900
BPPR Visa Icon $600
Total CL: $30,500
Limits are in my signature.
@seattlecredit08 it's pretty common. It's called pyramiding debt, a common PenFed denial reason, hence the common myFICO phrase "PenFed said I walk like an Egyptian."
My CL limits across my card ranges from $500 to $5000 with the total CL to $7100, and my credit history is 1.5 years not involving AU's. Someday it'll grow
(except my Cap1 CC, which I'm expecting to be stuck at $600 forever lol)
I have 5 cards and it totals to $1350. I just restarted building credit.
I only plan to max out/pay my Capital one. The rest I dont care to much if they grow. (store cards)
How long on average did it take to get the higher limits?
