I've finally hit a milestone!!!

I have to thank all you guys on the forum for all of your help and inspiration to go beyond that level I'd never thought I would reach. I decided to go and do a CLI on my Delta Gold and they INCREASED it to $12000. This is the first time I've stepped into the 5 digit range ever. Seems like yesterday that I had a $700 Wells Fargo card starting over and now I'm in a totally different league.
Wells Fargo Platinum 2.100 (5/2011-cld 7/12/14)
AmEx Platinum (6/12)
Barclays Apple (6/12)
AMEX Gold Delta (5/13)
Marriott Rewards (7/14)

My credit score :cool:
EQ: unknown
EX: 762
TU: 752

That's awesome and based on your collection of cards there, it only took about a little over a year to make that happen. Congratulations. And how long did it take you to get a CLI on the Wells Fargo card that you closed? I have a college cash back card with them that's also 700 dollars right now. It was one of the first cards I ever wanted but I think in the long term if that card doesn't grow or I get a way better card to replace it (and likewise get a substantial CLI on a non Amex card), it's going in the sockdrawer along with my Chevron card as well.
Macy's TLs (21k), Lowes (17k), CSP (10k), Sam's Club (10k), Nordstrom (5k), AARP (4.2k), Freedom (3k), Discover (1.5k), Quicksilver (2k), BoA (3k), Barclaycard Arrival (2.5k), Amazon Store (6k), Paypal (4.9k), Sam's Club MC (3.6k), Walmart MC (1.2k)

IIRC I've only asked them for a CLI only once. They gave me a auto-CLI to 1400 after several months then I asked for another one about a year after that and was disappointed that I only had 2100. With my Barclay I started off with 2000 then they auto-CLI me TWICE first for 3000 then for 6000. I tried to CLI a couple weeks ago but they decline due to the fact that I haven't really used the card much (which is true). Wells Fargo hasn't really grown with me nor was I really happy with their since their takeover of Wachovia (the original bank I was with).

Nonetheless for right now I pretty content with the cards I have and their limits. But if you don't mind I have to go burn down my garden.
