This Friday, will be my 61st day with my delta gold card, and my green card. I ran over a thousand thru the card in the first 45 days or so, earning 30K in skymiles, and always paid the card off in full, and have continued to keep the balance at zero.
The card closed with a dollar credit, and is currently -36.45 cause I overpaid knowing i'd have some charges coming thru, and I didnt want them to post and carry over a balance.
I am going to go for a 3x increase, which would be 3000.00, as I started with a 1,000 limit.
All of my other cards have larger limits, chase, and citi minimum 2k.
I need to order 2 plane tickets this Friday for a wedding I have to goto in FL. Should I order the tickets pre-credit limit increase attempt, or should I ask for the increase, and then order the tickets? with my skymiles credit, (1 free ticket) and the ticket for my fiancee' it'll be roughly 275 bucks, or almost 30% of my credit limit.
will ordering the ticket help/hurt my chances of getting the increase? thanks, Bill.
my thought would be to order the tickets on a wens/thurs and then ask for the limit on Fri, as they'd might look at it internally that I just bought 2 tickets thru delta, and i'd need available spending ability for the trip....
