gas promotion = credit increase

Postby catsartcox » Wed Jun 05, 2013 4:08 pm

I though I would tell you guys about this. As i was successful using there promotion so ask for a increase sooner then allowed.

Two months ago on my discover card I went from 500-700. I called them and the moved it up too 1200. Today I learned about their 5% cash back deal on gas starting in a few months. So I called them and told them I planed to use my citi card for my road trip this july but it would be nice to use this for it instead.

My Citi card CL is 2500. I told them that I would not be happy putting 700$ worth of gas on a card with only a 1100 limit. That would hurt my ratio and all.

She transferred me to a specialist and her I talked for a few minutes about my trip and my job. She then came back and said she was happy to move my cards limit up to 2500.

Doing pretty good...

I am trying pretty damn hard to play this credit game correctly. I want to be able to earn every banks respect. So down the road the would do what I ask with out any trouble. Cars, houses and all.

Yeah the 500-700 was automatic. After I got the e-mail I called them and they gave me a little more bringing it up to 1100. (It is 1100, sorry for the typo in the first post.)
