What do you mean stingy? I see quite a few people on here and other forums with Discover limits of anywhere from $5k to $16k. A lot of people have over $10k from what I've seen. Or do they just have a high income?
I will use the card for whatever, and the Chase Trifecta was recently brought to my attention and it seems like a good option. What does everyone think?
I was referencing the blue cash preferred or the blue cash card. It gets you cash back on things you use alot, plus it doesn't hurt your AAOA.
I only have 5k total between two Discover cards. I will admit that I have a total of 50K amongst my other cards though But, to prove my point, I was told the other day that the recommended limit for my Blue Cash preferred that I just apped and was approved for was 12,500. That amount is in spite of my high available credit. I would have to beg discover for another 1k.
