CLIs soft pulls, how?

Postby lexrj » Thu Jan 31, 2013 8:57 pm

for AMEX you can get CLIs soft pulls every 6 months through your online account, I was wondering how does it work for Chase cards and other cards.

It works the same way for Citi and Comenity.. You request a certain amount, if its more then they want to give you they may counter offer it with a lower amount for a soft pull or if you want to push for the original amount you can go ahead and let them do a hard pull. (Citibank denied me originally online for my requested increase from $1800.00 to 4k, and then after calling and giving them permission to do a hard pull they gave me the 4k. The funny thing is that a hard pull never showed up from Equifax, Experian, or Transunion. I guess I got lucky).

Bank of America's website used to allow you to apply for CLI without a hardpull since all you did was input your income, rent/mortgage, occupation and desired increase. Now however that has changed, same format and system but they def do a hard pull, at least i got twice my current limit for the hard pull but still sucks.

I got a CLI from Bank of America last month and I didn't get a hard pull. I did call them directly about it and didn't use the web interface, for what it's worth.

In my experience, Chase is *always* a hard pull. On rare, rare occasion I have heard stories of people requesting a CLI by phone and stating strongly they only want it to be considered via soft pull and it worked. But this is too few and far between. I always assume HP with Chase.
