Who usually gives higher initial cl?

Postby lexrj » Thu Mar 07, 2013 5:46 pm

I have less than 2yrs of credit history and I need a no foreign transaction fee card with the highest initial limit possible:

a)Chase Sapphire Pref.
b)Boa Travel Rewards
c)Barclays Arrival
d)CapOne Venture
e)Other

my highest CL is $6K on Amex BCP, my only other card is a CrapOne $750.

go for the bank of america travel rewards. I doubt you would be able to get a CSP since its a Visa signature with your current credit profile. the BofA card should be no problem
Amex Zync - NPSL (Cleared up to 25k)
Amex BCE - 12000 limit
Amex BCP - 4200 limit
FIA Rewards Amex- 3500 limit

Chase Slate - 2000 Limit

That's an awesome starting limit from Chase.

I was going to tell you don't count on Barclay's to give a decent starting limit.
