    Default Who usually gives higher initial cl?

    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.
