Here is a quick history of my cards.
1. My first card is a Citi Platinum Select card which is a secured card given to me by my mother back in Summer 2012. The credit line on this card is and always has been $1,500
2. My second card I went for a DiscoverIT earlier this year around February 2013. The credit line on this card is and always has been $500
3. My third card I went for AMEX Everyday in March 2013. The starting credit line given to me was $3,000. I requested 3xCLI this past Wednesday and the CL is now $9,000
Now the AMEX is hands down my favorite card and I like to use it whenever I can. The DiscoverIT, I find no reason to use it at all. I only have this card for the free TU FICO score. And the CIti card I use in emergency situations when AMEX is not accepted. I really want to sockdrawer this Citi card but I keep having to come back to it.
I was out at dinner with a few friends on Friday and wanted to charge it to my AMEX but the place did not accept AMEX so once again I had to go with the Citi card
So I decided the hell with this Citi card, Im going to apply for a new MC or Visa card. I really liked and decided to apply last night for a Chase Marriot Rewards Premier card:
I was approved
But the thing that took me by surprise is that they are starting me out with $7,500 credit line. Whaaaat?!! Is Chase that generous with CLs?
