Citi CLI success!

Postby dlgoldamex » Wed Feb 20, 2013 11:28 pm

Today is the day of my 7th statement on my Citi Forward card, so I decided to pull the trigger and request a CLI. I asked for $2000, and they countered $800 with only a soft pull. Not what I wanted, but totally enough. This brings my limit to $1800. Not so bad considering I'm not even 19 years old, I guess.
Gold Delta Skymiles -AU- $25k- 4/12
Citi Forward Visa- $6.1k- 8/12
Amex Gold Delta Skymiles- $3.8k- 1/13
BofA Travel Rewards Visa Sig- $5k- 1/13
Amex Blue Cash Everyday- $5k- 7/13
Barclaycard Arrival WEMC- $5k-1/14
Cap One Quicksilver Visa Sig- $10k- 4/15

Congrats!
I usually wait a year to ask (on or after the anniversary of my opening date) but usually they bump it up auto.
Do you know about Amex's 3xCLI policy? Tho I suggest you wait a while to ask even if you are eligible for it.

Thanks. Yes, I know about Amex's 3x CLI policy. My 60 days will be up shortly after I return from the trip to Europe next month that I got my Delta Amex for.

I have my Citi Forward with $1k limit from September 2012. So in few days I'll have my 6th statement.

I tried to increase CL online a month or two ago, but got an result that I have to wait at least 6 months to ask for CLI.
And today I tried to increase again, I said that I want $5k limit. I got an instant answer that they gonna make it $1800 with just a soft pull or I can ask for more (and as I understood that will be hard pull). I decided to go with 1.8 and soft pull. It's not what I wanted, but it would help me with keeping lower utilization.
My Cards:
American Express BCE................................$15k (06/12)
Chase Freedom Visa.....................................$5k (09/12)
Chase Sapphire Preferred.............................$9.2k (03/13)
Citi Forward...................................................$1.8k (09/12)
PayPal Smart Connect..................................$2.2k (05/12)
CapitalOne Cash Rewards for Newcomers..$500 (11/11)
