I figured to get turned down for sure with the inquires - dealer put 6 of them on TU on 9/20 when I bought a car.
Instead much to my shock, instant approval. But a 2k limit.
So knowing they are good with recon, I called up and asked the analyst for something higher. They would not do it, wouldn't budge at all, the analyst said I needed a longer time of paying my bills on time even though she acknowledged all of them have been. I was like well how much longer, I've had my longest current card almost a year and that has over a 10k limit. She said they can't give specifics just longer.
Even Target gave me 1k so I don't know whether to be happy or unhappy. Maybe this is some of the "toy limit" thing going on.
I'm sure it will grow in time, but with a 2k limit it's just not going to be a "go-to" card. But having a Mastercard is good I guess.
Just an FYI for anyone who cares.
I'd recon my recon but I think it's a brick wall. You can tell when it's just the person you are talking with and the brick wall and this is the brick wall.
