Well I called the Cap1 back door number for a CLI and got denied...
I guess I'll try again in a few months..

I know people knock First Premiere, but to those who were in deep crap with their credit they are worth the fees. I hit the increase CL button for the heck of it and got $100 but my statement came today and they actually granted me $150 increase. Nice suprise

Congrats MsKiwi! That's a great news. If you have the money to support that card, then go for it. As soon as you get some better cards, dump them because they will keep charging you that monthly fee.

Thank you. I have some work to do on repairing my credit to get to the point of better cards. This is my goal for the next year....work like a crazy woman to get back to where I was 4 years ago.

MsKiwi, out of curiousity, what types of cards did you have 4 years ago? Did you have any cards from Bank of America or Citi? If you did, we would really appreciate it if you gave us your experience on how it is to work with the big banks.

Based on my income I have reached my Credit Line Increase limit. BOA will not give you any more increases once you hit 20% of your income. My question is this, if you apply for another card with the same banking institution will the bank let you run that limit up to the point where that card now represents 20% of your income? Will the bank give that much exposure to a customer? Example: You make $50k and you have two cards with $10k limits on both (20%) of your income on both cards.

Is that limit just for a specific B o A card? I only say this because someone I know has a $28k BoA limit and makes around 80k. It is an account that is around 10 years old.

Hi Wildrage, I have a BankAmericard and its at $41k with a combined income over $115k. The bank says I'm at my limit and they can't approve another increase based on salary. My question is if I apply for say a World Points Visa from BOA can I run that card also up to $41k? I'm thinking no because I would be exposed to $82k. So does the 20% apply in general to any credit card or "X" numbers of credit cards as long as the combined limits are no more than 20% of your salary?

Good news!!! I was approved for a Chase Platinum Visa Card yesterday with a 400 dollar limit, no AF, and 0% APR for the first 12 months. This is my 9th cc and I am breaking into the majors. And I applied for this card on a whim online with instant approval. I had a sneaking suspicion that I would be approved since my May TU score was in the low 600s. My HSBC cards are going on hiatus when they are paid off and Chase is going to get alot of my attention (even with the low limit).

Just hit the button at Macy's Visa. Last increase was 1/08 for 6000 to 9000 today went from 9000 to 11000.00
Forgot to mention BOA increased from 3000 to 5000 last week

Way to go, now we know what Macy's is working with!
