    Joeyman - what you said is correct in the perfect world. For myself I have had Bank of America, Wells Fargo Bank and HSBC all pulled "hard inquirys" and then deny the credit line increase. Like you said, you never know. Frustrating.

    With Elan Financial Services, if you ask for an increase over the phone with the automated system, you'll get a hard pull. Rather, submit the form online and wait a few days with no inquire. It doesn't make sense. What about all the illiterate people out there? I feel terrible for them.

    joeyman - I submitted through my bank for an Elan Credit Card and got denied. Reason was too many inquirys, too much available credit and...? Can't remember. It is correct but since it was a paper application through my local bank it seemed I might have a better chance. Wrong! You make a good point, a telephone call gets a hard inquiry but a paper app doesn't?

    I would have thought that they'd be more lenient with a phone call application than a paper application.

    I'm a current BOA customer and once you prove to them that your responsible with your secured card, they will offer a unsecured Visa and then the sky's the limit as far as Credit Line Increases!
    Thanks for the insights smcc. :)

I have had the Orchard Mc since 2006 and pay the bill in full every month. I just receive the BoA Visa. I did have a First Premier Visa and MC, but closed both out because of the crazy fees. Credit scores went up when I closed both out.

    My problem is that I would like to continue to build my credit, but keep getting denied. I applied for a Target Red Card (had one 5 years ago, closed out, always paid on time) and was denied. I also applied for a Exxon gas card, but have not received an reply.

    My scores as of date are:
    EQ- 554
    EX- 579
    TU- ?

    I would like to get at lease one more Visa or MC and a retail store card. Would love to have a Macy's, but still owe on credit report.

    What cards do you guys think I could qualify for? The information would be a great help. Orchard just increase my limit to $500 and BoA limit is $300.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    the first plan for action is to sign up at credit karma.com and get a free credit score from trans union as i see that you dont know that particiular score
    next get a public bank visa secured card RIGHT NOW!!!
