loukyguy's review: Appiled on 05/20/10 and got approved for $300.00 with a $39.00 annual fee. I called and asked about a CLI and they told me there not doing those for any cc's right now. I then asked what would they do about the AF and she told me that she would cut it in half making it $19.50.

My credit scores at the time were TU 687 and EQ 674

Get used to that 300.00 credit limit. This is the card that does not grow with you.

Congrats on your approval, I just received a $200 increase on my household bank credit card, which is serviced by HSBC

Congratulations! There have been many account approvals for this card reported on this site. Use it to build credit history and you can acquire other cards that will grow with you. I even have an HSBC American Express Plus Rewards Card with a $10K CL and an HSBC Mastercard Cash Rewards Card with a $7.5K CL. So depending on the card(s) even HSBC can grow with you.

Congrats on the card. I got this card myself last October with the same CL of $300. And I have called to request a CLI and was told they are not doing any increase at this time. We'll hope that changes soon!
