derek1061's review: Callout Comment So I went online to check out my credit card statement and CL went from $320 all the way to $1,520. That is a huge credit limit increase. Ive never even heard of such a thing from HSBC. I was sooooo excited. YAYYYYYY

Remarks Wow, that is huge. Congratulations. What do you think caused this? Meaning, do you use this card on a regular basis and then pay it off in full? Has your credit score improved recently?

Remarks I think it may be an indication of the economy recovering. Notice that last month the unemployment rate was lowest in over 2 years at 8.9% on a national average. People are spending more, feeling more confident about their jobs, and so banks will start lending. Cards I had been looking at that offered only a $250 credit limit, suddenly are offering $350. Monitoring bank activity and sharing resources the way we do here on FG is extremely valuable. Congrats, and thanks for the post Derek1061.

Remarks I use my card every single day and use it to the point of being almost maxed out until I get paid and then I pay in full. It did take me over 2 years to receive my first cli but it sure was a big one.

Remarks Congrats on the cli's. I decided to check my online statement and no change in credit line. I called and they said no. My scores are above 740. Got the card when my credit wasn't the greatest. I should just cancel the card but best buy is one of my favorite stores.

Remarks Dude that is awesome! I've had the card since September 2010 and have a limit of $300... I've used and paid $4000 to HSBC and I call them every month begging for a CLI... This story is encouraging, but looks like it will take me a long while! Any other pointers? Thanks!
