Got my Biz card in the mail today. They gave me a whopping $1000 "kiddie limit". I'm not sure how I'm gonna spend 10k within 12 months without going over my limit or better yet without utilizing more than 50% of the limit. This is my lowest credit limit yet. Most of my other cards are 15-20k. I submitted a request for a higher limit which they declined. I asked them to move some of my credit from one of my other card to which they replied that they don't do that anymore...

Anyone have thoughts on this?

Why did they decline you?

I'd try for the other two either way.

anyway i  just got instant approval for the amex.
how can i find out why i got declined for the visa? the email i got says something about them using a points system to approve applications....i did fill out more of the not-required fields in my amex application just in case

Yes, I meant Amex & bus.

My 'declined' emails had reasons. You can also call and ask (if you have your applicationID)

Did anyone actually confirm that they are receiving the said promotion?  I received the Business Visa and when I called to get a second card, I asked them to "remind" me of what I needed to do to get my bonus and they said I was getting 30,000 after $750 within 4 months and an additional 10,000 after $5,000 within 12 months.

I called and confirmed the correct amounts on all 3 of the cards i signed up for.

i just got denied for the personal card based on my credit score. I know that it is low since I have a student loan taken out on my social. How can I up my score? would it help to reapply putting in a higher income - how high? also does it hurt my score to apply for a card - is it worth a shot for the business? any ideas?
