A few weeks ago, I requested an increase in the credit limit on my two CCs. I don't need an increase, but I wanted to see what it would do to my FICO score.

Both were rejected.

Citi says "your revolving credit limit is at the maximum we allow for the total income you provided".
They go on to say that if I provide more income info, they'll reconsider. And they tell me some examples of potential incomes.

The letter had it capitalized. I wonder if Discover is screaming? LOLOL.
It's true. I use this one only occasionally.
