Anyway, I just find it weird that a company I've been with for 5+ years, with a perfect record, wouldn't increase my limit more than $500, while a bank that I'm just opening an account with is offering me ten-times that. Heck, even the account I opened with US Bank for my move to MT gave me a $2000 credit line.
And as to why I'd rather have the credit line on the Discover than the bank credit card - it's for the cash back savings! - amazing how marketing works isn't it? This is really amusing because I think in the life of my Discover card, I've gotten $20, maybe $40, back. I also have another $20 I can claim right now. Looking through their site right now, it looks like with some of their partners you can get gift certificates - the Omaha Steaks one that lets me get $30 for the $20 I have is tempting. So what's the lesson here? Offer me around 10 bucks a year and I'll be a loyal customer . . .
