    Hi guys,

    Has anyone been successful in getting a low Sears limit increased? My limit was $250 when opened in Dec 99, they raised it to $450 when I asked last October. This limit is ridiculous even compared to my other retail cards (Kohls $1500, Home Depot $2100, RTG $3000). If they don't budge, it's gone, but I need to wait out the 24 month history regardless.

    I made a little progress yesterday on two accounts:
    Got NextCard cut from 18.99 (Ack!) to 16.9 I think, with a new 9.99 purchase/BT rate for 3 months. The card is 5 months old. The guy said I should be able to get a lower fixed rate when the promo expires - we'll see. Also, Wells Fargo offered 12.3%, 15 month account. Maybe I should have asked for an increase at the same time, just to have something to do :)
