I am new to the board and I am just rebuilding credit. I was approved for the Cap1 Mastercard in June. The limit was $300. I have had two statements so far and PIF. I called to to add an AU and found out the limit was increased to $1,800! I didn't even know. The rep said the increase happened two days ago.
When I got the card I was told I had to make 6 payments to be eligible for an increase. This is soooo unexpected. I thought it was a mistake. I have read that they are not big on CLI. I'm so glad to be making progress. Thanks everyone.

If you got the card in June, December would be 6 months. ...Congrats!

Congrats! I'm seeing a lot of posts like this. It makes me wonder if they're reading the forum and thinking maybe those people are right lets change. I hope so! Thanks for sharing.

Congrats. Cap 1 seems a lot more generous these days.
