Auto CL increase from Cap One

Cap One doubled my CL from $1,000 to $2,000.  I've had the account open for 6 months.  Payments have been early and frequent to keep my utilizations down, for the most part.  Oddly enough my utilization was a bit high when I got the increase.

Wow, nice credit steps... I started with 2k CL, next month, credit steps said $500 CLI... so I will be getting 2.5K CL... sadly, it's still lowest limit.

 

Or maybe it's just said generic $500 CLI... hopefully I will be getting more.. atleast 1k or 2k...

That is a huge credit step CLI from them. I started with 3k and they only bumped me $500. Congrats.

Re: Auto CL increase from Cap One

I got my green MC rewards from Capital One about 9 months ago. Started with a $500 CL and they automatically increased it to $3,500 about 5 months ago. When I first got the card they said I was in credit steps and that after 1 year my CL would be raised to $750....I guess they changed their mind.
