Barclay's usage results in a healthy auto-CLI!

I mentioned in one of the other threads that I was expecting an auto-CLI from Barclay's anyday now. Well... that day was today! Just logged into my account for the forth or fift time today (not that I keep track of them or anything) and saw that my CL had jumped up by $3000. Went from $5500. to $8500.  I usually put $500. - $2000. on it most months and I've used the balance transfer checks once in awhile. I also make multiple payments each month. This month totalled close to $3k. I guess they do reward heavy usage. My increase history with them is -

 

Opened account - 8/20/12 - $1300. (reconned to $2000). - 5/2/13 - $3700. (auto-CLI) - 10/24/13 - $5500. (auto-CLI) - 4/24/14 - $8500.(auto-CLI)

 

The first increase was after 9 months, next one was after 5 months and then 6 months after that. 

 

If anyone has a long history with them, should this keep going or will the auto-increases stop at some point? 

 

Oh, and I was hoping to get to $7500. with this increase. Made my night! :smileyhappy:

Congratulations - My history is not very long - just over two years -  I have received an auto CLI on my cards every 6 months thus far.

With that kind of usage you should think about PCing to a rewards card.

I have a pile of "pre-selected" Rewards Card applications from Barclay's. I've been receiving one every week or two lately. Thinking about taking them up on their offer to see what I get.  I read something about them matching credit lines if a person has another one of their cards. Don't know if that is the case all of the time.
