So I contacted the same Rep from the Cap One Executive Office yesterday, whom I spoke with in March. She had told me to give her a call back in a few months and she would put in for another CLI for me. Previous CLI were only 250$ and today she called me back and Bam both accounts raised to $2500. I wish they would combine both my limits or one day PC to a Venture card but she stated it wasn't possible at this time and to check back in a few months. Ill take the CLI and keep them in the SD till I get the 5K I'm requesting! This isn't to shabby taking into consideration my limits 6 months ago were $500 and $750. I'm not sure if its because my scores have increased alot and UTI down to below 8% or there getting tired of me but anyhow I love this Rep .
Below are the increases I've received in the past 6 months via EX Office.
$1000 to $2500
$1250 to $2500
$750 to $1000
$1000 to $1250
$500 to $750
$750 to $1000

So you just called back after three months and asked for another CLI? Did they remember you at all and what did say? Just wanted to see if you can request another? Were there any kind of pushback?

I called yesterday and asked to speak with the person that I talked to last August. Was told that she's no longer in that department. The woman was very nice and asked what she should do for me. I told her that was interested in having my account reviewed to see if it's eligible for a CLI. She asked some basic questions, how much I would like and if I would accept a lower amount if the first one wasn't possible. At the end she told me that I should receive a call in a few days. My account was at $750. last Summer then I requested $1500. in August and that was approved. Yesterday I requested $2500. I received a call later yesterday afternoon to tell me that was approved.
I asked about Orchard before I hung up. I wanted to see if I could get an increase on that limit also. She said that they don't handle that yet but would forward my info to someone that does and I should receive a call in a few days.

@Masscredit be careful with Orchard and Best Buy(it will be a hard pull). I'd suggest you wait till after summer when the Merger is complete.

Correct. The OB Card CLI will be hard pull as of now. I told the lady from OB ( she told it will be hard pull for CLI) last month that I'll wait till transition to Cap One and then see if that would be a SP instead of HP now.
