Capital One auto CLI for $1,500!!!

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.

Congrats 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
