Well, I feel ripped off now. I just thought they weren't doing them across the board, but if both of you just got them, maybe I was singled out. The last increase I had (from $200 to $500) happened as they cut my statement 2 years ago and I'd only had the card for 3 months then. I guess if they haven't done it by my statement date (the end of the month), I'll call and request one.

Vegas Wife - Don't feel bad, I was at $500 for 5 years and just finally got an increase to $1,000 last month.

I had pretty much given up and just kept it for the age and was thinking about closing it when they finally came through with the increase. They never accept Customer initiated CLI's. Just have to be patient with them, eventually they will come around.

Just wondering how they base their credit line increase. I opened my acct in 4/08 with 200.00 then in July 2008 I received my first increase of 300 then in 8/2010 I received a 500.00 dollar increase. I use my card all the time and PIF before the statement cuts. Just don't understand the low limits.
