Wow, next thing they'll probably try to upgrade you to Venture after a while, they seem to be actively promoting that card to cash rewards users with lines nearing the required for visa sig these days.

Congratulations on the CLI.  I am surprised that they jumped it up that much.  Out of curiosity, what are your FICO scores?  How long have you had the card?  Thanks.

Congrats -- very nice increase! From my recent experience and that of others, it seems that Cap1 is starting to loosen up a bit. Here's hoping the trend continues.

i have had a secured card with them for 13 months that was supposed to become unsecured.  I have tried to contact them a few times but they won't budge.

Same here, and my platinum now has a $ 2,750 CL and no AF. One can obviously do better with prime cards, but no reason to get rid of it...
