Another CapOne CLI???

So, I just pulled my reports, and Cap One just gave me another $500 CLI?  It was probably my time to get the one time "credit rebuilder" CLI after 6 on time payments, but I recently contacted the EO and they raised my CL from $500 to $1500.  Today, my credit limit is showing as $2000.


I thought this card was only supposed to go from $500 to $750.


I'm confused...and shocked...and thrilled...and confused.  LOL


Has anyone had this happen with the rebuilder card?

Re: Another CapOne CLI???

By the rebuilder card, do you mean the secured credit card? I just opened this card with a $500 CL.


Congratulations on such great increases! I hardly ever read success stories like this for the CapOne secured card, which made me weary of applying.


Can I ask what your spending and payment activity has looked like? Meaning, for example, are you spending 7-9% of your CL and paying it off every month?

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?
