Conversely, I know someone who just got a Freedom Visa Signature card in the mail today with a $2,800 starting CL. Clearly it is not limit-dependent.

Do you know what APR that person has? Maybe has something to do with APR?

I think I read somewhere that you are eligible for upgrade if you've managed an account with a 5k limit for over a year.

Try Commerce Bank Card Special Connections Reward card, I have a high limit through them and low APR. Right now there's a lot OF POINTS BACK for anything even cash.
