Are all Cap1 cards considered Rebuilder?

I was just instantly approved for $2000 CL for Cap1 Platinum Mastercard.

 

I've read that many rebuilding cards start with $500 then increase to $750 and rarely offer CLI after that. 

 

If I'm starting at $2000, can I expect any increases?

not all  CrapOne cards are rebuilders.  They have some pretty nice prime cards (Venture and Cash Rewards).  The Platinum Prestige is their prime version of the Platinum card.

You call them "CrapOne" yet admit the card is pretty nice. 1.5% cash back on everything, no f/x fee, and fantastic customer service. Dang, that sure sounds like crap to me /sarcasm.

 

The only thing I wish is that my Cash Rewards Visa Signature looked a bit nicer (physical look of the card plastic) and that it had an EMV chip.

American Express Costco TrueEarnings - $8,300; American Express Blue Cash Everyday - $5,000; American Express Delta Gold - $7,300; Bank of America Travel Rewards - $5,000; Citi Forward - $5,800 and $4,500; Chase Sapphire Preferred - $7,500; Chase British Airways - $7,500; Discover It - $3,000
