Barclays 1 year anniversary treat!

Received Rewards MC last July for $5k. 6 months later received $2k increase. Today is the DAY I've had the card for a year and low an behold my new credit limit $9,500.00

Should I be greedy and ask to make it an even $10k? Think theyll wanna do a HP? If so, forget it.

Thank you all for giving me the wherewithal to garden for a year Smiley Happy

Congarts they love you 

Don't be greedy sounds like they will show you more love in the future IMO

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?

Yes. I'm going to not push it. I thought if they did anything it might be like $1k. I have to admit, I was worried about apping too soon with them so it looks like waiting a year paid off.
