That's great! I had my card since 2007 never got a CLI stuck at $2000 but it had an AF, so I just went ahead and recently closed it.. I had called a few times over the course of 5 years for a CLI but was never successful!

You don't need that card now. Just close it. I used my BB RZ MC Platinum less after I got my US Bank Cash+. I keep it because it has no AF and can't get it.

I have checked my daily puller since I got the CLI, no HP yet.
Congrats!!!! They might pull either from TU or EQ. You need to check your report.

Thanks everyone, just called and got a $200 increase with a soft pull. Bringing my total limit to $500.
Well, what do you know? The Back Door number (866-551-0258) still works,even after the change over to Cap One. I took a shot and called and got a really nice lady on the phone who, after advising her that their credit card now had the dubious distinction of being the lowest limit card in my wallet, offered me a $500.00 increase with only a soft pull. I've had the card since 12/2010 starting at $300.00 limit, and hadn't tried to increase until now when all my other cards raised their limits.
I asked her about a higher limit increase beyond the $500.00. She said that, based on the soft pull I'd most likely qualify for it, but she would have to do a Hard Pull and that even though their hard pulls are random with respect to credit bureaus, she was 95% sure it would be an Equifax. I have 9 inquiries on my Equifax (4 of which that will fall of by the end of the year) as opposed to 3 or 4 on my other bureaus. I told her I didn't want to risk another hard pull on my Equifax and accepted the $500.00 CLI and asked her when we could revisit the issue. She said 6 months.
As a new member, I want to thank all those who have contributed so much really meainingful info and advice to this forum. You guys (and gals) are great! thanks.
