Congrats!! I have one of those too but it's only been opened since August. I can't wait for mine to graduate.....I run through quite a bit and pay weekly like you do. That is a nice limit they gave you!!

BofA has just graduated my partially secured CC (aka the 99/500 card), right after the 10th statement cut. They have also increased the credit line to $2,000. I'm assuming this is all with a SP since I did not ask for anything.
I have been using the card quite a bit, especially in the last 5 months – $700 charged per month on average, with a payment every week to bring down the balance to $0.
Hope this will be of use to those of us who went this route for building and rebuilding.
This is great news! Congrats on reaping the early fruits of your efforts!
Way to go!

Congratulations! I was going to say it was unusual to 4x the credit limit after graduation, but then I saw you had a card with a near 5k limit already

I had no baddies, no. And no credit history either, since it is the first card I got upon arrival to the US.
Anyone have info on this card? Scores needed? Any bad information you had on credit when you applied?
