Re: CAPITAL ONE GAVE ME A HUGE CLI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations!  It's been almost three years since my last Capital One CLI, so I've been sitting with a $1800 CL for all this time.  I no longer use the card, since it offers no rewards, but I pay the $3 monthly fee to keep it active, just in case I need the credit in an emergency.  Hopefully, I will be able to get rid of it by next year, and then i'll no longer have any CCs with AFs.


Starting Score: TU: 566
Current Score: TU: 741 (Discover FICO); EQ: 755 (MyFico) EX: 774 (FAKO)
Goal Score: 800

Re: CAPITAL ONE GAVE ME A HUGE CLI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reading this post brought back memories. I hadn't joined this forum back in 2008 and I had just received my Capital One card. I was in the Credit steps program and I did get 2 CLIs. From $300 to $500 and whoa, a big jump to $2500. I kept looking and hoping every month after my last increase to see if I would get another CLI. After every single statement, the answer was always the same. No additional CLI. I then tried calling or requesting CLIs online. Nope, didn't work either. Then I found this website and everything made sense.

 

Almost five years later, I still have the same CL. I'm just holding on to the card for the few times I do travel international and because they were the first company to help me clean up my credit. I'm pretty sure I won't be getting a CLI anytime soon though :smileyhappy:

Capital One waived the $39 AF on my No Hassle Rewards Cashback MC recently after I called to close it. I was really surprised because I thought I would get their BS answer "Sorry, there is nothing we can do at this time, but ever month we monitor your account, so in the future...".

They wouldn't lower the APR on my non-AF card with them ($2750 limit - 24.9%) so it will just be sitting there improving my AAoA.
