I WAS on my mint account today and saw that my C account had a available credit of 3013!!. I said to my self "it must be a glitch on my mint account" so I logged in to my capital one account and there it was I went from a $300 dollar credit limit to $3300.00. cap1 gave me a 3000 dollar credit limit before the credit step program even ended. I was only going to get a 200 dollar cli because of the program but instead the gave it to me a month before and a lot more then 200. I haven't been using the card very much. A few things here and there but that's it. My credit has gotten a lot better since I first got this card. I was planning on kicking this card to the curve once I had it for a year. I think I am keeping it for a while.
I did recently get a cli from my best buy cc that might have something to do with it.

For your account ending in:
You've earned a credit line increase of $3,000.00!
Dear, solid snake
You're a great customer, and we appreciate you. That's why we're happy to give
you a credit line increase - you deserve it!
Your new credit line is $3,300.00.
That's an increase of $3,000.00.
Use your increase to help pay for daily expenses, or for that family trip you've
been thinking about. You can also transfer balances from higher rate credit cards.
Whatever your needs, it's nice to know you have more financial flexibility.
The increase is automatic, so you don't have to do anything at all. Just enjoy it!

My Capital One Platinum (no AF, but really high APR) went from $500 to $750 to $2750 in about 18 months.
I never asked for a CLI because I've heard that asking is a waste of time, but I can verfiy that they give decent increases.
I've recently been approved for better cards, but I'll keep the platinum open because Capital One doesnt charge international transaction fees.
