Cap1 never gives CLIs unless you call the EO...and I would never pay creditone for a CLI......I would just garden, and apply for a new card whenever you feel comfortable.

I assume you mean the back number by EO, I will try that with the cap1 card. So just keep my $850 limit and just apply for another card down the road.

Does it really seem reasonable to pay $20 for every $100 CLI? They probably charge the $20 to your card anyways, so you end up with an $80 increase in available credit...lol 

 

And EO is executive Office. How old is your cap1 card, and what are your scores like? 

 

Any Negs? 

 

Edit: Also your GAP card is a GECRB card...how old is it? Have you tried for a CLI with them? It is always a SP and they are known to be very generous.

Call up and ask for a CLI on your GAP card. Doesn't hurt to try.
