Last week I was approved for a $500 CL Capital One card. I was wondering what are the odds that I could get a CLI at activation? Since I got the card, two of my scores have jumped (TU from 642--> 655 and EQ from 632 --> 663) just from paying off one of my cards that had a balance on it. I've read a little about Capital One not really being ones to offer this, but figured I'd ask and see what the experts thought.
I figure it wouldn't hurt to try, but what do I say when I call? Or should I wait a few months and try?

They turned me down for one on activation. They said to give it some time. I did call back around the second month to get it increased and was sucessful. Now, however, I have received letter's stating that I could not get another increase as it had not been six months since the last one was issued.
