No. My orchard still sits at $300. This was the Platinum Cap One, I think $19 AF or something.


Hmmmm...that is what my Cap 1 is, but it started with $1k.  Wonder if that will still get some love soon.

How do you know if you are in the step program? I just opened a cc this month with a limit of 7.5k

No, Orchard has no steps program. This was my first card, and today my 6th statement showed up along with the CLI, and I'm suppose to get another $200 next month once my statement pops up.

You're in credit steps program with an Orchard card?  Did you receive some sort of notification on that or was it something you requested or?

 

OP: congrats man, that may be one of the largest C1 CLI's ever!

When I got the email notifying me that my Orchard card was converting to Cap 1 I called them to see if I would be keeping both of my cards or if I would lose one.  I was told that I would be able to keep both, but since my Cap 1 card was a Credit Steps card my Orchard card would also fall into that program.  Have no idea if that is true or not though.

You should get something in the mail within the first 30 days, but if you are not sure you can call and ask them.  With that limit I wouldn't think so, but it is Cap 1, so who knows! Smiley Very Happy

I'm just hoping this little "review" of their policy finishes up by the time I'm eligible for CLIs Smiley Very Happy

that sounds like one of their prime card, I don't think you would be in the credit step program. 

 

They treat you guys differently.
