Re: Cap One CLI Success stories, are any of these Credit Step accounts?

Any chance of Capital One PC from a secured to an unsecured card after a year?  I got $500 of secured and $250 of unsecured on my Capital One Platinum.  


I don't have any other credit cards right now; I am waiting for some of my CA GWs to go through.

That's called "Graduating" and happens sometimes.  It's not really a PC...  Search these forums for "Capital one secured graduation" and you'll find some helpful posts.

Re: Cap One CLI Success stories, are any of these Credit Step accounts?

My card was in the credit steps program. It started at 500 and I got the auto CLI to 750. It stuck there for over a year. Emailed the executive office on Monday, a rep called me within a couple of hours and the next day my limit was increased to 5000. I also had an old Cap One card that I've had for almost 6 years at a 300 limit without ever receiving a CLI. They upped that to 2000.
