Capital One CLI denied

I only have one credit card, a low limit Capital One card, I acquired two years ago when I started to actually care about my credit. Since I've had the card I have never missed a payment and balance stays under 10%. I recently inquired about an increase to my credit limit and was denied. I received a letter stating, "This Capital One account is not currently eligible for a credit line increase upon request." When I call for answers why I was denied, no one can offer me any further explanation. Should I apply for a new card, with a different company? It seems weird that a card I acquired with a 550 credit score can increase my limit now. Can anyone offer any insight? Thank you.

Re: Capital One CLI denied

You didn't get the memo? Capital One doesn't do customer-initiated CLI's for rebuilder cards. It's not even worth taking the chance that it could result in a 3 CRA HP. Use them until you have over 1 year of positive history and sock drawer them because you'll be ready for new cards.

Big suprise. Cap 1 is terrible with CLI's.

Re: Capital One CLI denied

I have 2 Cap 1 CC's, and the first one has never had a bump in the CL (been open since 2007).  The other had one bump after 90 days, but that has been all so far.  Doubt I will ever see an increase from either one.  Such is life.

I would SD it for recurring charges and move to greener pastures if you have the score and report to do so.

LOL. I honestly don't know why I keep opening the "Capital One CLI Denied" links and read the info. I feel like Charlie Brown falling for the football trick every time but keep landing on my butt..

 

I'm waiting though for the day where there is a link that says "Capital One CLI approved"..That will be the day!!!!

People open them because they're hoping to see some denial reasons other than "Capital One does not currently take customer initiated CLI's at this time".
