Mine was about 18 months old and the EO people matched my highest limit on another card.  They wouldn't go higher.

Did you have to tell them you had another card and wanted it matched, or did they already know about it and offered to match it?

Re: Capital One Executive Office

Posted this is another Capital One thread but wanted to put it here too since it was the thread that got me to try it :

 

Also wanted to thank everyone on here as I've recently had success emailing their office. Sent them an email last Wednesday or Thursday explaining that I'd be a customer for 7 years and only received one very minor increase and that was within the first few months of joining them. Never had a missed payment in those seven years. They called me on Monday and asked some follow up questions and said they would get back to me. I asked for $5000 expecting to get something less. Was at $1500 beforehand. Haven't gotten a call back from them yet but I logged into my account today and saw my limit was $5000! Thanks again to everyone who posted helpful information on here! Couldn't of done this without you.

Re: Capital One Executive Office

Hello,

 

I wanted to share my story as well. To the OP, I want to echo what they said, in that if I did not hear ALL the encouraging success stories on this forum, I too would have never had the fortitude to e-mail the EO. Well I have two Capital One cards, and my oldest card was the Platinum MC that I received after I had ruined my credit a few years ago. It was my biggest limit then of a paltry $500 CL, but I was so happy to be given a second chance. (That is something that to this day, I still think about and appreciate that even as a conservative lender, they at least opened their doors to me when no one else would.) Anyways, I used that card a lot, and carried a balance, but I was never late on any payments. About 6 months ago, I logged into my account and I saw that my CL on that card was raised to $2,000, and I about passed out! It was unreal, there was no heads up or call or anything, just a huge increase from a company that I thought only gave out $5 increases every 5 years! I was very happy, but I eventually applied for other cards and I was approved and I began to want to have real credit cards or "prime" cards as I hear on this forum, so I didn't really use my Capital One card, since it had no rewards or anything, but it was my biggest CL so there was no way I was going to close it. Last Thursday, I decided to send an e-mail to the EO and I was very honest in saying how I did not feel like this card was getting much use due to the AF, no rewards, and a relatively low CL, if any MAJOR expense came my way, but I also told them how gracious I was that they "took me in, when no one else would." I got a call from a very nice lady in the EO on Tuesday, saying that she received my e-mail and how Capital One is trying to change it's policies about increases and so on, and that she was going to do a manual review on my account to see what she could do. She asked the income questions and so on, and asked what CL I would like. I said that a $2,000 increase would be a great incentive for me to use the card more. She asked if I would be OK with a lower increase, and I said yes. Well today (Thursday) I got a call back from the same gal I spoke with earlier, and she said she was able to approve my increase, so my limit is now $4,000 on a CAPITAL ONE CARD. I was very happy, but that was not all. She also said that she went ahead and permanently waived the AF on my card, and she added a miles reward program on my card that will give me 1.25 miles per dollar spent. I had asked about a PC to the Venture card, but she said that was not possible since they are different cards, and I was fine with that because she had done so much for me already, and she really sounded sincere that it could not be done. I feel really good about my experience with Capital One's EO, and I will be sure to use the card more now, especially with no FTF when my wife and I travel. Very impressed overall with the professionalism and the promptness of my account review, and of course the outcome! A huge THANKS to everyone who posted their experiences and gave me the drive to follow through.

They asked what I wanted for a limit and what I would accept.  They didn't even actually give me what I said I would accept.  I based what I would accept on something about the level of the highest card I had and the length of time I had been with them  They went in between the highest and the lowest of the higher cards I had.  They will know what limits you have as they will do a soft pull on your bureaus anyway.


Credit is just like a video game. Some people have already gotten the experience from other games. Others, well they just have to learn. You go out on a quest. If you die or get wounded you just restart from the last save point or heal. Unlike a video game, we don't have a last save point or magic potions to heal instantly.

So maybe one day we will get a SIMs credit game so we can prepare better for real life.

they asked what I wanted, and I tild them 15k; it was previously 3,500.  They offered 10k, so I took it.  There was no mention of my other 10k card.

Re: Capital One Executive Office

I too had a great experience with CapitalOne Executive office.  I emailed them last Thursday stating how I've been a loyal customer, etc. etc.  One of the executives called me the very next day and asked how much CLI I needed.  I told him $1000 on my 1,000 limit MC and another $500 on my 700 limit MC.  He took my info and said he would submit my application to have it reviewed.  about 5 business days later, I logged on my account and "Viola!"  a $500 CLI and another $500 CLI on my other card!

 

So know, I have $1500 and $1250 limits.  I wonder if they PC'ed the cards??  I think these cards are stuck in rebuilder mode.  Should I expect more later?? 

 

anyways, I was really pleased with the way they handled everything!!
