Hey everyone. Just wanted to note that I got a bump from my Capital one Secured card today. They upped my limit by $300. Started it off in May with a $1000 deposit. Hoping for it to unsecure or get another increase after the 1 year mark. I think they reviewed at 6 months. Was really hoping for this! Woohoo

Congrats! I guess they think you've earned it. What a great feeling! From my experience, it's like pulling teeth to get a CLI from Cap One. Great job!

Thanks everyone! I know they can be tough with increases, so this does make me feel freat. It's not the utilization of the increase, it's just the sign of good progress. Even if it doesn't graduate, I'm going to add another $1000 since I will need it for expenses for my job and hopefuly it will show other lenders I can handle larger limits.
