Finally Received Some Love From Cap1

After calling them every  day in April for a CLI I decided to give up with them and decided to call them again and the Rep asked me a few question and then granted me a CLI of $500.

Congrats on the CLI. Smiley Wink I only got the 3 month step increase. Closed my at the year mark, they refuse to waive the AF. Hope you have better luck.

Re: Finally Received Some Love From Cap1

Yesterday, I called the 800 889-9939 number and got an immediate CLI of $500 on my Cap 1 Visa...then I tried the 800 625-7866 number and got denied a CLI on my Cap 1 MasterCard.
I wanted to try both numbers and report the results here.
I would use the 800 889-9939 number if you are looking for good results.

Re: Finally Received Some Love From Cap1

I'm not on a step program through Cap1 but I did call last month and asked about a CLI. She said something about $500, I said, "Oh that's it?"
She asked me some questions, put me on hold, came back and gave me a multiple choice question on why I wanted more, then gave me a $2k increase. Now I'm at $5k instead of $3k.
