Fingerhut credit line increase

Just received an email from fingerhut saying they are increasing my credit line from 400 to 900. I have only used the card 4 times once each month I have had it no purchase was over 40 dollars and I always paid it off right away.

Re: Fingerhut credit line increase 2014

I opened a Finger hutt Account at 300 last may and have bought two pairs of shoes to show some credit history and made three payments on both shoes.

My limits went from 300 to 700 to 1400 and when i Checked  my credit report today the account had a 2000.00 limit, I was like WOW.

going to buy another pair of shoes and pay it in three months.

I just need my score to bump now

 

ANYONE HAVE experience with finger hutt and the highest CL they have ever given

Thanks

Re: Fingerhut credit line increase

They helped with my rebuild. They've got me at $1550 limit. I buy once a quarter from their clearance section to keep the line alive to keep utilization low and that's about it. Congrats on the CLI!

Re: Fingerhut credit line increase

Has your score jumped at all. I was wondering if I had open too many accounts. Since I started with FH I have opened wal mart 600, BOA 500, Cheveron 500, amazon600

Pay pay 600, jc penny 200, cap one 300,

 

I had a cap one when i opened FH that was 200 now its 750

 

I think I need to garden

Re: Fingerhut credit line increase 2014

All of you are very fortunate! Congratulations!

 

I opened a Fingerhut account in 2007, with a credit limit of $100. I haven't used it until 2012. I started buying samll things around $20 every 5 months. FH shot my increase up by 300, then 300 and 700, now its $1400. Last year, I convinced my  sister get an account also. But they only give me and my sister, increases temporarily if we buy something near $700, they will keep the increase at that rate, but if we purchase under the $700 mark they will decrease the limit by $500. Me and my sisters' credit score have risen and fallen accordingly. They have done this to me and her twice with they last 7 months. I feel they are holding my credit score hostage by these maneuvers. 

Starting Score:(11/11/2012)604
Current Score:
FNBO EX (9/05/2014)682, Credit Karma (10/07/2014)699,Equifax (08/12/2014)742
