For Sister - Cap1 Credit Steps

My sister just got her letter from Cap1 regarding their credit steps program.  Her initial CL is $1000 (she just paid her first bill last night).  The letter said she would get a $500 CLI after 5 months of on-time payments and using the card.

 

From what Ive read, the steps program typically has a number of CLI that occur at regular set times.  What can she expect from this? The first one in 4 more months would set her CL to $1500.  When would the next step be and for what range CLI?

 

Thanks

Credit step is one time CLI increase. There will be NO more CLI after this.

Re: For Sister - Cap1 Credit Steps

Least she got an OK start limit. I had a starting of $500 went to $750 that was three years ago. I only use it for crap stuff like security holdings for hotels etc I never charge on it, as they do not deserve a dime.  My other cards now range on average in the $20k range.
