Credit Card Center Advertiser Disclosure†

My 5th statement with my Cap1 Newcomers Card just cut yesterday, and I paid the balance today. I'm part of the credit step program that increases my available CL from $500 to $750 after the 5th statement cuts. The original letter I received said my CL should reflect the bump "by your 7th statement."
For those of you in the credit step program with them, did it really take a full 2 months for your available CL to reflect on your account? Seems like a long time for something that should be easy to change in the system!

I received the same letter when I opened the card. My limit went up with my 6th statement and was available immediately

I know that I just want to know when it will happen!

I agree, but it served the purpose as a Newcomer to the US. Since Saturday I have a ZYNC in my wallet and once Alliant will give me a CLI (I know hardpull), CapOne will be gone.

To concur with what's already been stated, the 6th statement for me on both of my credit step cards had the credit limit increase.
