I called Capone today and the rep told me he couldnt find the reason my CL was reduced, but he would do a hard-pull to see if they could increase my limit. I told him hell no, I am not doing a hard pull for an increase that wasn't guaranteed, besides, I plan to apply for a morgage loan later in the year.

Since you have a NFCU card with a great CL already, then I'd just sock drawer the Cap1 cards unless they have annual fees. FICO scoring likes to see several open revolving accounts so I'd just let them idle for now.

Use the HP on an Amex revolver where you are guaranteed to have a high limit either off the bat or after 2 months. Keep them open if no AF but never give them the benefit of use. If they pulled that with me, I'd be off the chain pissed off.
