I have a Furniture Row card through Cap1, who bought out HSBC, I believe.
Letters I get still say HSBC at top but to direct questions to Capital One.
It has a 1200 limit and I talked with a representative who said I'd have to go in store to talk
to someone about getting a limit increase due to their different plans for accounts.
Anyone that has this card, would you know if this is the way to go about getting an increase?
I tried online and got a letter saying "your account type does not allow credit line increases."
I am wanting to app for a Chase card offer and was hoping to do it after I could possibly raise my limit on my Furniture Row card.
Just walk in there acting like I'm going to make a purchase and ask them if I can get a higher limit for the purchase.
I AM planning on making a purchase, but I'm wanting them to raise my limit so I could put the whole purchase on the card,
instead of having to pay cash for some and then card for the rest.
