So I called the backdoor number again. I just did it three weeks ago and got it bumped up from $300 to $1,000, but I figured I actually do want to make a semi-large purchase and obvously want to keep the utilzation low.. so I called again. I have a $0 balance. I called and asked for $5,000. It took them a while, but they finally came back on the phone and countered me at $2,500. So going from $300 to $2,500 in 3 weeks isn't bad. I'll make my large purchase, pay it off and then try again in a few months or so.

Congrats! I learned from another member on here that you can do it in such a short time.
I hit the auto luv button on 4/26 and was approved. then I called in after reading about someone else's success on 5/15 and was approved again. I'm going to sit it out for a few months and try again.
