I dont understand why they are instantly denying you. Im still waiting on a call to let me know if they are gonna do the CLI or not. The rep took all my income info and said they will send it to senior u/w team and get back to me on what they can do. I wonder why they are not doing the same for u? Something is very peculiar here. Everyone seems to have gotten done like me, had to wait on the call, except you. I wonder why they are doing that to you? Cap1 is a strange animal.
I had the same experence as you, and had a answer in less than 24 hours

+1 I used to be kinda annoyed by Capital One's lack of CLI's...and then I reached the same conclusion as you haha. It's just so much easier to not fight it and just stop caring.
I love how you have a $12,000 limit with Amex and $750 with Capital One. That is just hilarious
I just got the 3X CLI increase on BCP earlier this week haha! Like I said earlier, I might care more if I didn't have other options than Capital One. Haha it is kinda funny to look at.

I mean... I literally have $60k+ of unused credit Visas, MCs, Discover and my "fake" barclay's Amex lol... Just irritating! Haha
My old Orch Bank/HSBC/Cap One account limit is even higher than this one at $1,500 although it's my only card with an AF @$39. Should I call the Exec Office about that one instead? Lol only thing is I got a $200 cli on that one in May. I've had no balance since March on it.
Lmao. I'm just about done playing Mr Naive Nice guy. This s*** is about to get heavy lmao.
if you don't need the card why not just cancel it?

Again... It's my OLDEST tradeline, and despite what people say about it continuing to be factored in my aaoa of I close it, I know it won't as evidenced by the fact that my old CLOSED Wamu acount IS NOt factored into my aaoa or util even though it's also an oldest account too (from 2007).
if you have 60K in available credit are you needing to apply for more? if not who cares what your AAoA is?

Hi - I just went through dealing with the executive office myself and had a good experience fortunately. If I were you, I would keep the number and put it aside for a month or so and then try calling again. I am sure since the number appeared on the boards they have been bombarded with phone calls and people wanting upgrades, etc. They do seem quite concerned about where people are getting their number lol!
I also kidded around quite a bit with the agent I got and made him laugh and I think (may not actually be true but ya never know) that they treat people better if they feel a connection with them. I actually had this number for over a year and never called and when it surfaced on the boards figured I would call. I did start the conversation off with them in a very tentative, I don't know anything sort of way and let the agent do the talking and just asked questions. Seemed to work for me.
Best of luck to you!
