Holy buckets Batman - What did Sam's club do?

So after I closed on my house I went on an app spree.  Got approved for a Sam's club  card.  A whole whopping $400.  I immediatly asked for a higher limit and was turned down.  I maxed it out, paid it off, maxed it out and paid it off.  I let the balance sit for about 2 weeks before paying off.  I asked for a credit increase and was turned down.  Decided to hell with them, I let the card sit ideal for 30 days.  I log onto my account to make sure I paid off before interest hit and verify I am truely at 0 balance (I am).  But notice they increased my limit to $1700!!! 

 

Holy buckets!!!  That is a $1300 uninitiated increase.  

 

How often should I expect these increases?

Congrats on the auto luv

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Congratulations! YMMV but a good rule of thumb is after every 4th statement you can request a CLI

Not the first time I read this story. I'm beginning to wonder if its a good idea to hold on to a new account for at least 4 months.

 

Anyhow, that's a nice bump!
