NFCU won't necessarily raise the other card. They give you what they consider a *limit* on what they'll offer you.
I've heard it's up to 40% of income....anyone want to chime in?
One more month for us to ask for cli!!!!
OP: CONGRATULATIONS! Was this a hard or soft and what is your spending habits and payment habits?

what do you mean they wont necessarily raise the limit on the other card? i mean i could have asked but thought i didnt want to press my luck..per the rep it was a soft not hard but i will keep look at my report or if i get any alerts..on my $1500 mc limit b4 it was raised i would spend a few hundred dollars a month and pay it off in full or leave a small balance..i actually used the visa more bc the limit was higher so i havent put as much on this card as the visa but now i will since the limit is so much higher

Why do you have to paydown the Flagship first? When NFCU does a review of existing accounts, they look to see if the account has been kept in good standing - paid on time, not over the limit - and they will ask you to verify your annual income.
If your Flagship is current, never late - go for it.
The csr will be able to tell you right away what you are qualified for.
