It must be christmas. Cap one increased me.

I got the credit steps card in October with a 300 dollar limit.  Maxed it and paid half the balance.  Called to see if I was eligible for an increase and was told I would get a 600 dollar limit.  Checked today and I was given a 800 dollar increase.  1100.00 total credit limit now.  I love Cap one.

At least they are treating someone right...and it's not me.


$300 CLI --- excuse me, but they need to get REAL.  They are STILL my worst card and will be a defunct card by July.
