After being approved for the card 4 months ago i received a letter in the mail stating my credit steps would kick in around the 4th statement. My 4th statement just cut no credit steps what gives?
UPDATE: I just looked online an my new credit is $1000 i guess it just took a few hours for everything to register in there computers. This is a happy moment for me this is my highest CL on a major credit card. In 3 more months my CL will be $1500. I guess after that i will be stuck at $1500 lol.

Pardon my ignorance but what are credit steps? Sorry for being such a newb.Message Edited by 1dawg on 04-25-2009 01:45 AM
Basically a credit limit increase.

Did you call the magic number and request a CLI before your credit steps was set to go in effect? I did call, was granted a CLI and did not receive my first credit step increase. My 7th statement just cut and I rec'd my second CLI.
I did twice but they declined it.
