Just received a $4000 CL

Short story:


Divorced in 2008, filed ch 7 in Nov 2008,


Got capital 1 CC in may in order to rebuild credit. With responsibility saw the CL go from 500 to 1500 currently. Also have a 500 CL Orchard card.


just applied for a Union Plus CC which came pre-approved in the mail, and was accepted for a $4000 CL.


And as of now my credit debt-to-limit percentage (prior to the Union Plus acceptance) was approx 10%.

Major congrats, cin2024!  Absolutely outstanding!!


That higher limit will mean even better offers/limits in the future, and you are the one who made that happen (by keeping your accounts in good order).


Good job.   Smiley Happy
