I bought a house last month, and a week later applied for a Lowe's card so I could get some lawn equipment. I was approved, but only for $300. Well, I used about $230 that day, then paid it off last week. Today, after making sure my payment had posted, I hit the Request Increase button on the website, and was immediately approved for a new CL of $1050!!!
This just helped my utilization go way down!
