Major CLI from Capital One after getting Amex Platinum

Not to long ago I had posted on here about how I went from Capital One with a $500 limit to an Amex Platinum. If you would like to read about it you can find it here.


Anyways, after reading a few posts on here I called the higher ups there. I have asked for CLI before just by calling the reg 800 numb er and got nothing. When i called the first thing I told them was I had been approved and got my American Express Platinum card and had no intention on using my Capital One card again unless it had a higher limit. They then asked me what I would like my CLI to be I thought well this is my chance so I said $10,000 knowing I would never get it and maybe they would just give something. She said I would hear back in about a week. Well just today I logged into my account it's been 6 days from when I called and this is what I see.


Question? Can they see in any way that I did get an American Express card and was not just saying that and I was not kidding about just not using the card anymore? Could that be the main reason they gave me the CLI?



 This got a little messed up from coping it from the Capital One website but hopefully you can make it out. I keep getting an HTML error when I tried to post it. Smiley Happy I'm so excited about this I really can't believe it.

That's impressive, congrats!  Makes me wonder if I should have tried something like that instead of just canning Capitol One.

Best cli I've seen from Cap One yet.  Still don't regret canceling my cards.  Maybe they'll change their policies down the road seems the customer backlash is working somewhat.  Very nice cli, congrats!!
