Still, the great and vast majority of people; those who have answered this same question 1000 times so won't post on Target threads anymore, started with 200 and are still at 200. Not being a smarty, just stearing this person to the facts.
Understood, and my point is that if you're patient, the card CAN grow with you. My scores are not great (mid/upper 600s) w/ average income, tho I'm guessing the fact that I've had the card for almost 7 years must mean something.
Never lose hope.

what is a "luv button"?
The 'luv button' is slang used to refer to the button or link found on credit cards websites to ask for a credit limit increase (CLI).
Some companies, like Bank of America, have them, while some, like Target, do not.
So when someone says that their card co. gave them 'luv', usually it means they gave them a CLI, because we just can't have a large enough limit!
