you just called the number on your card, they use to offer $1500 without credit pull, but I think now they do credit pulls but you can ask

If you call the number on the back of the card, you can request a CLI.  Once they pull your report, 1-800-947-1444 will take you direct to their underwriting department.  I had a secured card with US Bank at one time.  I requested an upgrade to unsecured after 10 months and they pulled my credit and rejected me.  I called underwriting to ask why and they said that it would have been denied no matter how good my credit was since they won't upgraded secured to unsecured until at least 12 months.  I asked why they even bothered doing a hard pull, but nobody had an answer.  I did eventually get my "upgrade" after 12 month mark, but they needed to see a 680 Fico first.  They upgraded based on a hard pull from EQ, which was 683 at the time.  They kept the same $1100 limit I had with the secured card.  Then, one week later, they reduced the CL to $300 based on a soft pull from my TU, which was only 590 (a LOT of baddies on TU that aren't on any of my other reports).  Some "upgrade"!  If I wouldn't have changed to unsecure, I could have kept my $1100 CL reporting.
