Yep i have the same deal on my card, a CSR explained to me that after 6 months of monitoring your spending habit's your card becomes eligible to have the limit increased or removed all together. i didnt ask if there was a magic formula for getting it removed, but i just pay my balance off at the end of the week.

Just another way to make sure your spending is under control in my opinion a good thing for those new to credit.
I assume autopay takes the fulll payment from your checking account on or before due day. You have to be sure you have enough in checking.
