I would say it YMMV, the ones who get the increases are generally the ones who have held the account for years and years with a small limit, but there are exceptions.

Wife got a cap1 platinum mastercard, her starting CL was 600. In one year, her CL is 1.6k, however she carry a balance of 60-70% util all the time. She paid more than min payment. I spoke to her many, many time about carrying that high util.

 

Anyway, I took the CC from her until she paid it all off. :smileyvery-happy:

My card went from $300 to $500 after three months and then jumped to $1800 after a year and remained there ever since.  During the period from opening the account to the $1800 jump I carried a decent balance on it every month.  I haven't carried a balance since then and I haven't gotten any CLIs, but I don't know if correlation = causation.

I rarely pay interest on any CC.   I have CLI on 3 Capital One cards, and I have never paid any interest on them.  

 

I don't think paying interest ever helps your credit, it only costs you money.

That sounds like a credit step CLI...

Yeah, I'm still amused by that if it really is true. No negatives ever, not even my first credit card. Oh, Cap 1...
