I'm with you. They keep sending us cross-sell materials but I've had the same credit limit for 4 years.

VERY irritating.

Too bad they are my oldest cc. I think I'm stuck with them...

Re: need to vent about crapital one

Typical Cap1 manipulation.

They do the same thing with CC limits. They will give you a $300 limit, deny a CLI, then offer you a new card and award another $300 Card and so on. Why? Because they want;

a) overlimit fees
b) high utilization per card
c) to raise your APR
d) to make more money then they would have if they just gave you a $3,000 credit-line in the first place.

Not sure how their CEO won CEO of the Year, I think they straddle criminal abuse of the system. Talk about predatory lending.

Oh man! I wonder if I could make an interesting art-piece out of my card?

When I called in recently for a backdoor CLI, I was told I wasn't using the card enough.... I wonder why???? tsk.

Hey! That's a much better limit! So they finally broke down and gave you CLI's?

So perhaps in another 2-4 years I'll see it break $1K.... oy....
