Woohoo! First credit card limit increase in forever!

To my surprise, Capital One increased my limit from $1,500 to $2,500 yesterday! Didn't ask for it, didn't even get a notice of it, just happened to notice when I logged into my account online.

 

Guess they are happy with my performance. Account has been open since Sept 2010, on time payments and kept a low balance throughout. Feels very rewarding. Smiley Happy

Last time I had a credit limit increase was probably sometime in 2004 or so before everything went downhill in early 2006.

What is "non-HP"? Smiley Happy

 

Nevermind, found out is stands for "non hard pull".
