Capital One - Increase in Credit Limit
I received a letter from Capital One yesterday indicating they were increasing my credit limit from $500 to $1500. I was excited until I remembered that they don't report the CL to the CRAs.
 
So what should I do to make that show on my report? I don't have any other cards or mortgage in my name (that are open) and have two AU accounts that will fall off at some point.
 
Do I really have to charge up $1500 to get this new limit to show? I really don't want to have to do that, but I will be mortgage shopping in the next few months, so my FICO score is really important and I want it to look as good as possible.
 
Any suggestions??
