Re: Your first and highest CL leap ...

I got a US Bank student Visa CC with a $500 limit back as soon as I turned 18 ~8 years ago. It grew with me over time until I hit my current limit at $8k a year or so ago. No lates or other derogs on the account in that time frame. I got a Chase Visa about 6 years ago as a $2k limit, and that has morphed into a $4400 Freedom and has sat at that for about 2 years now. I'd risk the HP to push them higher but we're about 3 months away from a mortgage and I don't want to scare any Underwriters, considering I'm only at about 4% utilization. I think I could easily push both higher if I wanted to.
