They just CLId me from $500 to $800. All I did was mention the 18 month 0% financing offer and since it was for purchases of $429 or more it would basically max out my card. Said I wanted a new television and I asked for 800 dollars, she put me on hold for a minute came back and said "Congratulations, your new limit is effective immediately!"


I play on doing something similar when I get a day off from work.  I want to call them up, and tell them I would like to purchase a big screen tv, laptop, etc in the near future. See what kind of increase I can get.  I'd love to have it in the $1500-2000 range.  I don't really ever plan on using the card for anything other than for the discount at the gas pumps, but the increase would be nice for overall utilitization.
