Re: Capital One must be feeling generous!

After seeing various threads about emailing the executive office about increases, I decided to do the same thing this past Friday.  Someone called me back on Friday and I told him I wanted my $2,000 dollar limit raised.  I told him that I realize that I just opened the account in November 2012, but looking at the other cards I have, this one was never going to see any action.  He asked me what I would be comfortable with and I told him for now $5,000 would do it.  Looked this morning and my limit is $5,000.  No HP at all, considering I told him that I did not want an HP under any circumstances.  Perhaps Capital One reads these boards and sees that they have a bad rep as far as increases go and they want to improve that!!

That's amazing!  Don't see this much!  Congrats!  Nice CLI!  Smiley Happy
