When to request CLI with Capital One

I received my last CLI from Capital One back in October so I am planning to hit the request button in April.  The problem I have is I don't know the exact date that I received the last CLI on.  Is this important?  Does it have to be exactly 6 months from the day of last CLI?  My one year anniversary is also in April so I am hoping that will help with a large increase.

Re: When to request CLI with Capital One

You should be able to request at any time, if you are not eligible their system will tell you why, such as "There has been a recent Credit Limit Change." You can try every day until it gives you an offer. If you are eligible, Cap1 will most likely counter with an offer if they can't grant the full increase, in my experience anyway.

 

I did it yesterday, just for laughs. I am in credit steps for my QS1 and decided to try the button to see what happened, utilization was alomst 95% due to a vacation we just took. always paid on time. asked for an increase to $1000 limit and they countered with $100 increase for a $400 limit. got curious and tried again, changing some stuff, (monthly spend on all cards, projected monthly spend on this card, and new limit request) Requested $2000 and still was offered $100 increase. I just accepted it, as I will have my credit steps increase in a couple of months, this is basically double dipping. At this point in my credit journey I am just blessed they originally took a chance on me and that they even offered me anything.

Yeah I was in the credit steps as well.  I didn't receive a CLI until after receiving my credit steps increase of $500 and it was only for $300.  My SL (Platinum) was $3K, then I upgraded the QS, got my $500 step bonus for $3,500 then got my CLI to $300 to my current CL of $3.8k.

If you look online in your Documents (not Statements) there should be one for your last CLI which will give you the date

Are you sure about that? There should have been a letter dated on the day in October 2017 when you made your successful application reporting your approval. When I got my own CLI just now, the popup told me I would be getting that letter in my statements-and-documents folder soon.
