Re: Amazing Birthday gift from Target

I would not say a lot, but last 2 statements have been more than normal. until last couple months, i would say maybe about $100 per statement with 0 spending statements in between. Last couple months about $200 / $250. One trick i have been doing is, when i check out, i will split stuff in to 2, and have 2 transactactions instead of 1. Then i walk over to starbucks (don't know if every target has it) and get a coffe, so that's another transaction. Then maybe buy a bottle water before i leave the store. So even though i don't spend too much on it, i try to increase the number of transactions. I don't think this card would grow much more than this, and i don't need it too. Now i will sit and wait to be converted to actual cc. I heard some people being converted lately.

Re: Amazing Birthday gift from Target

Ha ha I like your way of doing it. I've had my card since Feb of 2015 and only I CLI from $300 to $500 . Put alot of usage the first year but then stopped because of the low limit. Even voiced my opinion about it in an online message to no avail it seems. Maybe I will take your approach with multiple smaller charges here and there and see what happens.
