First off congrats on the approval that is wonderful. The question I have is I just recently got approved for the same 1st card you got approved for with the same limit of $1000. I would like to know how did you use your go rewards card monthly that allowed you to get such a huge limit on the new card. Did you only use a certain amount every month or did you just not use the card at all.
I use the 1st card like around $600-800 monthly but I paid before the statement cut. example: my statement cut on the 5th every month, so I make sure I pay the card around the 1st so when the statement cut on the 5th, it only have small balance less than $80 (8%) and reported to CRA. I did this for 3 months. Hope this help
