Cap One AND Citi showing some love!

Hey all,

 

The past couple weeks have been excellent for my credit limits. Earlier this month I spoke with the Capital One Executive Office and managed to get my Cap One Student card bumped from $750 to $1000; this morning I logged into CitiCards to prep for a balance transfer and saw an offer to check for a credit line increase. It was the short form without a credit inquiry; after entering my information, I got an offer to double my CL from $1000 to $2000.

 

Needless to say, I took it without hesitation. =)

 

My credit has improved massively from where it was just a year ago, and I'd like to that you guys here on the forum for helping out with that, which I'm sure is what led to these increases.

I don't see a place to even ask online so guess that means it's not available? that could really help in deciding if it's something anyone should request

Congrats, it's rare to see Cap One CLI success stories, lol!  So Citi gave you a CLI without a hard pull eh?  That's nice.  Where did you see the offer to check for a credit increase (with no inquiry)?  I'd love to get a CLI on my Citi Forward with only a soft.
