Hawaiian Airlines Elite Mastercard / Barclay's CL Increase

I applied for Hawaiian Airlines Elite Mastercard last year and my initial CL was $22,500. After spending some $15,000 on this card in 2021, I looked at my statement online and noticed Barclay's increased my CL to $40,000! 

In 2021 I flew to Hawaii First Class FREE three times! Thanks to their rewards system and I had free baggage and priority boarding!

Date Points:
FICO 845

Advice: When you apply for a credit card, be it rewards card to not, always pay more than the minimum and use it. I put a lot of spend on this card to hit those reward milestones and then I paid it off at the end of the month. 

This card was a replacement as I cancelled my Capital One cards in January 2021. When I got the Hawaiian Airlines card, I immediately put $2,500 on it. Then used it again to pay hotel, food and other expenses on a business trip. I attained my 60,000 miles reward at month 3. Then Hawaiian Airlines gave me an additional 30,000 miles. Not sure why.

, get tid Re: Hawaiian Airlines Elite Mastercard / Barclay's CL Increase

Yes get rid of those worthless Capital One cards. They will not lower your APRs and they will not give you CLIs too.
