Surprise! A RedCard CLI!

I happened to log on to check if my Redcard had a balance due. Even though I track them in a spreadsheet, and still get the paper statement, every so often I'll log on to check.


Surprise, Surprise! The $1500 limit is now $2500! 


The card started as the Target Visa at $10k many years ago but during the economic downturn the credit line was reduced down to $500. It sat there for years, and finally there's a third CLI.  

I was going to garden... Honest!

Congrats! While I don't have the target card, I have heard they are a tough nut to crack when it comes to CLI's. Congrats again!
