I recently got bumped up from $300 to $500 about a month ago using the credit steps program.
I've heard on other boards thta you can call a back-door number (877-513-9959), and get CLI's easier then their standard number.
Right now I make 3 to 4 payments a month to free-up available credit (I travel a lot and stay at a lot of hotels for work). I've had the card for 5 months and have probably made 15-20 payments in that time. I'm contemplating giving them a call an using that as an argument to raise my limit.
Has anyone had any success with this? Any idea of what criteria they use?
Call 877-513-9959 and tell them that "you want to make Capital One the #1 card in your wallet". They will give you a CLI if there is one available.

I was recently approved for a Chase Bank CC. Initial application was declined, but after calling the “back-door” number I was able to explain my situation and get the application approved. Initial CL...
