Wildrage2's Card Review:

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?

Comment Title: Back Door Number. From Adicus on 2008-03-24


I think the back door number is (800) 889-9939.

I used it per HJM and all I had to say is: " I'm inquiring about a credit increase" and they usually grant it with no problems. Best recommendation to date.

If you just got a CLI, wait 3 months for another one. They won't give you one back to back.

Apparently there was a big promo yester day...

Ineed on the boards they are saying..

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 called that back door number for capital one and told them I wanted to make them the number one card in my wallet, and got a cli of 4000!!! That's really going to help my credit rebuilding.

I love this site, so much info, I have a Visa and MasterCard from capital one, I called the back door number, and didn't think I was going to get it because I recently just got a increase on both accounts, well I called them and told them that I want capital one to be my best card and too my surprise the lady gave me a 1000 dollar increase on both accounts, wow
