wildrage2's review: Not to complain or anything. I realize I have crappy credit, and it's all my fault. I opened up 10 cards 6 months ago - some more 'subprime' then others. Continental Finance, Capital One, Hooters, and everything in-between. I've laid off getting new credit and am working on CLI's.

Today was my 6 month anniversery for Rewards 660. I called them up, talked to a nice man, and inquired about a limit increase. He congratulated me on my on-time payments, not going over the limit, and keeping my utlization low... He actually said "Wow, very good." So I'm getting ready for a $100 or more credit increase and he says "You qualify for $50"... What a buzzkill. I took it, no fee attached... But it still seems pretty trivial. I guess when you think about it, it's a 17% increase in credit... Blah...

Do you know have any Capital One cards? They are very good with CLI's. If you have applied for one of their cards and have been denied, I'd say wait another 6 months and maintain a 1 year of good payment history with this card and the other cards that you have and apply for a Capital One card. Good Luck

I have one of their cards. I prequalified for one of their rewards cards, but I'm waiting until my score goes up a little - for a better shot at a higher CL.

At least you owned up to your mistakes. Take the cli and run with it... Lol. Congrats on the cli!
