Capital One-$500 $1,000 $1,500.

This account is only 4 months old!

Do you want to know how I did it?

I always paid on time, actually paid all in full every month

And requested them for the first CLI but they gave the 2nd CLI all by themselves!

Replied by hjm331 on topic Hey MarLi, I'm happy that

Hey MarLi, I'm happy that you have a Macy's card. I have one myself. I applied online and they started me off with $300 and I've made 2 purchases on it so far. I've had the cards for two months now and I've both gift cards for $30 each. I paid off both of them in full and they raised my limit to $600. Pretty good for a 2 month's worth of history with them. I just hope they can give me a $3,000 limit by the end of the year as they have done with somebody else here on FG.

MarLi, since you bought a Canon and HP computer, I'm assuming you have the Macy's Visa
correct?

Replied by MarLi on topic I applied for a Macy's

I applied for a Macy's card in May only received a lmit of $200. As I was instructed by one of the manager- NEVER ever be late. I asked and was given the following:

Aug-200 to 300

Nov-300 to 500

Dec 500 to 600 two weeks later I was able to do the following:

I bought a chaise for $1,000 they open a seperate account for the deferred payment. This charge will be deferred until June 08'. A week later I bought a $1,400 watch- this is called a top 40 account. On the same I got I bought a $500 neclace. I then was able to get my revolving account increased to buy a new HP laptop, canon camera, and itouch ($1,600). In total I have acrued over $5K. I love Macy's. By the way my credit score is in the mid 562. Macy's treats their customers like GOLD. :cheesing:

I don't know anyone who would buy $20,000 worth of stuff from Office Depot unless they're making a movie like Office Space.


I just have that office depot card from citibank forever. Over time most crdit companies raise your limits, I think I had $2200 at first. If you maintain a good track record, they all will raise your limits, worthless cards and the good ones

Replied by hjm331 on topic I don't think you should

I don't think you should expect too many increases from Target. A place like Macy's would give you an increase every 3 months if you take care of your account because they give you the limit according to their prices. If they give you a $200 dollar limit, it's not going to help you buy a lot of stuff from there. But since Target has cheaper prices, then $200 will get you a lot more stuff then you would at Macy's for $200.

Replied by Meya on topic So, I decided to send

So, I decided to send Target a pitful crying e-letter about a limit increase, and this is how it went

From me:
How come everyone else is getting credit limits increases except for me? I am jealous, I pay my bills to you on time and I believe that I am ready for a limit increase. This is the lowest limit that I have ever had. This is why I can not hardly use the card, I just use cash because my limit is too low. Can someone look into this for me and grant me some type of limit increase? I will gladly appreciate it. Thanks and Happy New Years!
