Just got an increase on my Capital One Secured card. My limit was previously $200, they increased it by $100 this morning. Not sure if it matters but I do have another Cap 1 card, not secured, with a $750 limit. I've had the account for 7 months, and it's been 4 days since my 7th statement cut. My util is TERRIBLE right now, like 85%, so I'm surprised I even got an increase. Never missed any payments or gone over my credit limit on the card.
Congrats!! Good to see that they are actually doing what they said they would.

Guess I will build up my capone security deposit since they are holding to what they said. Wonder if with a 500 limit I would get a higher unsecured increase.
Well like I said, my util is really high right now. They did soft me a few days before this too so I think that had some bearing on my increase amount.
Congrats! That is good to know.
