I am 6 days short of the 6 months. 6 days. I kept getting the "please call back in a week" thing. I'd really finally had it with them. Was told no yesterday. CAlled back today b/c I was so irritated with them. Talked to a supervisor and she acted like it was SUCH a big deal to do it 6 days early. Good god, I've earned it with them. Anyway, I agree that tenacity is the key with them. Course, sometimes I really wonder if they're worth all this trouble. My other credit cards are so much better at increases. Oh, on this card I've been told by diff reps that the computer will review my account yearly, every 6 months, every 4 months, and periodically. They have no clue. I also mentioned the limit reporting thing. She said she'd forward it to their credit dept and "do what they do with all their accounts". Guess that means nothing. So I'll run my big 500 extra back up and then down to show it on my report. Jerks. They really don't care a bit about us. Today's conversations were absolutely ludicrous. I actually really like Providian in comparison. At least they recognize that I've earned higher credit lines.
