    My husband and I were recently approved for Cap1 cards. (each got our own pre-approved offer) and I have the wonderful $200 limit. We aren't sure what his lmit will be.. I suspect $200 as well.

    I already called Cap1 and asked about upping dice!

    Has anone successfully upped the limit before their '3 month review'?

    If so, how?

    Call rentention at 1-800-889-9939 and say that you really want this card and
    want to start a frutiful business relationship with Cap One, but the limit
    is too constraining for your needs, especially in comparison to your other

    If you get a good rep, they should up the limit to $500, but I doubt it would
    go higher than that.

    Back not to long ago they would give $500 credit line to people who had NO JOB!!!!

    When I got a $500 limit card...LOWEST CREDIT LINE WAS $5,000!!!
    I tried to cut it up in 500 pieces and sent it back!!!

    Tell them sometimes you charge $200 in one they expect you to make payments every day????
