    I was approved with a limit of $300 (boy, are they stingy!) How do I increase this limit? How long will it take?

    Be thankful with the $300 first they want to see if you will pay before they raised the limits.

    Be patient, pay on time, use the card. I started at $300 also; they increased my limit every 6 months, but they started small. Took about 4 years to reach $2K.

    If you can...charge $290.00 every month, pay in full till something happens (give them six months).

    If nothing happens in getting a credit line increase maybe it is time to move on....

    Thanks, I'll remember that.

    I'm sure with the gas prices these days, it won't be hard to do.

    RE: even better.

    If you are allowed to make online payments to them, charge up near the limit, and pay off the account, twice or more a month..

    I did that with capitalone, i'd charge up $400 (of $500), and immediately do the online payment for $400, then repeat.

    They certainly do see your paying patterns, and may be more impressed by that, charge everything (auto) insurance, groceries, whatever.
