    Can you all tell me something...I know you said they usually increase at the end of the 4th month. If my 4th month ended 9/2/01, when should I hear something and can you tell me how they will probably notify me? Thanks!!

    Your feeling might be right, I have a few of those cards and like clockwork...on the fourth month after issue was an auto increase with an invitation by mail shortly after for another larger increase. Then starting with cards issued to me in March '01 that should have seen an increase in August...the increase never came.

    I think Providian may be tightening the purse strings on their credit line increases as their bad debt (aka deadbeat cardholders) are mounting to the tune of about 10% of oustanding loans.

    When ya'll say automatic did you get it? Just login and see it was increased? Was it like the day you hit 4 months or shortly thereafter?

    Thanks so much, direct!

    just call the 800# on the back of your card or check online if you signed up on the Getsmart/Providian website. The auto $100 increase usually shows up by the end of the 4th month with an invitation by mail either around the end of the 4th month or beginning of the 5th month after card issue date.

    The auto $100 increase is a good sign that the invitation for the $500, $1000 or $2000 increase is in the mail. That's of course if they haven't changed their routine as I think they may have in some cases

    I guess I should be a bit patient with the holidays and it did just end on 9/2....

    there was no $100 increase today...

    they better give it to me! ROFL

    Thanks again!

    I got an aria/getsmart visa in February. They They raised my limit without question after my billing period in June up $200. and sent me an invitation for an additional raise of a $1000 shortly thereafter. Of course, they charged $49 for the increse.
