In one fell swoop, after being denied just three weeks ago, they gave me a 250% credit increase on tonight's update. They either grew tired of my constant calls to customer service to check my balance, make payments, dispute things, double and triple check, etc. etc., or maybe my bottom-of-the-barrel score IS finally coming up. Perhaps they caught wind I just applied for credit with their competition. Anyway, it feels prety good to get such a generous increase. So to those who threw in the towel on Capital One, there appears to be hope after all.
