Did you call the retention number or the main number? Call retention directly...I don't have their number handy but just to a search on this board under "Providian retention number".
Call retention and give them the old "I'm going to start doing some traveling for my job and need a card that I can rent cars and hotels with...what can you do for me in regards to an increase?" routine. See what they say. You're story is strange because Providian is known for being generous and timely with their increases.
Try providian @ 1-800-211-5815...ask for retention. I'm suspecting with a $100. credit limit that your credit history is atrocious. Providian typically starts out at $1,000. You may want to look at Orchard Bank (www.orchardbank.com) they will atleast give you $300. Good Luck.
my credit was terrible including a bk7 1 year prior to applying for providian. they started me at $500.00
and I'm due for my 1st increase end of month. (had this account 6 months)
don't understand a $100.00 limit card
I too am surprised at the trouble you are having with Providian. I have also had my card since December 2000, starting with a $400 limit, and it is now $1700. I received two increases just by pressing the button requesting a credit line increase. An automated recording said they would review my account, and a few days later it was raised. Try this, I have used it twice.
Same deal with me. Paid them every week right off the their web site. Increased me from 1000 to 1100.
Called to complain. Got no where. Have had the card 6 months. Total bull.
I opened my Providian Gold Visa Sept. 2000 with $1,000 credit line. As of today it's $1,700 and believe me when I tell you that my credit wasn't all that great.
I can't understand why your stuck at $100. Why don't you try writing to the office of the president. I did and got my $59 annual fee waived.
Best of luck to you.
I am baffled by this also. I have had my Providian Visa 2 years this past March. My limit was $1,000 to starting out, is $6,500 now. I'm working on the interest rate.
