I had a somewhat similar situation.
We were in Home Depot getting everything we needed to construct a new deck, i noticed that HD had an offer whereby if you opened one of their charge accounts they would give you a percentage (i can't remember the figure) off your first purchase.
So we picked-up/ordered about $2000 worth of timber and applied for an account, which was accepted with a credit line of $300 :-(
Never one to be beaten i split up our order and charged as much as i could to the new card, the balance went on another.
Within 2-3 months my credit line with HD was raised to $4000-ish.
FYI : This account is now firmly closed.
