Is your credit score good, did you miss payments with other credit cards? The have been known to lower limits and close their cardholder accounts for this. Not implying you did this at all, its just what I remember reading about in the past.

Mine has been automatically closed only because it had been inactive for years and I never used it due to the unreasonalbly high interest rates they give. I actually had to call and make them lower my limit when I first got it because I didnt want to have that much open on a card so I could prevent myself from using it for the mother of all shopping sprees if I decided to fill my "wish list" all in one afternoon.

Cabelas lowered my credit limit a couple of months ago.

Our FICO scores are upper 700's, but we have been carrying some balances due to unemployment, tuitions, etc

I just got approved far a Cabela's card with a $4000/month limit and something like 12% interest which is ridiculously low now. Funny thing is...I'm in college and work a job off the books. The only other credit I have is from a credit card I've had for over a year and never missed a payment and according to them I have no income. Didnt make sense to me but I was happy I got approved.

I just used mine about 20 mins ago. I am in an airport in iowa and had to change a flight. I use it for all my business travel. My company reimburses me and I get all the points. Beautifull thing!

Consider yourself lucky. Who really need another credit card. I had to cancel mine because they started putting charges on it for no good reason.

I was just sent a free multi tool for putting a lot of money on mine before this hunting season. It will all be paid off during the first billing cycle though.

no credit is the best credit anyway!!! The biggest thing is your need to state on your credit report that it was closed by consumer as if it gets listed as closed by grantor that will effect your credit score. I know alot of people that have been getting screwed by many credit card companies they dont care how long you are with them how much you make nothing if they feel your at risk limits will get lowered and accounts will get close.

Their credit card portfolio is experiencing increased writeoffs.

Cabela's
Retail has been a four-letter word lately, but sporting goods retailer Cabela's reported growth in earnings and revenue in the second quarter, helped by growth in same-store sales and increased demand for hunting equipment. However, it recently reported that its credit card portfolio had increasing charge-offs in July, a thorny issue that discounter Target (NYSE: TGT) has faced in the past. The company is still looking for growing revenue and same-store sales in 2009 over last year, but expects earnings to be flat. The mixed outlook prompted a JPMorgan analyst to recently downgrade the stock projecting weakness in guns, ammo, and other discretionary items. A total of 90% of the 724 CAPS members rating Cabela's see it topping the S&P.
