Fingerhut Credit Card reports to the credit bureaus once a month, typically 30 days from the statement closing date. So, if your billing cycle ends on the 15th of every month, the issuer will report information on your credit card balance on or around that date.
The information reported to credit bureaus should usually appear on your credit as soon as it's received. However, it can take up to a week, or sometimes up to two months, or billing cycles, for a new account.
You can get a Fingerhut Credit Card credit limit increase automatically if the issuer's regular review of your account shows a history of on-time payments and responsible use. You cannot request a Fingerhut Credit Card credit limit increase directly, as the issuer does not offer this option at the moment.

To decide whether you’re eligible for an increase, the issuer will review your account several times per year.
If you qualify for a higher credit limit, you’ll be notified via email or mail.

Eligible cardholders can qualify for a credit limit increase as quickly as after 3 months of making on-time payments.
The issuer offers 2 types of automatic credit limit increases. There is a permanent credit limit increase, when the new credit limit will be reflected on your Fingerhut Credit Card right away. But the issuer sometimes offers temporary credit limit increases as well, which can only be made permanent if you make a purchase large enough to cover the new credit limit amount.
Ultimately, there are a few steps you could take to improve your chances of being offered a higher credit limit. These include always paying your bills on time, improving your credit score, and increasing your income.

Once you’ve initiated the dispute, WebBank will then contact the merchant and review any information provided by both parties. You won’t be charged for the disputed transaction, nor any associated fees or interest, while the dispute is under investigation. And you can still use your Fingerhut Credit Card as you normally would while a dispute is ongoing.
WebBank will notify you of the outcome of the dispute after they’ve completed their investigation. They will either issue a chargeback to your account for the contested amount, or allow the charge to stand. If the disputed charge is ruled to be valid, you would then have to pay that amount, including any applicable fees and interest charges that accrued during the dispute, starting from the original purchase date.
