I started with a $600 Freedom. I requested a new limit of $3k about 8 months later and got $2k.
Having a checking account and debit card probably helped you get the Freedom. I had those, too. Freedom is arguably the best card you'll qualify for until you have 6 months of history, and Visa is widely accepted, so just be happy with your card for a while.
So the history with the debit card probably did help, but you've already gotten the full benefit of that 'boost'. From now on, getting new cards and CLIs will depend on being a responsible credit card user.
