Re: GE CLI'S 😍

Just called that number. I only asked about Walmart at this time. I shot for $5k to match another credit card, they countered with $1500. Better than the toy limit of $500 but not as much as I'd hoped for. When I pay off the balance on my Amazon card I will try again for that account.

I told myself I was going to hold out til next week but I got bored. Called my good friends at Credit Solutions and after one phone call I raised my GE cards as follows;

Chevron $1200 to $2000 ( I felt bad to ask for more since its in the sdand I haven't used it in months)
JCPenney $800 to $1500 ( I asked for $3k but they countered, its resting next to Chevron only used it twice)
Walmart. $1000 to $4000 ( bal of $189 on cc)

All of the cards were opened in Sept/Oct 2012. I'll go for PayPal MC next month- I have to pace myself the excitement of hearing ' approved' had my head spinning since I'm in the garden. 😔

CONGRATS!!!

 

Looks like to me if you pull those Chevron/JCP cards out of the sockdrawer and put a lil use on them you'll net better CLI's!!!!

@SpecFile - Fingers crossed when its your turn!

@LS- I thought about that and just might fill up with Chevron. JCP is a whole other story. 😒

Using it at Rite Aid was one of the two times I used JCP. 😒
