Thats alot of credit to have at a walmart. Not real sure why they would get that high with it except on the Discover version. :smileyindifferent:

 


Underwriters can do wonderful things. I don't have the Discover version and mine is at $10,000 now.

Re: GE Walmart CLI

For those that have received substancial CLIs, do you try the love button online first and then, if the increase isn't good enough, give them a call or just skip the online option and  just make a call?

Re: GE Walmart CLI

For those who have the Wally Discover through an upgrade, how long did it take for you to get it? On my upgrade letter, it says I have until October 23rd to opt out of it, so I'm assuming I won't get the card until AFTER that date so they know for sure I want it? I could be wrong... just thinking out loud here. I'm anxious to get it to see if it will have an increase on it; if not so I can call them and request one :smileyhappy:

no i called at around 730pm eastern. automated system denied my request. i called and said rep until a rep came on. 

rep said she took my request and would forward it to credit specilasit (i think that meant the uw) and they would send a letter in 7-10 days.... but i checked online and my cl was 3k instead of 800 so obv i knew it was approved.

Re: GE Walmart CLI

Just called 877-379-4936 and got CLI from 2500 to 8000.  Not that I'll ever spend that much but more for utilization purposes.  Took like 2 minutes.  Thank you ALL! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: GE Walmart CLI

Called late last Friday night and bumped my initial $600 to $1200.  Should have done this sooner.  Not gonna splurge, want the limit increase (currently sitting at 3%).

Re: GE Walmart CLI

vsweetee1,

 

Did you ask for $8,000 or they just approved you for it? What was yoru balance on the card? And what was your total utilization % on all of your credit cards? I just want to see if I could get mine approved for that much. Thanks!
