I opened my Walmart card in 9/2012 with a starting limit of $700.00.  On Nov. 9, 2012, I called the backdoor number for an increase, and they increased my limit to $3,000.  I just called the backdoor number again and got another increase to $6,000.00!!  That was only 6 days inbetween increases and I have only had my card for 2 months!  I charged a printer on it and then paid it in full and have not used it since!  I think because Christmas is coming up, they are being more lenient with the increases.  I suggest to those who want increases to call the backdoor number! 


 

Congratulations and you inspired me. I called and got an increase from $1100 to $3000! Yes..we love Walmart/GE!

Re: I love Walmart/GE!!

Congrats!! Why are you asking for the amounts your asking for? Do u have other limits that high or are you aiming for the stars? My walmart card started at 600.00 back on Sept. I called a month later and asked for 1000.00 and they gave it to me....I was afraid to ask for more. I called Monday and asked for 2,000 and they said I needed more time at my limit. I never know if I am asking too high or too low

I do have limits that high.  Higher actually.  My highest is 16,000 cash rewards at NFCU.  I apped for the card online and I thought 700 was a bit low.  Using the wealth of information found here in the forum, I was able to get it up to the 6,000.  I actually won't be asking for anymore increase and any that I get will be auto increases.

Re: I love Walmart/GE!!

BS!!! No "luv" for me. I haven't used the card at all though and have had it for I think 3 months? I have the regular by the way. I tried for an early increase last month and the denial was for not having the account opened long enough. I assume that the letter in the mail will say the same thing. Oh well. YMMV.

Re: I love Walmart/GE!!

I was inspired and called. Previous limit 700, asked for 3k and was approved :smileyhappy:

 

Have had the card for about 4 months and charge about 50-250 each month on it and PIF. Scores low 700s, highest other limit is 5k on 3 different cards. Util 40%ish (all because of 0% APR)
