Re: I love Walmart/GE!!

@kobe 

 

dont you think trying to triple your already trippled limit is going a little far? 

 

i would have asked for 3.5k. my scores are about 30 points higher which i believe is why i got accepted. 

last time i called for the 700-3000 they told me i would know in a letter =/

I dont think increase much on the store card would be a better ideas thou. Maybe increase for some meanful limit for your everyday credit cards.

Sometime other lenders might take you as higher risk if they see you had so many available credit on store cards. Agree its help for Uti %9 rules but YMMV I rather get 10k credit limit on my Amex Cards rather than Chevron Gas card .....Just sayin'  ^_^. But def happy to see we all get the higher limit thou. Its awesome feeling.

not saying its too much but even when i had  a 700 limit i didnt use it. 

 

i mean now i might get that ipad or macbook but still i would never be able to use 5k at walmart in a month. 

no walmart gas stations around here. 

there is one sams club but its too far to drive to get any rewards that i dont get from my gas station around the corner (get 10c off per gallon and double points (used for discounts on gas) on tuesdays. )   i only fill up on tuesdays though lol.

I do agree with you... that's why am stopping with this limit on this card and my gap... i'll most likely close this card in a year or two.... since I'm trying to be in a the garden, I'll just let my cards sit out for a while... :smileyhappy:

I do shop every month @ walmart... that's why I'd want this card to be @5k... especially when I buy a home, i'm sure I'll be spending a lot more.... it's funny cause I only fill up my tank every 2 weeks... so on my gas, i do think it is  too much...lol

Re: I love Walmart/GE!!

Hey All!  So I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon and request a CLI for the holidays to help with utility.  Went from $3850 CL to 9K!!!! A WalMart card with 9K??? Who would have thought.  I really do love GE.  I think I will take advantage of the 0% APR for 18 Months and buy some nice electronics for Christmas.  Was going to buy the stuff anyway- now GE has my business this year.
