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.


I guess YMMV really applies in some cases.  I have no explanation why after having my account for 2 months I've gotten substantial increases.  Maybe the closer to Christmas we are the more likely to get the increase?  I asked for the first increase Nov. 9th and the second today.  If you really want it, try again.  The good part is that it is a soft pull.

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)

 

 

 

 


Congrats!!!

Re: I love Walmart/GE!!

Well, after seeing everyones success, I called the backdoor number and asked for an increase as well. I was just auto-increased to 5k back in August (which was a double line increase at that time). I asked for 7500 and got it. Definitely easy!

'Tis definitely the season!!!!!!!! OMG!!! I took OP's advice and called GE for a CLI. I got my WMDiscover card mid-September with an $800 cl. :smileyindifferent: So I called today after reading this thread and requested a CLI. She had two questions-How much? and Why? I asked for what I wanted and I told her about the 0% finance deal. She told me it would be a soft pull and put me on hold for about 5 minutes. She came back and said congratulations Ms. -----. Your request for a CLI is approved and your new limit is $8,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  TEN times my old limit!!!! :smileyvery-happy: I figured WTH and I went for what I wanted thinking if it was too much she would counter offer. But nope, got just what I asked for. Merry Christmas to me!! :smileytongue:

 

Edited to add: I just received my first statement this month with payment due on the 18th. So I have not made even a single payment to them as of yet. I just checked my account and sure enough the increase is there and ready for use.

Re: I love Walmart/GE!!

Wow.. Congrats to everyone getting increases!

I just applied and got approved monday for the card. It was a pre-approval while I was logged on to walmart.com. I got approved for $700, but a HP has not shown up yet. I will probably wait until I get the card and ask for a CLI early next month. If I got away with an approval without a HP, I don't want to change that.
