Another Walmart Store card to Walmart Discover card question. -sorry-

I have my walmart credit card since sept '11 with starting credit of $600. I have been getting auto CL increase to 1000, 1600, and now, $2900.

 

My balance is $300.

 

My question is why am I not getting upgrade to discover yet?

 

Thanks.

I heard the minimum was 1 year.

 

Your just at the year mark now. And its also based on your overall credit score. You could call and ask for a PC

I'd say bc it hasn't been long enough. I got GE upgrades exacty two years after having accounts always paid on time, though not always in full. Be sure to have your acct balance at 0 the 24th month you have it open. Got both of my upgrades that way....your current scores matter too, mine were 670'ish when I was upgraded. Also, pay more than the min pmt.

Are both cards issued by GE?

How often does Walmart auto CLI? And is it better to let it do that or call every 4-5 months?

Seems like every 3 months for me: 600, 800, 1600, 2900.

 

No luck on the Discover upgrade yet.

Re: Another Walmart Store card to Walmart Discover card question. -sorry-

I recently tried to get them to bump up my limit after just receiveing my card. I was denied. The letter said it was because of my lack of history with the current credit line of $600.00. Now it's time to let it grow on it's own.  Maybe it will be in the $1500. - $2000. range by this time next year.
