Just called that number. I only asked about Walmart at this time. I shot for $5k to match another credit card, they countered with $1500. Better than the toy limit of $500 but not as much as I'd hoped for. When I pay off the balance on my Amazon card I will try again for that account.

I told myself I was going to hold out til next week but I got bored. Called my good friends at Credit Solutions and after one phone call I raised my GE cards as follows;
Chevron $1200 to $2000 ( I felt bad to ask for more since its in the sdand I haven't used it in months)
JCPenney $800 to $1500 ( I asked for $3k but they countered, its resting next to Chevron only used it twice)
Walmart. $1000 to $4000 ( bal of $189 on cc)
All of the cards were opened in Sept/Oct 2012. I'll go for PayPal MC next month- I have to pace myself the excitement of hearing ' approved' had my head spinning since I'm in the garden. 😔
Looks like to me if you pull those Chevron/JCP cards out of the sockdrawer and put a lil use on them you'll net better CLI's!!!!

Yeah! You gotta use them a little bit to get the clis. I used my $6500 JCP to buy $1.07 dish soap at CVS the other day haha and pif!! :-P
GE is big on making sure you have:
A. Currently clean credit report
B. four on time payments...
...how you get clis, trust me!!!!😏😌👍👍
Wait... did I hear you right? JCP can be used at CVS?
I just looked this up: apparently JCP can be used at CVS, Rite Aid, Sephora
