Lowes >> credit line increase

[ Edited ]

Approved for $300 last week. As a contractor they have a Dewalt 18 volt drill for $99 and the regular price is $189.00. I ll take 5. Oh I can't cover that for $300. Called in and they passed me to  the the 3rd rep and they said I can be approve you for $700 which that is a $400 increase. Thats a no go and I said I need $1000. I'll use my Chase Freedom and get my $100 after $500 spent along with 5% .Pre Black Friday and Im saving $. @ My lowes which is 5 minutes from my house and I know almost everyone by there first name. Got The $700 increase to bring it to $1K. I love Lowes and GE credit. They take of me and I'll take care of them.

Re: Lowes >> credit line increase

Saw some cool stuff that I MUST buy this thanksgiving. applied online and got an approval for $2K; called 800-444-1408 from backdoor forum and requested $5000, they said they can only give $3500 at this time. I am okay with that. The only concern I have is - they said this amounts to TWO hard pulls on my CR even though both the requests are 2 hours apart. is this ture?

 

I got a GE WM Discover limit increase from $1100 to $5K after 4 months PIF. hopefully I can get this Lowes card there after 4 months.
