Re: Sam's Club store card approval

 


Oh silly me, I see that now. So why would anyone get a Sam's card if you already have a Walmart card?


To increase my available credit. I have been wanting another GE card since I got the Wally, and Sams was the first to approve me. I don't plan to use either of them all that much, I just wanted a couple of cards that everyone is having growth success with.

Oh ok, so I guess it just depends on where you are with credit. I have about 188k in revolving credit limits right now, so I'm focused on quality versus quantity.

Well then you just keep it up there.  Congrats to you!  Have you found that the more credit you get the easier it is to get more?   Just curious if creditors view you differently once you reach a certain level of credit worthiness.  I guess though its just like anything else, when you start out it may just be a little tough but once you get rolling it gets easier huh?

Yeah, I pretty much always get instantly approved, but sometimes I have to recon for higher limits.
