Wal mart success!

Just a quick note to share with anybody who may find it helpful. My wal mart card doesn't post statements to my account online unless I have a balance or maybe pay the balance within a day or two of the statement cutting. This frustrated me because I thought it was the reason I was unable to obtain credit limit increases every four months because I didn't actually have four statements.

Well tonight I went online and pulled the trigger; was approved for a modest 150 dollar increase. This was a small victory as I was previously let down, but I wasn't satisfied. I immediately called credit solutions and asked for more, stating that I needed more buying power, wanted to take advantage of in store financing promotions, etc. I requested an increase of 1050 dollars, after a few minutes of being put on hold came back and was approved for the full requested amount!

Very satisfying experience and now a solid limit and a card that I may actually use more seriously. For those looking to grow with GE I just wanted to let you know that the reports are true and with patience and persistence they will certainly grow with you as purported.
Gardening spree went on hiatus but I think it paid off. Now back at it!

Re: Wal mart success!

Congrats GE cards can grow fast 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: Wal mart success!

Nice recon and congrats to you Smiley Happy

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

Re: Wal mart success!

I suggest to call the backdoor number instead of doing the online process. I called in a few days ago and went from 2800 to 5000. I might have gotten more but I only asked for 5000.

Congrats...good deal.   On a side note...I hate GE.  GE Refrigerators, GE Capital, GE Light bulbs...you name it.   GE = Glutton Ediots.
