I think GE is a great lender and they are great with CLI's, but I'm not going to reapply for this particular card with them. I think it sucks that they couldn't ink the deal and transfer the accounts, then issue new cards. It's unfortunate to the customers because Comenity didn't give any real notice to give people an opportunity to close out their accounts or get rid of remaining balances prior to closing everything next week. I for one, took advantage of a 3 year 0% financing deal and now they're shutting down accounts.
I just transferred my balance to an NFCU card and thanked my lucky stars that GE just recently upgraded my American Eagle card to the Visa version and gave me nearly a $2k CLI to go with it. Not to mention Zales just upped my limit from $3100 to $5500. At this point, I've made up for the lost credit limit with American Signature, and that's one less card.
