Black friday 0% advice

I have a special for my walmart card for a 0% and am eyeing a tv but it wil max my card. I will call tommorow for a cli since I just paid my first statement but I think it may be too soon. I also am looking at a nikon camera but I could get that at amazon.

 

Advice to mazimize 0% offers? (these would be paid off in like 3 months but don't wanna worry about interests during that time)

 

Afraid to app for amazon card bc just got Barclays last month and you know how they are with new cards.

You should be okay calling walmart. My son literally only had a card that he was a authorized user reporting and he was approved for amazon and walmart a couple of weeks ago. He has not even used the card and called today and Walmart  doubled his limit so he could do the zero financing deal and the kid has no history.

I applied for a CLI on my walmart GE card after about 2 months and was denied. I do not believe they even pulled my credit. The only denial reason was not enough experience at current credit limit. When I called them on the phone they said nobody gets a CLI until afte the 4th statement is issued.

 

My 4th statement is due out this week!

Did you call the backdoor number on here? Walmart has been super easy for me. In the first week of having my card they upped my limit from $2000 to $5000 and they doubled my son's limit...soft pull

I called the backdoor number and they told me they could try, but suggested I wait for 4 months because they never see approvals before then. So, I didn't have him try.

Re: Black friday 0% advice

I called right when I got the card expecting for them to match my higher limits but no go. I tried to automated and got shot down. Hopefully they will say yes when I call tomm.
