Oh, I see. The UW's of Walmart card. I am going to make the call tomorrow and let everyone know.
I'm actually going through old posts to see how much people have gotten from this backdoor number.
A lot of people say they felt like they could've gotten more, but only asked for a meager amount and not the amount
they actually wanted.
How should I go about asking? Do you just call and say:
"Hi, my names ??????? and my account number is ########. I'm looking to get a credit increase."
Do you tell them or do they ask how much you want?
I always feel stupid because let's say I want 3.5 to 4.5k for an increase.
Do I say, "I'd like to get three and a half thousand" or "four and a half thousand?"
"I want my limit to be a total of 5k"
I guess I'll give it a shot and keep everyone posted that is curious to know what ends up happening.

Call and say you'd like to ask for a credit limit increase they will ask your account number and some verification questions and then will ask what limit you wanted.
The way I said it was twentyfive hundred for the limit. And like you said - I also feel I should have asked for more haha.
