600 to 4600 ? Did you run a ton of  $$ through it ?


I only use this card for booze at Sam's club!  Smiley Happy Maybe $100 per month - max...

 

Two steps, first CLI was from $600 to $1600. Next from $1600 to $4600 where it sits today. I do not need this card but I keep it open for the free TU FICO.

 

I think in three months, I can try for another CLI. Goal is $10k for this card.

 


Actually, i app'd for the Walmart card twice before and didnt get that one either... i should probably try apping in the store... for some reason i get the feeling that your chances are better if you app in a store as opposed to online or by phone..

Goal: 700 and an Amex Card!

Why would you ever need a $10k limit on a Walmart card? Sams Club doesn't sell Dom Pérignon AFAIK.

AMEX SPG $20K | Citi TY Premier $20k | PenFed PlatRewards $25k | Barclay Arrival+ 40k | Chase Freedom $20k | BofA AMEX $15k | Discover IT $10k | | NASA Platinum-Advantage $10k | CapOne Quicksilver $10k | Amazon Card $10k | NASA PLOC $30k @ 8.25% | Joined myFICO 6/12 with a 540 FICO & today I'm over 750!

Wow, are they auto CLI or did you also ask/counter offer ? Impressive

 


I called in at 4 months on each CLI.  I always ask for $10k and let them counter... Maybe next time....  Smiley Tongue

Yes, this worked for me. When I app'd at the store, they asked me for my dl as well as a credit card that they swiped. Funny, it took like 3 seconds to approve. My "opening" line was $600 and it was the Discover. I thought when the card got here, I might have a little better CL but it was the same.

 

Funny, the card I gave them to swipe at app time was my Amex BCE, at that time it had a CL of $22,200 and zero balance.  And they gave me $600!  Smiley Mad

Re: Cards You Just Can't Seem To Obtain!

I have an amex, chase, citi, and discover. But the US bank visa signature + seems to be impossible to get....

My ultimate credit wish,
a JP Morgan Palladium card
