Re: Does GEMB/GE Capital Bank Limit Store Cards?

Well it's interesting journey for me ... I do have good number of cards from GE as of now ...
Here we go with the list
PayPal master card - 3k
Gap store card - 2.5k
Walmart discover card - 1k
JCP - 250
Toy r us master card -500
TJRX - 400k
AE store card - 300
Amazon store card - 1k

I applied last 4 cards on same day and called each support line to get it approved.
CL is less for most cards, however I feel I can spend couple of bucks on each and maintain credit utilization optimal.
I love these cards as each one comes with good promotional offers and rewards which u can claim for a long run.
Penfed Rewards Visa Sigg (45K)/ Penfed Promise card (5K)/AMEX PRG(NPL)/AMEX ZYNC (NPSL)/AMEX GREEN(NPSL)/AMEX Startwood(9K)/AMEX COSTCO(5K)/AMEX EVERY DAY (10K)/AMEX HILTON HONOURS (8K)/CHASE SAPPHIRE PREFFERED(8K)/CHASE FREEDOM(4K)/AMEX Fidelity Investments(7.5K)/BOA Better Balance Rewards(5K)/BoA Travel Signature Card (10K)/BoA rewards cards (15K)/AMEX MACYS(6K)/Barclaycard Rewards(1.5K)/Salie Mea (5K)/DISCOVER IT(3K)/ DCU VISA Platinum Card(7.5K)/PAYPAL MASTER CARD(8K)/GAP(4.5K)/US Bank Flex Rewards (6K)/ Best Buy (4k)/Gymbore Visa card(6K)/ TARGET(600)/CHILDREN PLACE(900)/WALMART DISCOVER(8K)/TOY R US MASTER CARD(8K)/JCP(4K)/KOHLS(600)– Total 30 Cards

I currently have the GEMB CareCredit ($800 CL), Wal-Mart ($600) and JCP ($200 :smileymad: ), but I was denied by Meijer very shortly thereafter and I'm wondering whether GEMB places a cap on how many of their cards they will allow you to have. I'd very much like the Amazon.com store card for and its terrific no-interest deals for the holiday season, but wonder about whether GEMB cuts off potential applicants after a time.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Edited for additional question:

 

Also, who does GEMB/Amazon store card pull? I have read varying accounts where they stray from TU and pull EQ.


Maybe apping for too many in a short time will be denied, but total # of cards I don't think will be limited as long as you don't reach any internal CL wall they may have.

Re: Does GEMB/GE Capital Bank Limit Store Cards?

I have 7, ranging from $400 to $3000.  They are spread out over 3 years.  Apping for cards in a short period of time can raise a red flag with them and lead to cancellation of  or making inactive all GE cards.  They will not let you exceed a total credit limit of $100,000.

Barclays USAir World MC $8300 - DCU $7500 - USAA World MC $7000 - PayPal Extras MC (GE) $5500 - Chase Saphire Preferred $5000 - Discover It $5000 - Barclays Sallie May $2700 - Chase Freedom $1000 - Capital One $8500 (business) - store cards ranging from $500-$9500
