This is the best forum anywhere, thanks to everyone for the wonderful advice! I was approved for a Walmart store card CL $400 & Amazon store card CL $600. I am so excited to be in with GE! My question is .... I want to buy new tires for my car from Walmart. Do you think if I call Walmart backdoor number I will be approved for a CLI!
Scores are around 650 across the board

Also as an after thought, I think I am blacklisted from Cap1. Is there anything I can do?

Never hurts to ask, they may give you an increase, especially if you tell them you are going to but something on the card. You already took a hard pull, all they can say is no.

Never hurts to try but I doubt they will extend additional credit. It appears like too many recently opened new accounts in such a short time, plus inquiries may be another issue.

That was the reason I was thinking of not even asking. I got carried away with the comenity cards. I am in the garden now. Next app spree I want to be for good prime cards with rewards.
