GE/AMERICAN EAGLE

i have a GE backed American Eagle card that i got in decemer, i have recieved to small CLI to date which is still pretty cool. i really need to start improving my current CL so i can breed higher limit prime cards. i was wondering if anyone knew just about how high i could get this card to go? i know i can request CLI every 4months so im hoping it will grow rather quickly. i also seen where a poster stated that with GE cards you could actually start getting CLI every two months by calling an talking to a Credit Analyst, does anyone know if this is true also?

Re: GE/AMERICAN EAGLE

With regard to the actual "value" of the card, my friend has the same one with a $12,000 limit. Yes, it is true that you can request a CLI every 4 months. GE is pretty good with increases. Just treat the card well and PIF each month; they like to see that you are using the card regularly

Re: GE/AMERICAN EAGLE

I had one with a measly 124 limit.   Paid one late.  A year later, did a CLI LUV button, and increased to 125. lol

 

A year later, did a CLI via phone Soft pull,  increased to 400.  I have never ever used this card every since I got it so this might be the reason I don't get any increases.

Re: GE/AMERICAN EAGLE

when i applied i only got store card but with a 400 limit. 

the person at the counter was like thats really good. 

i just had to laugh to myself. 

i know its not much but its whatever. 

i spent somewhere around 800 dollars there last year. 

from what i read its a soft pull anyway  

in a few months when all this new credit is older ill hit the luv button.
