I was somewhat back in good graces when my Dillards Amex went from $2100 on $2200 CL to $0. and only AFTER the Credit Report showed it, not GE... I applied for CLI when GE showed $0 and was declined, went back 30 or so days later and was instant to $3500 which then went to $2350 CL a month or so later so what ever that card is now closed... HOWEVER that was actually before I started my APP Spree stuff....

 

I do kind of feel like somewhere around 4-6 accounts in a couple day period is some kind of wall but I bet someone with an 800 score could prove me wrong on that! but I saw less success after 4 or so apps... but then 4-6 months later i was able to do another 4 or so... 

Util. is usually HUGE thought when it comes to GE approving CLI and if you are good and your util is not terrible when the account hits 3-4 months it's VERY often the one and only CLI you get without asking and they (more recently) have been HUGE CLI that I have never seen with GE... I of course had my CR locked when I hit those 3-4 month period and then when I did unlock little later and request my util was higher... they don't seem to care much about my other util... it's just with them! and no not always when util is just with them just leaning towards my experience...

Hello, and welcome to the forums! Smiley Happy

 

GE stands for General Electric. They make more than dishwashers and microwaves these days; they also provide financial services such as consumer credit. You may also see them refered to by their acronym, GECRB, which stands for General Electric Capital Retail Bank.

3 of 4 my cards dont't really exist as such no mag strips.  

 

GE/Sam's club took my ID down to Sam's club and they reissued my membership card as the "credit version"

GE/Amazon is a  piece of laminated paper...  Amazon knows about the card and made it a payment choice. 

GE/PayPal MC plus is currently just linked to my paypal account,  ( card is in the mail). 

 

GE/Walmart actually does exist and is a real looking credit card. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cards: Chase Southwest 20k & CSP 10k & Freedom 6.6k & Amtrak/Freeom 4.6k, FNBO DISC 25.1k Oregon Duck 5k, & AMEX BCP 15k & Hilton Surpass 7.5k & Delta Gold 6k & Zync NPSL, Fidelity AMEX 12k Sally Mae5.5k Sams Club MC 10k, Paypal Extras MC 7.5k, CapOne Venture 15k, QS 2.5k, QS 750, Amazon 5.9k, Walmart 10k, Citi Simplicity 7k, Discover IT 15.5k and a nice stack of store cards.
