GE CLI Question

Here is a somewhat unique situation... 

 

I got a Discount Tire/Car Care One card on 10/29 and my first statement cut on 10/31. 

This means my 4th statement is going to cut sometime this week, however it will only be 3 months time. 

 

So the question is... 

 

GE CLI's... 4 statements after account opening or 4 months? 


Walmart Discover ($5000) - Amazon ($5500) - Cap1 Cash Rewards ($2000) - Meijer ($5000) - Discover More ($1800) - Car Care One ($2100) - Amex Delta Skymiles ($2000) - Citi Thank You Preferred ($2000) - Chase Freedom ($500) - Sam's Club, GE ($1237?)

Based on what I've read and experienced, 4 statements is the sweet spot. Just realize that this 4 statement is a guideline, and not a rule. They can still deny a CLI! But you might as well give it a go! You have nothing to lose Smiley Very Happy
