Re: GE Cards CLI

OP I have had GE accounts for a couple years now. from what I have seen personally on my accounts is that when util is high they wont budge. now if you call underwriters and talk to a decision maker (not a button pusher) you may have some luck. Last year my util was like above 50%. I have since paid off all my debt and only have 1000 balance on my sams discover right now... 2 weeks ago I got a total of almost 2k luv from GECRB. they like low util! keep us updated!

Re: GE Cards CLI

I know less than 10% is preferred but, from experience, how are they when your hanging in the 15-25% range?   And also, total utilization or... % of utilization of their CL?

 

My Walmart limit is $600. I made some purchases last month so a balance of $533. was posted when the statement closed. I plan to have a $0. - $50. balance on that card when I contact them for an increase after my 4th statement closes in mid Dec.   And of my 8 credit lines, probably only two will have balances. Most likely in the 20-25% range. I'll be trying for increases on other accounts that I opened in Aug too. Those accounts will also be in the $0. to $50. range.
