GE Money


I have 2 GE Money cards, one for Old Navy and one for Paypal. When I apply for the Old Navy card 5 months ago, they give me the rewards card (not the Visa) because was my first credit experience. They give me $300 credit limit, the next month I apply for Paypal and they give me $400. Now Paypal increase my limit with $900. I want to know If I have more probabilities to be approved with the Old Navy VIsa?

Re: GE Money

Seems like the upgrade opportunities are random with GE. The offer will pop up in your account when they feel you're ready, unfortunately

Usually after a year they do an upgrade.

Re: GE Money

I have the paypal one and although they never increased my limit without asking, I did call in and they increased it from $400 to $1900. It's all automated so I'm sure the old navy card would have the same option. They just ask for the new limit you would like (I asked for $5k) and then your yearly income and then they said they couldn't approve me for $5k but countered with a total of $1.9k. It wouldn't hurt to call in and see if they system has an option for CLI.
