Re: GE Upgrades

I got my Wmt Discvr upgrade after two full years.
However, I NEVER paid late, consistently asked for CLIs. Started at $800 May 2010.. Got to $2,400 w the store, then May 2012 upgraded to Discover with $2500 limit. Scores were around 640, but 676 according to a GECRB SP in April.
Then like last week, I called them and got a CLI from $2500 to $5000!
Same time frame/pmt history to get my BR Visa, which now has a $7k limit.
Orginally, my BR card had a measly $400 limit, then went to $700, then $900, then $1400, then $2k, then $3k when it got upgraded and last week, I got 'er up to $7,000!! Yayuh! These cards DO upgrade. Stay patient and ALWAYS pay on time no matter what!

Re: GE Upgrades

The Chevron/Texaco does not seem to upgrade, ever.  It might have years ago, but the CSR's I have called on three different occasions have indicated no path to upgrade, must be a new app.  Read the horror stories on the forum about people trying to do just what the CSR's recommended and ending up with 2 store cards accounts.  Very frustrating.

Re: GE Upgrades

Thanks!! I bet you can do the same!
Baron- I was beginning to wonder if it would! Meh, it's weird that I had the BR Visa when I apped for my Chevron and still got just the storw card :-/

Yeah, I applied for the Dillard's Amex, since I already have the Dillard's store card per a CSR, and wound up with a denied App and HP "application already approved" ...still baffled by that one!!
I'd rather sit it out then waste a hard pull!!

On another note, at least my Chevron limit is at $1,500!

I'm a littl ADD obviously haha.

Re: GE Upgrades

I've had my WM store card for 9 months with a 1,500CL. Anyone ever get the upgrade offer before the yearmark?

Re: GE Upgrades

I'd work on getting that CL over 2k LS, then maybe you can get an upgrade...
