Im the opposite.  I only want CL on cards that I can actually use.  I personally do not want a GE store card for Old Navy with 10k CL.


Since I PIF, CL make very little difference to me. 10k on a store card or 10k on a VISA.  I just want the easiest route to more available credit to have more wiggle room in controlling util%. So if I can accomplish that w/ SP vs HP, that's would be my preference.

 

5/2012: 560 credit scores across the board and $500 secured CC
12/2014: 750+ scores across the board and $80k in revolving credit

Get those baddies removed!!!

Personally it's nicer to have a store account that you'll actually use, so get cards with GE that you'll actually use. Like I use my walmart card so I can get a higher CL reporting. I'll do it in about 2 weeks, I'm requesting $10,000. CL from $2000 =)    (people have gotten better increases) and this is still a LOT less than my highest credit limits.


total credit limits $108,400 Credit scores Ex 728 EQ 738 TU 758

Grats.  They probably pulled TU as your EQ would probably had been high enough for Visa version.


Thanks! Yea they pulled TU. I was suprise to even get a limit of $600 for a gas card. I only got accepted for 400 for Walmart :smileysad:. But I'm sure it will increase soon. :smileywink:
