GECRB CLIs!!!

I haven't had a CLI on my GE cards for the last few months because a "zombie" debt had popped up on my CRAs the beginning of the year. Since the debt in question aged off a couple of months ago and my reports are all clean of CO/CAs, I decided to try again. The results:

 

JC Penney - $2500 -> $2800

Dillard's Amex - $4200 -> $6000

 

Forward progress on soft CLIs again!!! Smiley Very Happy

Yes, I have two GE cards.

 

Sorry about your denial, but how long did you wait between requests? As I understand, you need to wait a minimum of 4 statement cycles between requests. Oh, and I didn't talk to a live person; it was automated over the phone.

lol dont be sorry. 

i got denied by the system and then reconned next day with a live person. 

i apped and got the card 7/28 never made a purchase until 9/12 paid in full 9/25. 

starting limit was 800 store card asked for a cli to 3k. the rep said she would forward to credit something cant remember now. but anyways they would send me a letter with their decision. logged in next day into my account (ocd check all my accounts everyday) and said aval credit was 3k =) 

 

thats why i was saying talking to a live person really does help sometimes. 

i called ae the same day but the rep denied me straight out. im sure same reason though lack of current limit experience. (i thik its actually a couple weeks older)

Ok, gotcha. I remember reading about that a few days ago. Smiley Happy

 

Yes, that's a nice increase for you, as well. This is one of the things that I love about GE -- the cards tend to grow very nicely over time. My Dillard's card started out at $700 back in April 2011, and now it's at $6000. It feels great to have "big girl" limits. Smiley Happy Even better when they have low or $0 balances!!!

Re: GECRB CLIs!!!

Congrats on the increases! It sounds like ge has been good to a lot of us lately. Btw I would love to have a Dillard's Amex! Especially because I got denied for zync 3 weeks ago. Do you happen to remember your scores when you got approved? Gecrb Amex > no Amex Smiley Happy
