I don't know about you all but that number just seems SO SILLY attached to anything that would follow after GE!

$85k is more than I managed with Amex in the hay days of free credit.

But after working at a store that used GE, I'm still shocked each time I see the credit cards and lines OP has with GE.... I think I will submit you to Guiness books of world records with most credit line with GE!


I have one GE card at 6k and I keep thinking about hitting the luv button or calling the back door number but I don't want the banks that I actually use to deny me credit increses due to that card having too much.

I would not worry about other banks denying you unless you have $20+k credit lines and are putting $10k yearly income.

Re: GECRB has no max limit!!!

Lol.. It's not a big deal that they denied me a cli as I mentioned previously.
All I can do from this point is to keep paying my bills on time and get my FICO higher :-)

Im anxious to know the reasons for denial though! I wonder if it will be something income related!
Eh, we shall seeeee

Re: GECRB has no max limit!!!

Btw, it's worth noting that many of my GE accts...
Dillard's, JCP, Lowe's... Have been opened since like 2007... So a pretty long time. I didn't get these limits overnight. Ive simply always had an aggressive credit-building strategy in place since I was old enough to get cred :-)

You are very agressive, that is for sure.  I'm sure it helps that you have quite a few accounts with GE and they are easy to get CLIs with Chase, AMEX and the such move quite a bit slower.

 

by my account you have right at 130K in credit lines, is this accurate?

Re: GECRB has no max limit!!!

It's in the $130k-145k range....

My Amex even grew pretty quickly...
Got $3500 initially, then got the 3xcli to $10.5k on the 61st day. I know not to ask for more than $25k after six more months! Lol
I'm not even bothering asking Chase for a cli; they like to do hps, and my Freedom card is maxed haha!
