I have an American Eagle store card through GEMB.
I requested a CLI online & was denied.
Is there a number I can call to get more info as to why they denied & possibly have them reconsider?

They will send you a letter in the mail advising why.
How long have you had the card? Has it been at least 4 statements since your last CLI?

I just got one with a $150 limit. I bought my GF some underwear then paid it off Maybe I will buy her a bra for christmas from Aerie/American Eagle (Its a present for her, for me ) then let it sit for a few more months. What I dont understand is that GEMB also issues my Walmart card which has a $1200 limit. Why they gave me a $150, I dont know.
Hopefully WFNNB doesnt play this game too. I have a $710 limit with Victorias Secret, and just got an Express Card via pre approval on the Express website during checkout. I will see in a few days when I get the card....

I don't get it either.
They denied a CLI on my AE store card today but just yesterday, I was approved for a Walmart store card with a limit of $700.
The AE store card is at $400, btw.

AE tends to be stingy with credit lines. I started with 700 and ran about 1k through. I hit the cli button every month and always declined for not having experence withe current credit line. Then one day the gave me a 250 cli bringing me to 950.

I started at 150, they gave me a cli when I asked for one to 600 at the 5th statement then I carried a small balance for two months and they just upped it to 1100 when I clicked after 4 more statements. I think they like a small balance.
