That would shock me if $10k is max... that doesn't come close to Home Depot!


YMMV


12,500 on my Lowes, I'll go for more in a few months and see what happens

Card opened in 2005 with $5k I believe and charged $3700 that day I think. after 6 months they gave auto CLI in the $9k range (original charge was on 12 months $0 and most months I paid nothing, until end and PIF before 0% ended) I think at that point it was auto CL to $12,400 if I remember correctly and then it sat unused, they sent letter saying had not shopped in a while please come in, here is a 10% but if you don't shop within next 3 months we will close the account. Went in and bought paper towels I think it was... when statement arrived it had note on statement saying congrats we are increasing the CL to the $15,900! I never asked for increases.

Re: GEMB MAXIMUM CREDIT LIMIT!!!!

Although not specifically directed towards me - for questions on usage...

 

As I said a few messages ago my Lowes is at $12,500 - DW has a Lowes at $10,000 - we have not tried for any CLI on her card for quite a while - We run $15,000 or so a year through the pair of them on 0% promos.

 

For Home Depot - DW has $20K limit and mine is $16,500 -  between the two cards we run $25-$30 through them each year -- again on 0% promos.

 

On all four cards we just keep "recycling" Promo balances - never paid a dime on interest. We also play Depot and Lowes off each other - it seems one will often have a 12-18 months promo going when the other doesn't. They will match the competitors Promo in store! Because of the Promos we generally have balances ranging from $2,000 - $10,000 on each card most all of the time.

 

So I guess for us that would be heavy spending on both Depot and Lowes - I don't know for sure, but I would imagine that has something to do with the limits we've ended up with. I hope some of that info is useful...

Not bad at all. I use Lowes more around here but we have HD also. Who issues the HD card?
