Holy Heck..GE Backdoor # works!!! FINALLY CLI

I have 2 GE Cards.  I've tried to get increases throught e request increase link online..no go...after 3 attempts I tried this number and received the following:

 

Banana Republic Visa (2,000-->4,000)

Amazon Store Card (700--->2,500)

 

I'm still learning on what to ask as far as an increase.  I don't want to seem desperate or greedy because I'm not, I just want the boost! I use both these cards often so I am thrilled not to have to now go and make 3 payments a month!

 

Thanks for the info on the number! Feeling pretty good.  Baby steps...

I had never used the backdoor so I wasn't sure what to expect but he took his time to review both accounts (1 by 1) and was super nice!  I thought it was great that they took the time to review. Whenever I received the denial from the link, it stated a score from March 7th....so, this is at least more "here and now" review.
