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...

Congrats I was gonna attempt another call after being denied via back door.  I am still on the fence though!

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.

My results were reverse yours.  Backdoors said no automated said yes.  All things credit confirmed YMMV yet again!  Congrats!
