Just two;

 

Walmart

Belks (I haven't even used in the 6 months that I have had it, but they were nice enough to give me a CLI from $200 to $800.  I only got it to have $0 balance and reporting.)

 

I have heard that once you get one card from them and do well with it, they will easily open another card with them.  I am waiting for the Walmart to turn into a Discover card.  I am hoping that will happen after the next statement, which is the 6 month mark and that is today or tomorrow.  I am a bit anxious about it as I would have preferred they had given it to me straight away. 


I spoke with Underwriting and asked how long to convert.  I was told 12 mos- it wasn't possible to convert sooner.  YMMV

I called GECRB about my Sam's Club card, I wanted to know if they could convert it to Discover, they said with Sam's if I wanted a Discover I would have to apply for it, and it's not possible to convert the store card to Discover. Have they autoconverted anyone?

Re: How many GECRB accounts do you have??

They told me that about my Walmart card, then I called back and was given a different answer.  My sister had a Walmart card and it was converted to a Discover after 6 months.

It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.....
Always follow these rules: Only take a HP for a new account. Always use the best rewards card for that reward category. Don't close a card unless you know you really should. Never use more than 35% of a credit limit. Recon as much and as best you can. Use the introductory period to the best advantage. Get the signup bonus. Whenever possible PIF or balance transfer so you pay less in interest. Never give an excellent rating when it is actually the norm. Always look for a discount as more is always better.
Always accept candy from strangers because they have the best candy or from people you know have good candy.

American Eagle

Dillards

Shop NBC Smiley Embarassed

 

I need to get this under control. LOL I'd axe the bottom three but they keep giving me CLI's albeit small ones like $100-$200. Wait...AE hasn't given me anything since that $150 increase. In 2013, I might just close them out. I don't think I need this many store cards. I had a JCP card years ago, but closed it.
