Care Credit $500
No luck with any increases. Funny Care Credit will approve my current profile for $500 but when I try a CLI it uses my same derogs as the reason for denial. I was going to close the Walmart, but figured the free FICO score was nice plus last time I got gas using the card (with the 5 cents off) made it 17 cents cheaper than anywhere else.

Walmart DC 12k
Ebates Visa 12k
Dillard's AMEX 7.5k
Have been thinking about closing Dillard's as there is not one local to me and I don't use the card much. To get CLI's above 10k required calls to Credit Solutions. Dillard's is stuck at 7.5k, but since I only use it every 2-3 mos, I haven't bothered with trying to get a increase.

I have one from GE
Gap Silver Visa. Opened in 2010 at $2.5k, now stands at $8k (Funnily enough, I SP CLI online to 4k, then immediately called Credit Solutions, where they doubled the limit to 8k).
I hardly never use the card anymore since I stopped shopping at the Gap/Old Navy/BR, but I do keep it around for Piperlime purchases here and there.

Sams DC $15k
Walmart DC $12k
Call credit solutions for better results.
Is calling credit soultion and talking to a live person, a hard pull?
Its soft pull. I think Care Credit may be hp online and on phone.

old navy 600
banana republic 300
gecrb has been very slow to increase limits. Any suggestions?
Credit Solutions works for many people (not for me...I've only had luck wth them once). GE loves heavy use and some sort of balance to post, however. I've been able to use LUV button for CLIs on all cards, except Amazon. Credit Solutions worked once for JCP.
JCP - $1400
Wally - $700
Amazon - $700
Care Credit is at $10200, after a very nice CLI, but I think they're a different animal than the GECRB CCs.
