I have been having the same problems as well. My JCP started at 200 in 2001 then went down to 124 in 2003 where it sat for many years. In 2008, I started using it and it gradually got to 1000. I am stuck at 1000 when all my other GE accounts are 3000.MY JCP got more use than the other accounts but still very minimal increases even after calling the JCP back door number.

 

I had a few friends that used to work for JCP and they were laid off. I have a feeling that JCP will be going out of business in the next few years.  Good thing I've heard this card can be used at Riteaid and CVS.

Re: JC PENNEY CLI DENIED ON THE 6TH STATEMENT

This card seems to be the slacker in the GE family of cards. I got this card in 1997 with a $188 cl. Over the years there were no auto clis and whenever I requested one, it was denied. In 2011 I requested a bump up to $1000-denied, but countered for a $200 bump. So I had a $388 cl. :smileyindifferent: A year later, I requested a cli to $1000 again-approved!! Then-and I couldn't believe my eyes-I logged on about amonth ago and saw that I'd been given an auto increase to $1800!! :smileysurprised:Compare that to the Walmart Discover I obtained in 9/12 with an $800 cl which was bumped to $8000 two months later at my request. I don't get JCP. I think I might get rid of it if something else catches my eye, but not another store card.

Re: JC PENNEY CLI DENIED ON THE 6TH STATEMENT

Weird because JCP is the only account that I could get an auto CLI.  I opened the account in September with 300 and I called in December and they increased it to 1500.  I have Walmart since September with a 1000 CL and have tried and they won't give me an increase.  However I also opened an Amazon store card with a 1200 CL AFTER Walmart declined me.  So I don't know what the deal is with GE.

I think with GE cards the company who the card is with (JCP, Walmart, Ashley Furn..etc) sets the credit requirements and limits. I think JCP is just stricter. I've tried everything. I done heavy usage/PIF, light usage/PIF, small usage/carry a balance, heavy usage/carry a balance, moderate usage every month and PIF or carry a balance, I always paying more than the minimum payment though.

 

I do not get how to get an increase past $1000. I called the backdoor last month with a zero balance after moderate usage and PIF. I asked for 3000 to match my other GE cards and I told them I wanted to buy a new couch. Honestly, I just wanted the higher limit. I was told no...So JCP will sit unused for a while and then I will call back for a CLI. If they weren't my oldest account they would be gone!
