JC Penneys CLI!

I've had the card for six years, and started out with a $300 limit. Just this year, in March it automatically went up to $500 and just today I went to pay online and noticed it went to $900!!! Whoop whoop!

Re: JC Penneys CLI!

Congrats!  I had a Penney's card back in 2000.  It was one of my first cards to establish credit.  The limit was stuck at $300 for a long time.  In 2004, I sued GE/JCPenney for reporting inaccurate info to the CRA's and sending my account to a collection agency.  I made a couple of thousands from them and got my account to list Paid As Agreed with no lates.

 

I hope you have much better experience with them.  I don't carry any GE products anymore.

Congratulations!! :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy:

 

And in a case of me looking your gift horse in the mouth, given how long you've had the account without an increase I wish they had been a lot more generous with their credit line increase.

Maybe they were not using the card enough or have a low income. (neither of which is to be ashamed of)

Get a myFICO recommended credit card
