Re: Just got a Walmart card

through the automated system, or did you talk to a CSR? When I app'd my cap1 hadn't reported yet and now that it has I'd kind of like to see if they'd up my limit a little since I have a $3000 limit reporting.

Hmm, this has me wondering if i should possibly app for another GE backed card? Thoughts?


Wait they allready gave you the $150 CL,  if you apply now you will either get denied or another $150 limit, wait 3-6 months after you have made a few payments on the walmart card, and then AP you will most likely get a better CL than you would of if you got a card now and got your first CLI on that card. Build the relationship, After a while you will app and get cards from GE with  800-2000 CL's.  Start slow and build it.  

 

 My latest GE backed card came with a $2000 CL.

Re: Just got a Walmart card

I applied online Monday and received a $600.00 CL.  How long should I wait before requesting a CLI?  Currently I'm setting reminders to do that for most of my cards every 4 months.

EX 638 (Lender 9/1) TA 650(Walmart 9/1) EQ 655 (FICO - 9/17)
Goal - 700 Club in '13!!!

My Wallet - Cap 1 - $300. Cap 1 - $750. Orchard - $950.
New as of 8/29 - Target - $3000. Barclay's - $2000. Merrick - $1000. Walmart $600. And as of 9/22 - JCP $200.
