Lowe's CLI

I just went to my Lowe's account and clicked the credit increase button. It went from $6500 to $9500 immediately. That was my first GE increase without calling Credit Solutions! A $3000 increase using the luv button isn't too shabby! Especially since it was a soft pull!

Nicely done and very nice bump for sure!  Mine got an auto CLI to $11K just last month I believe.  Comes in handy with upcoming home improvement projects with 0% financing.

Re: Lowe's CLI

Nice cli. I've had my lowes card for about 7 months and have pressed the luv button twice now. First time was right after 2 months ($500 -$1000) then again last month ($1000 - $5000). Gotta love GE.

Idk what to do with my $12k lowe's. it's been 7 months since I got a cli, but I don't really want a cli on this account.

I use it for cleaning stuff and pif.

Congrats!!

 

GE/Lowes has been very generous to me.  And if you happen to have one of the other "big box" home improvement cards, such as Home Depot or Ace, you can play one against the other to get even more. 

 

If GE/Lowes gives you a CLI, CALL the other, and let them know that you got $XXXX from Lowes, can they exceed that?  When they do, and they likely will, then at some point later, CALL GE/Lowes to get another CLI, tell them the other gave you $XXXX and see if they will match/exceed.   My guess is this has a finite limit as to how many times you can do it, and in what time frame, but it's worth a shot to get higher limits. 

EX = 849 EQ = 850 TU = 850 as of 07/2017

Re: Lowe's CLI

Well, son of a gun...just went to my Lowes account, hit the button and bam, $650 to $1650.  

 

I've had the card for 4 months.
