Well, they bumped me from $300 to $900.  I heard the card grows with you.  So I will see, don't need the large credit line right now.  But will be needing a riding mower later on down the line.  

 

I guess something was better than nothing :smileyhappy:.  


they really do grow. 

after 4 months of having the card not even using it went from 800 to 3k. (that's what i asked for because i wasnt shooting for the moon) 

told them i wanted a couple flat screen tv's.

 

you can ask every 4 statement cuts from what i read.

Re: Lowes Card...

Just thought I'd tell everyone my experience today.

We're looking to buy some appliances in the next month or so (likely black friday)

We just purchased a home 2 months ago

I applied online for the Lowe's card, was approved for a cl of $1500.

I called the "back door #" (i don't think this is really a backdoor #), went through the automated system and asked for an increase of $5,000 and was denied and told they would send me a letter.   I called right back and asked to speak with a rep.

Rep basically just asked how much I wanted, I said $5k, they countered with $3k.

Should be good enough!

 

My husband will likely apply for the Home Depot card in case we find better deals there.
