Re: Newb with question about Walmart CLI

You might try applying store card... it has the same 0% interest that the wal mart card has. Other than that; charging things on the card and paying it off in spring isn't a great idea especially since your available credit line is small.

Re: Newb with question about Walmart CLI

Actually, I have an Amazon store card.  Limit is about the same.  Would it be worth it to try and get a CLI on it?  It's not very much older than the Walmart card though.  I was really hoping to be able to get what I needed at one place, and I was hoping to have enough credit by Thanksgiving so I can catch the sales.

The man was so kind and nice.  I asked.  The man said it would take a few minutes to check on it, and put me on hold.  And the answer?  *drum roll*  Denied....will get a letter in the mail.  I guess that is to be expected.  I will definitely try back in December and see if I have better luck. 




thanks for the post sorry about the denial but, the card will grow with you! Best of luck!

Re: Newb with question about Walmart CLI

I got denied too recently, but will try again right before black friday. They have a tv for 60" tv for 688 and they sent me 2 0% offers, one for 18 months and one for 12 months. Of course I'd pay it off in 25% of that time but it'll be nice to get it for 0%

I opened my walmart in may CL $500 and got auto increased in Aug from $500-$900.. i called last month for another increase.. asked for $3k.. they only approved $2k... i'll take it... i asked a few times already to get it to $5k but no luck.. i think Imma ask one more time early december or maybe on black friday.... they are very good on increasing limits, but I think it also depends on your credit and who you speak with...




I also read on another board that you can request increases every 30 days with GE.... I'm not sure if it's true.... but I got an auto increase on my gap card on my 3rd statement (opened in july with limit of $200 to $1k)... then i called two weeks after and requested for 3k and got it....
