OMG I got approved for Walmart!!!!

I got the 7-10 day message found the number here in the forum to call in and they verified some info and BAM I got $300 limit. It's not much but it's a start since I'm rebuilding. I thought I'd get a TV for my room and pay it off when I get statement. Does anyone know when increases are given?

Re: OMG I got approved for Walmart!!!!

My Sams card started at $300 and is now at $4100.  Took about 4 years and I didnt ask for a CLI.  I dont remember hoiw often they did it.  LOL I did use to keep it near the limit but when Ifinally got a clue and took it to PIF, they almost doubled my CL.  Please dont follow my bad example but they are generous with CLs.  I wouldnt ask though.  Wait and see what happens in 6 months.

Gotcha....GEMB is CLI friendly!!!  :smileyhappy:

 

I have two of their cards.  Lowes gave me $400 initial, called immediately & got 1500, 3 mos later, hit the luv button & got another 1400!

Care credit gave me 2k, card saw some, but not a ton of action & got a cld last Nov to 1200, called this past May...back up ... got 2600

 

The bank likes you to use the card...but has no problem when you PIF before statements.
