Did mini app spree on two gemb cards i've been wanting. Approved for the Amazon Store Card at $800, App'd for the Paypal MC got a message that said call in. I'm assuming it has to do with verification, any idea what info they need?

More then likely. The first time I applied they turned me down, the second I got a Smart connect account. both were instant. It looks like a good sign. Keep us updated.

They are good for CLI every 4 months. Be good to them they will be good to you. keep up the good work.

called today, approved for smart connect. Only 300 though....
I was also approved initially for the Smart Connect at $300. I set that as my backup funding source, for my PayPal MC Debit Card. Then used it fairly heavily (multiple payments every month).
Gemb allows you to request CLIs every 4 months (IIRC). But, they gave me an auto CLI after about 6 mo, to $900 (with heavy use). Then I stopped using it, and was stuck at $900 for about a year. Then, even without having used it for 6 months, they finally approved a $2k CLI, when I did the manual CLI request.
As always, YMMV.

Really? I've had Walmart for a year..no auto..think I should take it a step further and request a cli ? Or would you just save the inquiry?

Absolutely every 4 months you should be good for an increase with a manual CLI from the web site. It should be a soft pull has been for me.

When the time comes for a CLI from SmartConnect. Log into PayPal select card details and then select Spending Power.
