Rut-Ro....GEMB CLD everywhere

and I figured it out.  We charged our European vacation and it hit the CRA's.  That made us look highly utilized!  The interest check from our annuity should be here in time to pif that card before it reports again.

 

So far, GEMB has hit is TWICE this week.  Yesterday I received a CLD notice from Wal-Mart....for $100.  Not that I shop a bunch at Wal-Mart but I did buy a lot of plastic ware to redo the basement organization project. 

 

Guess I'll stick to cash or checks or NFCU Visa.

I had decreases a couple of months ago to both my Gap and my Chevron.  I figured they were going to reduce some more but they haven't *crosses fingers*  Do you have any other GEMB besides Walmart?

Re: Rut-Ro....GEMB CLD everywhere

My Dillard's Store card received a cli on April 6th of $500 to $2100.  I noticed this week that they chopped me to $100.  I rarely shop at Dillards anyway, twice per year on average.  Macy's is right next door and I prefer their coupons and sales....

So far I'm still safe (Ikea and Old Navy).  I was just waiting for them to knock down the Ikea card -- esp since I just purchased about 900 bucks of furniture and stuff on it, but so far so good.

I've been on the receiving end of their hatchet since late November.

 

CareCredit  5500> closed

Care credit   500> closed

Lowes visa cld 4000 to 3090 (gave 100 over my balance as I was remodeling kitchen)

Walmart  cld 550 to 124

 

As soon as GEMB started this, the others, BoA, Discover, Chase and RBS followed suit though not as drastic.  But Hooters gave me a cli of 300 on my one year anniversary!!  :smileytongue:

Trishco, how long had your CareCredit accounts been idle?  I have a $5,000 CL with them that's been idle for about 3 mo. and I noticed they are pulling a soft every month.  I'm wondering if I should use them for new glasses or something I could PIF in order to get off their radar.
