Transferring CL from one GE card to another

I have a Rooms-to-Go card with a 6K CL that I haven't used in 3 years and a CareCredit card with a $3.7K CL.  Is it possible to transfer part of my CL from the CareCredit to the RtG card?  Also, does GE allow product changes?

They don't allow PC or credit line transfers.
BUT it's fairly easy to get a cli. Just callCredit Solutions, ask for a big cli, then if approved-close the other account

Re: Transferring CL from one GE card to another

FYI Care Credit does hard pulls for CLI, at least in my experiences.

WM TransUnion- 650 (6/2014) Credit Sesame Experian- 691 (6/2014) Credit Karma TransUnion- 665 (6/2014)
Amex Zync/UNICORN- NPSL/Capital One Venture One Pro -$7,000/NFCU Cash Rewards- $7,500/NFCU NavChek- $5,000/SouthWest Airlines- $5,000/Capital One Quicksilver Platinum- $3,000/Wal-Mart Discover- $6,000/Bill Me Later- $2,200/JCP- $4,700/Discover IT- $500/Care Credit -$2,300/Old Navy Visa- $2,000/New York & Company - $1,000/Capital One -$800

I see.  Do they do soft pull CLIs?

 

Do store cards report differently than regular credit cards?  I mean, do you get a "boost" is your score from having a store card or two as opposed to having nothing but regular credit cards?

Fico doesn't differentiate.
Ime, no scoring model can really tell the difference, but a credit analyst can tell the difference, or at least they claim to.
Carecredir does HP for cli.
Typically, GE will just sp ya for a cli, but it's always a safe bet to ask. Ive had just about every GE card except the two you mentioned... Lol I had $10k+ limits on like 8-9 diff cards with them. Closed some, reduced the lines on others.

RTG and CareCredit generally pull Ex for the CLI's.
