WALMART CLI.......????

I got my Walmart card in March 08 with 300.00. I know you can get an increase every 4 months but does a balance have to report each month to be eligible. I know a balance didnt report 5/2008 and im thinking not this month either. I use the card at least once a month but think im paying it off before it reports (not intentional, lol). Will i still be eligible for an increase next month?
 
 
Thanks in advance!!!!

You don't have to use the card in order to ask for CLI.

Re: WALMART CLI.......????

CCC's don't care (probably don't even notice) if a balance reports. That's strictly a scoring phenomenon.

They might care about whether you carry a balance, and they get some money off of you. My personal feeling is that if they require me to give them interest to make them a good card, they're headed for the shredder. But I realize that it's different when you're starting or restarting.

Any experience out there to say whether carrying a balance on WalMart helps with CLI's?

I'm sure that's what haulingthescoreup meant, as well.  The two of you are on the same page here, and her advice still applies. Smiley Wink

IF I'm going to micro manage my Walmart card for that $125 CLI every 4 months I think its time for the white jacket.

My experience with the WalMart card is that they will give you a minimal (~$100) CLI after your fourth statement cuts.

That being said, they do not generate statements unless a balance is on your account when the statement period ends.

I didn't like those rules, so I canned them.
Here we go again...
