I charged $400 for the past two statements... and left $40 bal on first statement and $200 on second statement... i know its kinda high but it worked...


Did you PIF each statement?

 

So far on my $150 limit walmart card I have been to wal-mart twice. I charge about $30, then paid $30 online. Second time I went, I charge about $25 and then went home and paid $15. I was hoping that charging up to 30%, then paying down to 8% multiple times in a billing cycle would get me a CLI.

 

Do you think that having a 40% util helped in getting the CLI?

I think the usage and leaving a balance helped a lot...but that's just me.... I requested a cli on the first statement and was denied... I did the same things with my chevron gas card... I left $50 each two statements and also got an increase from $400 to $700.... Both cards were increased the same day i believe since i check my account everyday..

use and pay, is all I have noticed they care about, I have even left balances on the cards and gotten CLI's just make more than the minimum payment. Don't max out the card I have let over 60% of my credit limit report and pay it down, I love GE Amazon card,  over $25 is free shpping, over $!50 is free interest for 6 months. the $150 is usually the minimum I  use the card for, then make more than the minimum payment on the card each paycheck, GE doesn't care if you pay more than once a month. 

 

Amazon Card  started at $900  Jan 2011 now   $2500.one autoCLI at 6 months I was scared of the Luv button.  

Walmart Card  started at $600  Nov 2011  now $1700  

 


Cards: Chase Southwest 20k & CSP 10k & Freedom 6.6k & Amtrak 4.6k, FNBO DISC 14.9k Oregon Duck 5k, & AMEX BCP 15k & Hilton Surpass 7.5k & Delta Gold 6k & Zync NPSL, Sally Mae5k Sams Club MC 10k, Paypal Extras MC 6k, CapOne QS 2.5k, QS 750, Amazon 3.9k, Walmart 4.5k, Citi Simplicity 7k, HHonors Gold 1k (moved 5k CL to Simplicity), Discover IT 6.5k and a nice stack of store cards.
