Thats what I was going to go for $2,000 on all my cards and see what happens..On my CC L they are LOW so anything would help.

Re: Walmart, $500 ...... :/

I started off with 250.00 about 2 years ago....I now have a 4k discover

They're pretty good with increases. I wouldn't trip. I still start off with 400.00 limits on their cards this far in my journey

How long did it take to get the Discover conversion?

Rethink every purchase you make, before you make it. Use the card with the best rewards. Pay in full each month. Redeem rewards often. Use the cards online shopping for more discounts. Smile, knowing that being thrifty allows you to actually get more out of the same amount of money!

Re: Walmart, $500 ...... :/

My sister said she thought she got her conversion after 6 months.  I hope the credit limit has something to do with it.  If that is the case I will try again after 4 to 6 months.  I don't want to push it with them!  I don't need it to be a Discover card, I just think it would be cool since I don't actually shop at Walmart much.  However, having a higher limit is great for more than one reason.  I might actually need it one day, for something like 0% financing!

Re: Walmart, $500 ...... :/

I'm assuming you are all talking about the Walmart store card, not the Discover?

Cards in my wallet: BofA 1-2-3 Rewards - $3,000 (5/2012), Walmart - $350 (9/2012), Home Depot - $500 (10/2012), US Bank - $1,000 (11/2012)

Re: Walmart, $500 ...... :/

From my personal experience. I've found that applying in store not only yields better approval results but better credit limits. I applied for the WM card back in July and got a denial online. Tried to recon, denied again. This month, I reapplied in store and at the electronics section and made up a bogus story about wanting to buy a tv and take advantage of the 0% interest for 18 months on electronics purchases over 429 dollars. Approved immediately for $2100. I'm a year post bk7 and still have numerous baddies on my report. Then right after I got approved, I called the backdoor underwriters number and made up another bogus story that I was in store looking to buy a tv and the credit limit I had just gotten approved for was insufficient for the item I wanted to purchase. I explained again that I wanted to take advantage of the %0 percent financing for 18 months and asked for $4000. I got a counteroffer for $3700. I took it. YMMV.
