Walmart /Amazon credit limit increase?

Hey guys,

 

I've been reading the forum for about 6 months now and I've been excited for both of these GECRB credit cards to auto increase my limits.

 

I just received my 4th statement from each account and haven't received an auto increase yet, although I've heard GECRB usually increases during this time.

 

My cards are currently at $400 (Walmart) & $600 (Amazon).  I've been utilizing the cards to about 90% and paying them off in full, immediately after each statement posts - before the due dates...

 

Should I request a cli or should i wait for the 5th statement to post next month ?

Not everyone is eligible for auto CLI. That being said, I would call Credit Solutions ( some have suggested calling after hours or on weekends for best results). YMMV

Calling seems to universally get better results than web initiated and auto CLI's.

Thanks for the response.  Should I wait until my 4th statement payment has posted to the account for a zero balance?  I dont want to jump the gun :smileyhappy:
