Re: Walmart CLI after 4th statement

@ aquatic1 Yes! every little bit counts. I am sorry about such a low increase for you as I was expecting around a $125-150 CLI my self. I pleasant surprise to see a $400 increase. I am not sure if using the card is a factor but I do for gas & at Sams Club as I too afraid to apply for their card yet, lol. Next time I might not be so lucky.

Re: Walmart CLI after 4th statement

@mjbfan79  Were the CLI in increments of $125 over the 2 yrs to where your limit is now? Do you know if the take a look at your reports before increasing CLI.

@i-turner

 

When I applied in December my EQ was around 640 as that credit file has always been my lowest score. I had 1 collection about 2 1/2 yrs old at the time, about 10 inq over 2 yrs, my debt util was 30%,  and a few new accounts too. Not sure if it helps but I was shocked I was approved. Just the luck of the draw I guess in my case.

Yea they would soft me it took me 2 years to get to a $825 CL where i stand now. I feel kind jealous now there giving out $400 auto CLI. I've never received an auto CLI from them.

Re: Walmart CLI after 4th statementon

Congrats!!!! That is a nice increase considering WallyWorld is a tightwad for sure.  Just keep them happy with those on time payments and  you should build a decent CL over time.  I've been with GEMB for several years, and patience is a virtue.  Good luck.
