Re: Walmart CLI easy for some, not for others

I think that there's definitely something to the fourth statement rule, but if you have good (or great) credit you can pretty much ask for anything, anytime.

Also make sure your accounts are generating statements or else you will never get an increase. 


 

It is possible to get an increase with no statements with GE backed cards.

 

Within the past month, I was able to get CLI's on two accounts:

 

WalMart - no statements or balance for 2 months - 600 CLI

JCPenney - no statements or balance for 6 months - 1400 CLI

 

 Both cards will be two years old next month. The JCP card never had a CLI. The WalMart card had one at the 4 month mark...nothing after that until last month.


My experience was different. I had the  card  for 10 months used it , and never had a balance on card , so no e statement ever generated on my account, and system always denied stating not enough experience at current limit.  Back in sept/oct I did an experment, and left a 25 balance so my first statement generated.  GE gave me an auto increase ,and let me request an additonal  increase the same day that they apporved.

Re: Walmart CLI easy for some, not for others

I called (backdoor number) right after I received my Wal-Mart card with it's tiny $400 limit. Got a big fat no.

 

I also have a GE card with Belk. I have been using & paying in full every month. I waited until the 4th e-statement cut like everyone said. Another big fat no. :smileysad:

 

I am happy I got these to rebuild, but with a 650 FICO, it was still kind of depressing not to be able to use them more for Christmas.

FYI - Lenders for CC accounts can no longer use household income (except in the state of WI) for applications for credit or credit line increase requests. Changes in the federal law known as the Card Act caused this. If you plan on providing household income just don't say it is household income, that would cause the lender to not accept the income amount. This is the Ability to Pay Requirement of the Card Act. Just thought I would advise.

 

Ps -- I work in the Underwriting dept with this lender, so if anyone has any specific questions about lending philosophy, etc feel free to PM me and I would be happy to answer your questions. No personal questions please as I can only provide you my insight in a general sense -- not in an account specific sense. :-)
