good luck, and definitely let us know how it goes. I was also tempted to request an increase!

I didn't realize you could pay your bill in store. Is it at any register or just at customer service? Cash payment or debit or both? I bet it posts faster than online!

It posts immediately, I think -- if not, then the next day. Any register, cash, check, or debit.

I called and got an increase a month after I got my card. They increased my walmart, amazon and Old Navy. I didn't know it at the time but I should have asked for more. I only asked for small increases because I was new to this and they did it with no problem...but now I see other people ask for double and triple cli's and get it. Good Luck!!

Check payments at the register are treated the same way as payments made online. When you use a check at WalMart it is processed as an EFT (which is the same process as paying online with a linked account)

 

Cash and debit transactions are not subject to the massive hold for multiple payments within 1 cycle.

Also any payments at the register have to be a completly seperate transaction. You can't say I want this, that, this, that, oh and I want to pay my credit card bill. You have complete the purchases and then make the payment seperatly or make the payment and then do the purchases.

 

(I have a 2nd job at WM as well as have thier card).

Re: Walmart CLI question

The main difference is that you can't make an online payment until a charge is posted to your account. You can make a payment at the register while it is pending. Secondly, I paid with a check and it posted the following day. You do have to know how much you want to pay ahead of time though, they can't pull up your account. They just ask you how much you want to pay. My payment was immediately pending, then posted the following day.

Re: Walmart CLI question

Was it the first payment of the billing cycle?

 

From my own experience from making payments when I called the Credit card side I was told that anything besides the first EFT in the billing cycle gets a hold. Doesn't matter if its $1 or $1000 it automatically has a hold on it....

 

Again emphasis is on the multiple payments. If you only make 1 payment a month, it doesn't matter how you pay it as it won't be subject to the hold period.
