Re: Walmart CLIs?

I always PIF -- usually BEFORE the statements cut. It seems like not all GE accts are equal when it comes to CLIs. WM somehow seems harder to get CLI than ON.

That's what I do, too. As soon as I made a 6 month 0% interest purchase on Amazon they softed my TU. Two weeks later when I only made a partial payment and let a balance post, I got a huge (for me) CLI. The Amazon card seems good for easier to get, larger limits.

Has anyone hit the luv button more than every 4 mos? Have you had any success in getting a CLI more often than every 4 mos? Also wondering if you've ever gotten a Discover offer from the luv button.

 

I am really anxious to PC my WM store card to Discover. My TU FICO is over 100 pts higher than when I got the card, mostly because a CA fell off. I should have just waited 2 mos., but I was anxious to get the monthly FICO. Smiley Embarassed

 


based on what ive read on here people seem to be getting increases every 4 months from hitting the luv button. some get lucky some dont. I too have been looking at walmart for a store card being i do alot of shopping there.

Re: Walmart CLIs?

I've received  3 increase in credit lines as requested during the 1st 6 months of card ownership.  Only PIF once during that period.  YMMV
