Walmart ClI

[ Edited ]
WOOO HOOO!!!! Got this card with a whopping 150 dollar limit. Today, got a huge 75 dollar increase. Now I'm finally in the money. Thanks GEMB. Seriously I have only used this card twice, and both times almost maxed it out. I made small payments until paying off the 103 dollar balance Wednesday. That's for those of you who want to know about usage. I say use it, make small payments, and then request an increase.

Had my cards since July so i have a little more waiting to do for a CLI. I recently requested a CLI was denied the letter they sent in the mail told me i have to wait until i have 4 months of payment history to be considered for a increase will try again the first of Nov. Also it seems like GE MONEY BANK is not big on giving huge CLI from reading people remarks on this forum.

Re: Walmart ClI

thus, all the sarcasm in my posting. I have found that Me and GEMB just aren't good for each other. I'll keep it for the history though.

I have SD'd my GEMB card after putting 1000s of dollars through a $900 limit card with no CLI. Not to mention the 21+% APR. And rewards applicable only to one store. Ouch.

They seem like Orchard when it comes to CLI.
