Well, I decided to try my luck and see could I get a little love this morning and Walmart gave me an CLI increase of $100 to bring me to $700.00. That made me smile. Wish it was more, but oh well, I just paid their card off 2 days ago so I understand. Decided to try my luck on JCP. I hardly use the card because they stuck me at a stinking $200.00 CL. I charge a few things here and there but never any real usage. I was actually thinking of closing the card because I've had it for almost a year and the limit is so low and they declined my 3 prior CLI requests. Well, you can imagine my surprise when they increased my limit to $1,500.00. I almost fell off my chair. Best news yet!!!

JCPenney also showed me some love a month and a half ago when they sent me a letter informing me that they took my measly $150 credit limit and bumped it up to $700.. I tried to get a little greedy by requesting another increase through their website but was sent a denial letter stating that while my account was in good standing I had recently received a credit line increase and should wait 3 billing statements before requesting another. Hopefully GEMB will see that I've been a good boy with my Care Credit and JCPenney accounts and will see fit to show me some love.
