This is GE's standard response.  Take your time and don't get frustrated - with positive payment history it will eventually rise.  I started out at $600 and got auto increased to $800 in January of this year.  Since that time, I've asked for CLI's every 4 months and been PC'd to the Discover version, with a current limit of $4000.  You'll get there. :smileyhappy:

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.

Re: Walmart CLI easy for some, not for others

You'll find comfort in this S7, lol.  Found out my statement had cut yesterday, previous to that I had put through ~450 (600 CL) and PIF, so I figured, what the hell.  Requested 1600, denied outright, no counter.  As expected of course, so no complaints.  I really just wanted to toe the line.  I'll wait until the 4th statement before asking again.  Maybe even the 5th to give it 4 statements between requests.

 

It's tough finding amusing things to do when you're really just playing the waiting game on your credit.  GWilling can only take up so much time, haha.
