Re: Tested my GE Holiday theory with Lowe's CLI!

When I got the increase from Walmart with only having the card for 2 months, I figured it was because of the upcoming Holidays. I decided to test the theory with Lowe's since I just got my card in the mail today. On Nov. 11, 2012 I was approved for $1,000 and then immediately called for an increase, which I got to $3,500. Today after getting the card, I called the back door number for GE Money Bank. I only asked for an additional $1,500, and they approved it no problem! Now my Lowe's limit is $5,000.00 even. Tis the Season!!!
Congrats!!!! I am eager to test it on my Dillards and Chev/Tex cards (both GE). Was succesfull with Walmart card already. Tried the Chev/Tex about 3 months ago and was declined. I have a zero balance now (PIF last month). I have had my Dillards card since August with a 300 limit. Charged 250 and PIF last month. Wonder if i have a good chance with them.
biggest limits: BofA Privilege (33K)/ Citi AA WEMC (26k)/ Penfed Rewards (22.5k)/ Chase United Explorer (22k)
