WALMART CLI QUESTION

I opened my walmart card back in September and I got a $400 starting limit

I tried since then throught the backdoor number to get a CLI but was denied twice and was told i would get a response by mail

Today I logged into my online account to check my free TU Fico Score and suddenly i see that my limit is $1050 !!!

 

How is that possible ?

Is it because i got my first fico score and it's a good score ? or is it the last CLI attempt that was approved and not denied like the CSR told me ?

Any personal experiences ?

 

 


Starting Score: EQ 683 TU 714

Re: WALMART CLI QUESTION

Actually, this is fairly typical for GE, and it's happened to me and many others here.  I asked for a CLI on both my Walmart/PayPal cards earlier this year, was declined on both, and three weeks later had auto-increases on both accounts.  Go figure... :smileytongue:

Re: WALMART CLI QUESTION

congrats! 

it could be a factor. 

scores arent up yet though =/ 

they have until the 14th to post them (10 business days of the month) 

 

as for cli if you want call the backdoor number and ask for another increase. as its only a soft pull ethier way. 

ge and walmart grows with you fast.
