GEMB! I love you!

Got my Amazon store card exactly 1 month ago. Recon'd my inital approval from $500 to $1700. Just called today and requested a modest $2300 CLI. Approved in 2 minutes. Next week! Walmart CLI, you're mine. Don't want to anger to CLI gods by requesting twice in the same week. haha.

Wow, thats's amazing! I called them back in December to slightly increase my Amazon and PayPal CLs. Now I'm wondering if I should call back and see if I can ask for yet another Amazon CLI, as it's currently standing at $4K, and I'd really, really, really like it to be $5K to match my PayPal CL. Your experience is very encouraging. I believe it's all soft pulls for CLIs, correct?

Re: GEMB! I love you!

I just got really scared. I checked after I got off the phone (as I always do) and my old credit limit was still showing so I called them back and was like what's going on ( nicely of course :]) and the fixed it phew!
