Re: Walmart CLI

I opened my Walmart card in November last year.  Through chat, I have gotten increases every month since February this year.  First was a $700 CLI to $1200. March was a $2,300 CLI to $3,500.  Just about 30 minutes ago, I got a $2,500 CLI for a grand total of 6K in available credit.

 

My reported balances have been all the way up to 86% util (that was when I got the first CLI) but lately they have been 10% or under.  I do let a balance report on this card monthly, but pay multiple times a month if needed to manage the util reported.  Today's CLI was with a reported 8% util after the last statement cut.

 

As always, synchrony can be a YMMV thing but I think it is also knowing the right questions to ask the agent.  They will always push you to use the online tool, but I always ask them to put it through for me.  To date I have had ZERO success with the luv button (tried several times), but 100% success through chat.

Re: Walmart CLI

Rattler, what do you say to the chat agent?  DH has had his card since November and no luck with the luv button.  I would like to try chat for him.  Thanks!

I let them know that I would like to make more use of the card and then I shoot high for the new CL I would like.  Their counter offer is usally pretty decent.  I do check my dates from the last request so there is at least a month in between.  Also, like I said above, I request they do it for me instead of letting them lead me to the online account option.

 

Do you use the card regularly mims?

 

Edited to Add - I also have an authorized user on my account who makes use of the card and pays it off just as I do, so maybe that helps with them seeing that I have 2 people sharing one CL and we manage it well.  I could be totally off in this assumption, but who knows?!?

Re: Walmart CLI

Well I went through chat.  They tried to push me to the button but I asked them to review it.  I said I don't have luck hitting buttons.  I told them I would be more prone to use the card if my limit were higher because I monitor my utiization and scores.  Old limit $1,200;  New limit is $3,500.  I asked for $5k and they met me in the middle.  In a few months, I will try it again.

Thanks for responding everyone. Seems like 4 months is the magic number. I got a pre approval in the mail about 2 weeks ago. They've actually been hounding my for months and I put it off, because I wanted CareCredit instead. But I got declined for Care Credit last month, so figure to get my foot in the door with Sync, that I would apply for the Walmart Card.

I got instantly approved for $600, but called and got it raised to $4,000 (asked for $20k). Not bad, I go to Walmart every week and put Gas at Sam's Club frequently. So hopefully in 4 months I can grow the CL.

Grats on your CLI Smiley Happy
