I think it really depends on past relationships with them. I had 2 charged off accounts, balances under $1,000 that are now paid, but they will not give any type of increase to me. I started at $800 on an Amazon account and have had it for just over a year now. I request an increase every month and they will not give. I have tried by online request, chat and phone. I have played around with account, made large payments, paid off entire balance, never missed a payment..... and today instead of great news, it got worse. I received a notification from MYFICO that said my credit line was decreased. So I logged in, and sure enough it dropped from $800 limit to $690. Not impressed by Sychrony. They are now my lowest credit line and at $690 I have no reason to even carry them.
Congrats on the approval! I myself started with Walmart last September with a low starting line of $150.00. My lowest credit line yet but I heard a lot that it will grow. I havr requested an increase a few times but haven't had any luck. I normally carry a small balance and make big payments. When I logged in on Friday it was my first time in their new site and I was asked to verify my income which I did. I thought hey why not request an increase since they asked for my income anyways and yay finally! Small increase from $150 to $300 not huge but they double the credit line so hey, i'm slowly getting somewhere. I also have synchrony's Amazon card and their Ebay Extras mastercard. Started with their Amazon card in September as well with an $800 limit. Tried hitting the luv button with them a few times with no luck but aroung late February logged in to a $600 increase so now I sit at $1,400 with that credit line. Still waiting on one for the Ebay card. Be patient, your increases will come. Congrats again!
