Reasons to increase your credit limit

A higher credit limit can help lower your credit utilization and can give you more financial flexibility.

Lower your credit utilization

When you have a higher credit limit and don't spend much of it, you’ll have a lower credit utilization. Keeping your credit utilization below 30% across all of your credit cards is one of the ways to increase your credit score over time.

Improve your financial flexibility

Increasing your credit limit gives you more purchasing power by making more room for spending.

Eligibility for a higher credit limit

You can request an increase to your credit limit at any time, but you’ll only be approved if you’re eligible for a higher limit. Eligibility for a higher credit limit depends on your payment history, account usage, and other factors related to your credit utilization. 

Impacts to your credit score

Your credit score won’t be impacted if you request a higher credit limit. Your credit history will be considered when we determine your eligibility for a credit limit increase, but there won’t be a hard credit check.
