If you ask for a Wells Fargo credit limit increase, Wells Fargo may do a hard pull of your credit, which will temporarily lower your score. But they’ll sometimes do just a harmless soft pull, especially with older accounts and when Wells Fargo offers an increase without you asking. Besides, getting more credit can be good for your score in the long run.
Here’s how to get a Wells Fargo credit limit increase:
Say or enter your credit card number to be connected to a representative.
Tell the representative you’d like a credit limit increase.
Answer the representative’s questions about your credit and income.
Give the representative permission to do a hard pull of your credit, if needed.
You won’t always have to ask for a Wells Fargo credit limit increase to get one. Wells Fargo will periodically review your account to see if you’re eligible, using only a soft pull of your credit. And if they like what they see, they may just raise your limit.
