Impact of a Capital One Journey Credit Limit Increase on Your Credit Score
When you request a Capital One Journey credit limit increase, Capital One will conduct a soft pull of your credit report, which does not affect your credit score. However, some Capital One Journey credit limit increase requests may involve a hard pull, which will cause a short-term dip in your credit score. Capital One cannot do a hard pull without your permission.
Alternatively, you could be eligible for a Capital One Journey credit limit increase without even requesting one. The Capital One Journey card may offer an automatic credit limit increase if Capital One’s regular review of your account shows a history of on-time payments and low debt. An automatic credit limit increase involves a soft pull, which does not affect your credit score.
