Rent or mortgage payments. If these payments take up too much of your monthly income, you’ll have less to spend on credit card bills.
You need at least good credit to get approved. And the better your credit is, the higher you can expect your spending limit to be.
You can request a Capital One Quicksilver credit limit increase either online or by phone. When making a request, you’ll need to provide Capital One your total annual income, employment status and monthly mortgage or rent payment.

Keep in mind that new accounts opened within the past several months are generally considered ineligible.

Here’s how to get a Capital One Quicksilver credit limit increase online:
Log in to your Capital One online account home page.

Asking for a Capital One Quicksilver credit limit increase will not affect your credit score, as Capital One uses a soft pull for all credit limit inquiries. Moreover, after you’ve submitted your request, Capital One generally provides a decision immediately. But if they need to review further information, it may take up to 30 days to receive a decision. If you’re approved, your new credit line will be available immediately.
If you’re denied a credit limit increase, Capital One allows you to submit another request any time you like, but your odds of approval are better if you wait six months.
