Impact of a Citi Custom Cash Credit Limit Increase on Your Credit Score
When you request a Citi Custom Cash credit limit increase, Citibank will conduct a hard pull of your credit report, which will cause a short-term dip in your credit score. Citibank cannot do a hard pull without your permission, though.
Alternatively, you could be eligible for a Citi Custom Cash credit limit increase without even requesting one. The Citi Custom Cash card may offer an automatic credit limit increase if Citibank’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.
