Your account is automatically considered for a higher credit limit based on your credit score and payment history with Credit One Bank. But you can also simply request an increase yourself.
To do so, sign into your online account at https://www.creditonebank.com and select “Settings” from the site menu. Then press the “Credit Line Increase” button and follow the steps from there. Just bear in mind that you are unlikely to get approved if you haven’t consistently paid your monthly bills on time.
Requesting a higher limit can also trigger a hard inquiry into your credit history, which temporarily hurts your credit score. You can learn more about requesting a credit-limit increase here: https://wallethub.com/edu/how-to-increase-credit-limit/25857/. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
Make sure from 5 to 6 consecutive ON-TIME monthly PAYMENTS and watch how fast that bank offers you a credit increase. I no longer have this card anymore because of my past negligence which I'm regretting as this is one of the best REBUILDING CREDIT CARD offer...
Mine went from a $300 credit limit at the time I applied in 2014 to $450, next $550, then 750 to 950 where I started to MISS PAYMENTS because of some financial difficulties which were manageable if I wasn't that negligent towards my finances. My credit scores were between 620 and 690. Unfortunately, my history of delinquency and missed payments portrayed me as an unreliable and risky borrower which had negatively impact my credit scores. You can do better if you start and continue to make ON-TIME MONTHLY PAYMENTS and REFRAIN FROM APPLYING FOR CREDIT CARDS within a short period of time which would be 12 months or 1 year.
According to some financial services firms, some secured credit cards is the best route to go since they DON'T CHECK YOUR CREDIT REPORT OR RUN A HARD PULL/INQUIRY CREDIT CHECK for credit approval. Avoid cards that will check your credit history to determine your credit eligibility. And look for PRE-APPROVED CREDIT CARDS sent in the mail of your e-mail. Those companies offering the pre-approval credit cards would have only done a SOFT INQUIRY when they'd check your credit report history without your request or consent. That wouldn't impact your scores. Stay positive & hopeful, and take responsible risks!
Don’t hold your breath! I’ve had mine for 1 year and I’ve never had a late payment and use it all the time and my credit score has gone up over 60 points and I call, they turn me down. Haha, get a Capital One.

Impact of a Credit One Credit Limit Increase on Your Credit Score
When you request a Credit One credit limit increase, Credit One will conduct a hard pull of your credit report, which will cause a short-term dip in your credit score. Credit One cannot do a hard pull without your permission, though.
On the other hand, there are times when you could be eligible for a Credit One credit limit increase without even requesting one. Credit One may offer an automatic credit limit increase if its regular reviews of your account show 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.
The maximum credit line for a Credit One credit card is not publicly disclosed by the issuer. If approved for a Credit One card, applicants can expect a minimum credit line of $300 to $500 initially, depending on the card and their credit standing.

It’s important to know that if you’re approved, the amount of your credit line that’s available for spending may be reduced before you even use the card. Credit One charges an annual fee of $0 - $95 for the first year (up to $99 after). If there is an annual fee, it will be automatically applied against your credit line. So, if your initial credit line is $300, you could start out with as little as $205.
If Credit One’s maximum credit lines aren’t enough to meet your needs, focus on rebuilding your credit to the point where you can apply for a card with the potential for a higher credit line and lower fees.
