How to Get Approved for a High Limit Credit Card
Apply for a credit card with a high starting limit: Top-notch credit cards such as the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card typically offer credit limits starting at $5,000. You may find minimum starting credit limits listed in some cards’ terms and conditions. In other cases, you might be able to get some information from cardholders’ reviews.
Increase your income and reduce your debt: The higher your income is, the better chance you have of getting a new card with a high initial credit limit. Similarly, reducing your debt boosts your odds. Also, if your income goes up in the future, be sure to update your credit card’s information, as this could help get you a higher credit limit.
Get a credit limit increase: Some credit card issuers may automatically review your account for a credit limit increase every 6 to 12 months, but it’s not guaranteed. You can also request a credit limit increase, either online or by calling the issuer’s customer service department. Keep in mind that requesting a credit limit increase on your own may result in a hard inquiry, which could hurt your credit score.
Ultimately, to have a better chance at getting approved for a high limit credit card, you should also make sure to always pay bills on time, use 30% or less of your available credit, and otherwise make good financial decisions.
