To get a First Premier Bank credit limit increase, the account needs to be open for at least 13 months and kept in good standing, with on-time bill payments and no maxed-out credit limit. Eligible First Premier cardholders may qualify for a credit limit increase upon request, though there is a fee equal to 25% of the increase amount. You can request a higher limit online or by phone.
How to Get a First Premier Bank Credit Limit Increase
You need at least 13 months with the card before you can be considered. But they'll never give it automatically. You have to request it. What's worse is, if you get accepted, you will be charged a fee equal to 25% of the difference between your old and new limits.
Simply call the number on the back of your card, but I am not sure it's worth it. You can apply for a credit limit increase on your First Premier card any time, but can't receive an increase until you have been a customer for 13 months.
Increases range between $100 and $200 and they will charge you 25% of the amount by which the limit is increased. I'd say go for a better credit card if you improved your credit. There are so many options. It's not worth increasing the limit on such an expensive card.
You may be eligible for a credit limit increase without asking after 6-12 consecutive months of on-time bill payments with a new credit card account. Credit card companies need evidence that you can handle your current spending limit responsibly before giving you the ability to borrow more.
Creditors will review your credit, income and payment history on a regular basis moving forward. If they feel you can afford an increase and refrain from abusing the added spending power, they may automatically grant a credit limit increase without you asking.… read full answer
If you get a credit limit increase without asking, it should help your credit score. To start off, issuers only use a soft inquiry (which does not affect your credit score) for this type of increase. If you ask them for an increase instead, they’re more likely to use a hard inquiry, which can cause a temporary drop in your score. In addition, getting any kind of credit limit increase adds to the total credit you have available, which can lower your credit utilization if you spend the same amount of money (or less) than you did before. Or, it can allow you to spend more without increasing your utilization.
If you want to increase the chances of a credit card company giving you a higher limit without you having to ask for it, there are a few steps you can take.
How to get a credit limit increase without asking:
Always pay all your bills on time.
Pay off the card you want the higher limit on fully each month.
Update your income on the credit card company’s website/app.
Keep your account open for at least 6-12 months.
These steps won’t guarantee you a credit card limit increase without asking. But they will certainly help your chances.
If your credit card’s issuer doesn’t grant you an unsolicited increase, you may want to just ask for an increase yourself. While your request will probably lead to a lower credit score, the damage will be small and temporary. And in the long term, a limit increase has the potential to bring your score higher.

Impact of a Credit One Credit Limit Increase on Your Credit Score
