You can’t increase your Chase Amazon.com Credit Card limit online, unfortunately. The only way to request an Amazon.com Credit Card credit limit increase is by calling the customer service number on the back of your card. That goes for all Chase credit cards. But Chase may also grant you one automatically without you asking.
Here’s how to increase your Amazon.com Credit Card limit:
Call Chase’s Amazon.com Credit Card customer service at (888) 247-4080.
Enter your full 16-digit card number to be connected with a representative.
Tell the representative you’d like to apply for a credit limit increase.
Answer questions about your credit and finances, including your annual income and housing status.
Allow the representative to do a hard pull of your credit. This will temporarily lower your score, but it’s necessary for getting an increase.
If your credit and income exceed what Chase is looking for, you may receive an increase immediately. Otherwise, you will get your decision by email and/or mail within 2 to 4 weeks.
Generally, it’s best to wait at least six months before asking for a credit limit increase. That will give you time to build up a good payment history and demonstrate to the credit card company that you’re responsible.
Even if you don’t ask for an increase, Chase may give you one automatically. They’ll periodically review your account to see if your performance deserves it. Automatic increases only trigger soft pulls, which do not affect your credit score. But there’s no guarantee you’ll get one. Keeping your account in good standing and updating your income information will help, though.

Some forum users have reported initial credit limits as low as $150.… read full answer
Your credit limit will depend on a number of factors - the most important of those being your creditworthiness and annual income. Your credit report tells the card issuer how responsible of a borrower you’ve been, and how much debt you’ve incurred. Your annual income tells them how much additional credit you can comfortably afford. So it really does change on an individual basis.
An Amazon Store Card credit limit increase will result in a hard pull on your credit when you request it, and in a soft pull when the issuer reviews your account and offers an increase without you requesting one.
The main difference is that while a hard pull could lower your credit score for a short period of time, a soft pull won't have an effect on it.… read full answer

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.
