Getting approved for a first credit can be difficult if you have little or no credit history. If you qualify for a card, you may end up being disappointed with your starting credit limit. That’s because your credit history is one of, if not the key factor that goes into extending an applicant’s credit limit.
As a new cardholder, you probably don’t have a history of using credit responsibly. Therefore, your issuer doesn’t have much to go on, so they’ll usually start you off with a small credit limit. If you’re applying for your first card with a mortgage or car payment under your belt, you may be extended a more generous credit limit, provided you’ve managed those accounts responsibly.
The amount of your first credit card limit will depend on the type of card you receive. Credit card companies don’t disclose starting credit limits, but for a store retail card such as the Amazon store card, cardholders report a starting credit limit of around $600. If it’s a major Visa or Mastercard, you may be approved for a slightly higher credit limit. Capital One Quicksilver cardholders report an average starting credit limit of up to $1,000.
To land a first credit limit above the $1,200 average, you’ll need that established credit history with no late or missed payments. You might land a higher credit limit if you’re listed as an authorized user on a card with a stellar credit history.
To get the credit limit you truly want, consider applying for a secured credit card. You’ll be essentially setting your own credit limit when you make a security deposit for the amount of your desired credit limit.
If you manage the card responsibly, you may be eligible for a secured credit card with a higher credit limit. In addition, your security deposit is refunded in full, if you close the account in good standing.
