Your Wells Fargo Propel credit limit will be determined based on your creditworthiness, income, and debt. There are anecdotal reports of some Wells Fargo Propel cardholders getting credit limits of over $20,000, but Wells Fargo doesn’t disclose a minimum or a maximum.
Please note that no matter what credit limit you get on your Wells Fargo Propel card, it’s not a good idea to max out the card. Instead, you should aim to use less than 30 percent of your credit limit each month.
If you're not happy with your initial limit, after at least 6 months of on-time payments, you can call Wells Fargo at (800) 642-4720 (they don’t accept requests for higher credit limits online). The representative will ask for your annual income, your monthly mortgage payment, and your desired credit limit.
It’s important to remember that these are the lowest credit limits you’ll start out with if you’re approved for an account. You could receive a higher limit. And the actual limit you’ll receive is based on your credit history, income, employment status, level of debt and more. Unfortunately, you won’t know how much your credit limit will be until you’re approved. Wells Fargo does not publicly disclose its maximum credit limits.
If you accept the initial Wells Fargo credit limit offer, you can request an increase in your credit limit after at least six months of timely payments. Also, after six months, Wells Fargo may review your account for an automatic increase. Eligibility is based on things such as payment history and your total amount of debt. But there’s no guarantee when, or if, an automatic increase will occur. An automatic increase uses a soft inquiry, which means your credit score is not affected.
