The maximum credit line for a Credit One credit card is not publicly disclosed by the issuer. If approved for a Credit One card, applicants can expect a minimum credit line of $300 to $500 initially, depending on the card and their credit standing.
Credit One cards are designed for people of various credit levels, from bad to good credit or better. The lower your credit score is, the lower your Credit One account’s maximum spending amount is likely to be. Credit One may periodically review your account for an automatic credit line increase. This usually occurs after you’ve had the card for at least 6 months. Credit One doesn’t release specific criteria for granting automatic increases.
How Annual Fees Affect Your Credit One Credit Card Limit
It’s important to know that if you’re approved, the amount of your credit line that’s available for spending may be reduced before you even use the card. Most Credit One credit cards charge an annual fee. If your card has an annual fee, it will be automatically applied against your credit line.
If Credit One’s maximum credit lines aren’t enough to meet your needs, focus on rebuilding your credit to the point where you can apply for a card with the potential for a higher credit line and lower fees.
Credit One might automatically increase your credit limit after six months, or you can request a Credit One credit limit increase online or by calling (877) 825-3242. For the best odds, pay your bill on time for at least six straight months, reduce your outstanding debt, and update the income Credit One has on file.… read full answer

Some people question whether Credit One is real because it has no physical branch locations, operating online only. Another major reason people might think Credit One Bank might not be a legitimate company is that its name and logo are quite similar to Capital One’s. Both companies are real (and they’re not related). Capital One is just bigger, more well-known and has more credit cards to choose from. And Credit One does not offer financial products aside from credit cards.
Here’s why Credit One Bank is legit:
Credit One Bank is a legitimate company, founded in 1984.
About 10 million people have a Credit One Bank credit card.
Credit One Bank has been accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) since 2011.
Credit One has a B+ BBB rating. The BBB notes a pattern of customer complaints about billing and credit-reporting issues made against the company.
Credit One Bank has paid more than $128 million in cash back rewards to cardholders to date. The company also gave $2.5 million to charity in 2021.
Credit One Bank is among the major credit card issuers included in J.D. Power’s annual U.S. Credit Card Satisfaction Survey. Credit One does rank at the bottom among national issuers, though.
Credit One is a completely separate company from Capital One, even though their logos look similar. And Credit One actually had its logo first.
Credit One is legit. Whether a Credit One credit card is the best option for you depends on your unique financial needs. For example, the Credit One Bank® Platinum Visa® for Rebuilding Credit is considered one of the best unsecured credit cards for bad credit on the market.
Here are some of the best Credit One credit cards:

Credit One usually lists only the minimum credit limit for its credit cards, if they give any indication of what the credit limit will be in the first place. So, it’s possible to receive a much higher credit limit than you might find in the card terms. Applicants with high incomes and excellent credit will generally get the highest Credit One credit limits.
