Request a Credit Limit Increase on Your Comenity Card Using DoNotPay

When you are building a good credit history, requesting a credit limit increase on your is a great way to start. Increasing your credit limit doesn't just increase the amount available to spend. It can boost your credit score and show other lenders that you are a safety risk. Whether you are improving your credit score or just looking for a little extra spending power, DoNotPay can help you request a credit limit increase.

How Do Credit Limits Work?

When you successfully apply for a line of credit with any bank or vendor, you are approved for financing up to a specific amount. The maximum permitted balance is your card's credit limit. Creditors offer different limits, terms, and interest rates depending on the company, your credit history, and other factors.

Since not all creditors offer the same terms, you are likely to have a different credit limit for an American Express card than for a Discover or Capital One card. Similarly, each credit card company has its own process for requesting a credit limit increase. Citi has a simple online form, while Credit One automatically reviews your account on a regular basis and offers increases automatically based on your eligibility.

Requesting a credit limit increase is different for vendor cards, like Apple, Amazon, and Wayfair. Although vendor credit cards are usually provided by a third-party financing company such as Comenity or Synchrony Bank, you must often submit your request through the vendor. For example, for an Apple card, you create a request message through the Wallet app.
