Guide to Increasing Your Credit One Credit Limit
Your credit score is an important part of getting through life. You cannot rent an apartment, buy a car, or eventually purchase a home if your credit is bad. Knowing how to responsibly use your credit cards is a good start to keeping your credit score from decreasing. Once you have earned the use of a credit card, you can use it to help improve your credit scores through credit limit increases.
How Credit Limit Increases Work
If you pay your credit card bill on time and keep a low balance on your card, you could qualify for a credit limit increase.
With a credit limit increase, the cardholder has access to more money in their account. If they keep their payments consistent, then this affects their credit utilization score in a positive way. Credit utilization means that even with more funds available to you, that you are still staying within your budget. Responsibly responding to a credit limit increase would mean not maxing out your credit cards.
An increase to your credit limit on your card(s) can be a big advantage to you in regard to your creditworthiness.
