How to Request a CSP Credit Limit Increase
The Chase Sapphire Preferred (CSP) Card is designed with travelers in mind, offering some of the most versatile reward points in the financial industry. Unfortunately, for existing customers that want to request a CSP credit limit increase, the process is often tedious and time-consuming.
DoNotPay has developed an automated system that takes the guesswork out of requesting a credit limit increase and puts the power back in your own hands. Getting a has never been easier.
Why Is a Credit Limit Important?
Having an adequate credit limit on your credit cards is crucial when realizing the debt to income ratio. The goal is to retain a balance that is less than 30% of the maximum limit.
Some cardholders exceed that threshold and find they need a credit limit increase to keep their credit score intact. High-risk borrowers often receive a low credit limit, especially when first starting a relationship with a financial institution.
Credit card companies such as American Express, Capital One, and Discover usually will not consider a credit limit increase unless creditworthiness has been established for at least six months.
All credit limit increase requests require a new application, sometimes negatively affecting a credit score. DoNotPay eliminates the need to pull a credit report and makes it easy for CSP customers to request a credit limit increase at any time.
The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card
Frequent travelers consider the CSP card to be one of the best travel rewards credit cards for the following reasons:
- Members receive 5 points for every dollar spent on travel booked through the Chase portal.
- Members receive 3 points for every dollar spent on dining, groceries, and streaming services.
- Hotel and airline partners accept a direct transfer of points.
- 60,000 bonus points are available when applying for a new card
Generous Credit Limits
Chase charges a $95 annual fee, but the cost far outweighs the many benefits the card offers. The minimum credit limit for the CSP Card is $5,000 and typically maxes out at $20,000 based on creditworthiness.
Comparable Interest Rates
The interest rates range between 15.99% - 22.99%, slightly higher than comparable credit cards offered by banks, such as:
Am I Eligible for a CSP Credit Limit Increase?
Existing cardholders can request a Chase credit limit increase at any time. Keep in mind that every time you request an increase, a hard inquiry is placed on your credit report.
Too many inquiries about your credit history can negatively affect your credit score. Chase primarily uses Experian to determine eligibility, but it does report payment history to all three credit bureaus.
Existing customers should only request a CSP credit limit increase when:
- They have an excellent credit score, higher than 740
- Annual income has increased significantly
- Purchasing habits have changed
- The debt to income ratio needs adjustment
- They have not made a request in the last six months
How to Request a CSP Credit Limit Increase on Your Own
Chase does not accept online requests for credit limit increases at this time. The only way to request a on your own is to call the number listed on the back of your credit card.
The toll-free number will connect you with a series of prompts, often leaving you in an endless loop of frustration.
