What Information Will Old Navy Ask For?

Three Things to Consider Before Asking for a Credit Limit Increase From Old Navy
Before asking Synchrony Bank to increase your Old Navy credit limit, here are three things you should consider:
- Sometimes, requesting a credit limit increase can lower your credit score. This is because some providers -- while considering your creditworthiness -- will perform a hard inquiry on your credit information. If you are thinking of making a major purchase that relies on you having good credit, these hard inquiries can have a negative impact.
- Synchrony Bank regularly reviews accounts to determine if account holders are eligible for limit increases. Chances are, if you wait a while and make all of your payments on time, your credit line will increase automatically.
- Do not request a credit limit increase if you anticipate any sort of negative situation to your finances, such as you are planning to move or you have gotten laid off from your job, as you will likely not only be denied the increase but will also face a hard inquiry.
