Easily Get Your RBC Credit Limit Increase
Your initial RBC credit limit was determined based on your income and credit history at the time of application. If either of these situations or another aspect of your financial situation has changed significantly, requesting an RBC credit limit increase can be a helpful option for you to take more control of your finances and improve your lifestyle.
Here is an overview of how to increase your credit limit and how DoNotPay can help you simplify the process.
When Can I Request a Credit Limit Increase From RBC?
Although RBC does not provide a specific timeline for when you may be eligible for a credit limit increase, you should generally wait until you have had and responsibly used your card with your current credit limit for at least several months to a year before making a request for a higher limit. This gives RBC a reasonable amount of material to analyze to determine how you are using your money now, how it differs from your financial situation when it made its initial decision, and whether increasing your limit at this time is the best option for both you and RBC.
What Information Will RBC Ask For?
RBC and other credit card companies will generally reevaluate the information it used to determine your initial credit limit, particularly your income and credit history. Your history with RBC will also be an important factor at this point, such as whether you have consistently paid your RBC credit card balance on time and maintained a reasonable utilization of your current credit limit.
Things to Consider Before Requesting a Credit Limit Increase From RBC
You will generally have the best chance of having your credit limit increase request approved if you are able to present evidence that your financial situation has improved since you received your RBC credit card. This typically involves increases in your income or credit score, and you will likely have a higher likelihood of having your request approved if both categories have improved.
Considering whether you are making your request at the right time and for the right reasons can help you determine whether requesting a credit limit increase is actually a good idea or if you would be better off waiting. Some of the most important things to consider include:
- Whether your overall income has increased and by how much
- Whether you have recently or may soon receive a promotion or change careers
- Whether your credit score has increased and by how much
- Whether a higher credit limit makes sense within the context of your other financial responsibilities, especially if they have significantly changed since you applied for your RBC credit card
How to Request a Credit Limit Increase From RBC on Your Own
RBC offers three options for requesting a credit limit increase, which means that you can choose a method that works reasonably well for you. Depending on your preferences, you can submit your request:
- Online. You can log on to your RBC Online Banking Account and choose Change Credit Limit. Follow the instructions to make the requested changes.
- By Phone. All lines are open 24/7.
- In-Person. Go to your preferred RBC branch.

However, even though the process itself is flexible enough to give you options, actually getting your credit limit increase request approved can be difficult.
