Things to Consider Before Requesting a Credit Limit Increase From HUECU
Evaluate your reasons for a higher credit limit before requesting it. Do you want to enjoy lower utilization and flexibility? Go for it. But if you desire an increased limit to take care of a consistent state of emergency, things may not work out well. Be sure to consider:
|Timing||Is it the right time to increase your limit? Generally, the right time to ask for more wiggle room on your line is when your income has increased.|
|Credit History||Be sure you've built a clean track record of responsible borrowing and payment. If your pay has dropped, you have other lines of credit, or your credit isn't in good shape, it's advisable to wait.|
|Hard Pull||A request for a higher credit limit might ding your credit. The issuer might hard-inquire your credit report, leading to the elimination of points from your score, especially if the past year has witnessed you applying for other credit lines.|
