    Highest available limit credit card?

    So, what is the highest credit card limit that you have on a single card?

    Mine is 10k$.
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you're stupid and make bad choices.

    That would be $25,000, which is more than I think I would ever need. Ironically, it is our newest card. I have had a Capital One for at least 15 years now and they refuse to raise the limit every time I ask. They say I have to wait to be invited. Anyone ever hear of that nonsense? My credit score is over 800 and we make almost triple the income we had when I opened the account.

      Roll some debt on that bad boy and you will be a VIP to them. Invites in the mail, invites over the phone. You wouldn't have to worry about invites then. lol If you are not rolling debts, you are not a valued customer.

      On the surface, credit card companies say to use your credit wisely, but behind closed doors, I believe they are very happy to see you do the opposite. Think about it, if even HALF their customers paid off the cards and never rolled a balance the banks would have to downsize quickly. No more rewards cards. No more low-interest transfers. They thrive off fees and interest, just like movies stores thrived off late fees (article I read once). Same reason we need people to spend spend spend, so we get a good return on our mutual and index funds. ;/

      As a side note, My daily driver reward card got bumped from 5500 to 8500 this week apparently. Just noticed it today. I never build up more than about 1500$ at a time, so it didn't really do anything for me. But its fun to watch it climb. lol

            I've got 2 cards at $13k, one at $15k, others at lower limits. More than sufficient for me, because even in my high spending months, I don't think I've ever gotten much above $5k. Normally, my monthly spending on my main card stays between $1000-$1500, so my current limits work perfectly for me.... I try to keep my monthly balance below 10% of the limit on any given card.

                $25k for my newest card
                $9k for my backup card
                ??? for my oldest never used card

                The ??? is because I can never remember the password to that account. Their criteria for passwords is not consistent with my typical passwords, so I can never remember it. And you have to have your credit card in hand in order to reset it. I don't carry the card because I don't use it. Such a pain in the rear. This account always gives me trouble with Mint because I can't remember the stupid password to fix it. Part of me wants to delete it since I don't use it, but then I would lose all of that historical data that I may want to look at sometime.

                  I had to look it up but that required walking about 5 feet from my computer to my desk drawer.

                    $50k on my Amex
                    $35k on 2 other cards

                    Those were from the days when I carried a lot of balances. Seems odd that I could get a higher credit limit when I had a lot of credit card debt. Now they only approve me for $15k. Something is wrong with that.

                      See my second post. You lost your VIP status when you used them properly. :/

                        $8k limit on my one and only card. I always decline options for an increase.

                        Generally charge around $1500-2000 per month and pay it off as soon as the month closes (long before the statement arrives in the mail)

                          This may not apply to you but for others, if you are trying to get your credit score up, a higher credit limit can help because it improves your utilization ratio. If you keep your monthly charges to about 10% of your limit, that looks better as far as your score is concerned than charging 25% or 40% or more.

                            I have no idea. I dont think I ever noticed what the max was for any of my credit cards.

                              No idea and don't care. Way more than we would ever use.
