Re: Credit Limits for incomes less than $30k...

Thats awesome Smug. I will be at a low income for several years (medical school + residency) but afterwards I shouldn't have a problem getting higher limits. Honestly my 16K is enough.

Re: Credit Limits for incomes less than $30k...

[ Edited ]

We (wife and I) have a combined income of less than $30K/yr on which we live quite comfortably but modestly. Our combined CL's are about $53K, of which, if we really wanted to, max out all of them, and still PIF every one of them before the statement cuts and still be in great shape. But none  of our creditors knows that, except one.

 

ETA: Forgive me if I sound like I'm bragging. I don't mean to.

Re: Credit Limits for incomes less than $30k...

I think they look at long term more than just income....

Re: Credit Limits for incomes less than $30k...

I think most banks look at your credit history and what limits are on the cards that you are already managing.  One higher limit card is a catalyst for more higher limit cards.  I think that income would be used to verify that you do not owe signifantly more money then you make.... that would be a red flag.
