For me, anywhere from $50K to $75K for personal cards.

 

With some recent card additions this year, I've gone above it, but I periodically cancel cards or request CLIs (except Chase--never do this with them) to keep around my preferred range.


Curious why you never do a CLI request w/Chase.

 


because they always HARD pull

Re: Desirable total CL?

well ask yourself this "Do I like paying credit card companies becouse I am wanting to carry a high balance?" That should answer your question.

Re: Desirable total CL?

Ideally I'd like about 75k in total limits. Given my average monthly spend, this would keep me at 9% util or lower without having to think about it. Up until now if I wanted to apply for a new card, I've been planning 2 months in advance. With 75k, I can safely stay under 9% util save December when I always have huge spending.

Re: Desirable total CL?

I would like a 5000 limit with Chase freedom and upgrade to signature. This is my primary card... I have no other cards with this limit so getting the upgrade will make it difficult.

Re: Desirable total CL?

Yes, no hards on all three. A soft pull on experian same day I requested the increase. The increase was approved with in 24 hours. I did in fact use the executive office for the increase but the gentleman was sure it would be a hard pull...
