credit cards & income

[ Edited ]

evening everyone, I have several credit cards through amex, chase and boa. The limits are

22k, 24k and 18k respectively. Util on them is less then 5%. I just got a raise at work and am wondering

if the additional income would make it easier for higher cl's? don't plan on using them to the fullest

extent, at this point its just for the added util padding. ai listed on past aps was 70k annually.

credit scores fico wise are 710-730 no derogs.

 

should i request cli's or just wait for auto cli-s. I tried with chase a few months back

but was told that I reached the internal limit at that point, same with boa. amex was

cli'd a few months back and i have heard of a 6 month limit between requests.

Re: credit cards & income

For AMEX you would have to wait. For the other two, it can't hurt to let them know your change in income, however it may or may not make a difference depending on their algorithm for determining such things and how big your raise was.

strange. my new income is just shy of 130k yearly. I will hold off on any new cards or cli requests and try to get 6 mos under my belt.
