new cards and questions

Just got a chase freedom 3000 dollar limit and a discover it with a 4000 dollar limit and since I closed on my house last month my local bank signed me up for a homeowners card 5/3 bank with just 500 dollars. Now I'm wondering should I call and ask for a cl or wait a few months? 500 bucks dont really do me much of good since I got the chase should I just put it in my wallet and not worry. Also have a cap1 with 1300 but have had forever and that's it.

Congrats

 

I would garden 6 months or so and then request a CLI. Maybe your other cards will have grown also by then.
