Re: What's the limit for a toy card?

It's a subjective question based solely on one's own income and financial obligations. 

 

For example, a $100 bill is worth more in the eyes of a homeless man than it is to Donald Trump. A $500 limit card held by a college student making $20k/year is going to be more useful than it is to a professional making $80k/year. This is along the same lines as the 'what makes a card prime' question that comes up every month here.

JP Morgan Select $10k | Citi TY Premier $15k | PenFed PlatRewards $22k | BofA AMEX $15k | Chase Freedom $20k | Discover IT $10k | Barclay Arrival+ 25k | AMEX SPG $10k | NASA Platinum-Advantage $10k | CapOne Quicksilver $5k | Amazon Card $10k | NASA PLOC $30k @ 8.25% | Joined myFICO 6/12 with a 540 FICO & today I'm over 750!
