I was questioning my balance on my Discover card today-over the phone-when the rep asked if I’d like to have a credit increase. With Discover I’ve paid on time all the time-but still have a balance (high balance but payments are reasonable)…but with other cards I’ve been late & the balances are high & my credit score is not good. How much would Discover increase my limit ($ 2000-$ 8000 would be nice so I could transfer a balance from another card to my Discover Card)? Would they increase it based on my payment history with them or do they take into account my credit score & my other debts?

    From personal experience, I’m pretty sure they do another general credit check like they did with the initial credit card application. The results determine what you qualify for.

    They periodically review your credit and your payment record with them. I got my first increase with Discover six months after I opened my account, another one at one year, and about one per year since. Most of the time my increases have been $ 1000-2500. I have had Discover since 2001 and now have a $ 14,500 limit.

    They might base it with the account that you have with them and not the accounts you have with other cards. There are some cards that to that now.
