How to increase the credit card limit? Check out some tips!

The credit card has the proposal to make life easier by supporting us when we don’t have a certain amount in debt to pay a bill or to buy something we need/want.

In this article we will show you what it is, how it works and what you can do to guarantee that limit increase! Or even your first. Check it out below.

What this article covers:

What is the Credit Card limit and how does it work?

The credit that is available on your credit card is the amount that the card-issuing bank has made available for the account holder to use. Briefly, it is the total amount of credit that can be spent in the month.

That is, it is allowed to make purchases that reach this amount until the closing day of the invoice, and soon after, it is necessary to pay what was spent for the previous month so that the total limit is reestablished.

It also allows you to pay in installments for your purchases in the long term and not have to pay cash at the time of purchase.

But when purchasing in installments, the total limit can be deducted in two ways.

Let’s consider that you have a limit of 2,000 reais, and you want to pay in installments a television for 1,200 reais.

The first way is to deduct the amount spent on the purchase from the total limit, thus leaving 800 reais available, and the amount will be progressively reestablished as the installments are paid.

The second way does not occupy the total limit of the card. Only the monthly installment amount will be deducted.

If you bought just the television in 12 installments of 100 reais on the card, every month 100 reais will be deducted from your total limit. That leaves 1,900 reais for you to use.

Can I buy beyond the Card Credit limit?
