There are three ways to increase your credit card limit:

  • +63 + 2 + 89-10000 for mobile phone users

3. Maintaining good credit standing: 

Luckily, I was able to increase my credit limit with no hassle by maintaining a good credit standing.  It took me 1 year and six months for them to increase my credit limit. This is very helpful, esp. when it comes to purchasing big ticket items,as I don't need to split my payment. Though, I make it into a point to always pay EVERYTHING at the end of the month. 


  1. I never knew I could literally apply to have my credit limit increased. I thought it was all just the bank's discretion without any action from the card holder. Thanks for this!

  2. Weirdly enough, I got a credit card from my bank. The customer relations officer even asked me if I wanted to have the credit limit increased to 100k, just tell her raw. But I didn't know you can do that online. But haven't really used it. But I might for when I travel outside the country.


I'd love to hear from you. I read and appreciate all comments. :)
