So I'm a 22 year old student and I got my first credit card about 8 months ago. It is a chase freedom card with a $1,200 limit. I graduate in December and I want a larger limit since I use the card for everything. I'll be earning around $75,000 a year pre tax. I currently spend between $1,000 and $2,000 on the card without the current credit ever slipping below ~$350.
Can I tell them now I'd like it to be raised or do I have to wait until after the first few direct deposits from my employer (I use Chase for my checking account as well)? Do I need to wait longer than 10 months?
