    Increasing Credit Limit 17th May 17 at 6:39 PM
    I have just got a Nationwide Select credit card with 0% purchases and balance transfers.

    Does anyone know if I can increase my credit limit before the 0% expires 12 months from the opening date?

    I did this with my Nationwide Select credit card. I applied to increase the credit limit online about 6 months after I first got it from £2000 to £3000. As far as I could tell the 0% rate applied to the increased limit.

    I was given an increase in my limit at 6 months. My son got the same. We both got the same %age increase. I then got another increase at 12 months.

    You can ask, they can say no.

    I wouldn't do it until you've had the card for 6 months as they're likely to decline you until they get more data to assess how risky (or not) you are.
