    I think OP was asking about the minimum initial card limit.

    £250 for their Foundation card. £500 to £1,000 for other cards I would guess.

    It will vary depending on your circumstances. I've just been given one with a £3000 limit, this is my first Tesco credit card but not my first ever credit card. I get them on 0% on purchase deals and make sure they are clear by the end of the interest free period and then shop around for another.

    My first one has a £5600 limit.
    The second a £2400 limit.

    Wish I'd known that I'd easily get a second card, as the first one was BT and I don't need anywhere near that amount. I'd have got the purchases card first.

    Give Tesco a call and ask if they'll swap some of the unused credit limit from the first card to the second. I did this with my two Tesco Cards.
