Card Issuers

Can sombody answer this for me please?
I currently have a 0% interest card, issued by Tesco through Mastercard.
I am thinking about another card application - if the new credit card provider was also Mastercard would that affect the credit limit I was offered, or doesn't it work that way?

    The network (i.e. Visa/Mastercard) makes no difference at all ... they are not lending you any money.

    It is the issuer (i.e. Tesco) that's bearing the risk. So you probably wouldn't get another Tesco card.

    But applying for any other card ... it would make no difference at all whether it's Visa or Mastercard.
