    it's a credit builder card, there's a reason people are getting them and it's not because they have shown to be a good credit risk in the past, they have either had past problems or they have a sparse file, would you lend £500 to someone who has previously not paid it back or who hasn't shown they can manage debts yet.

    Ok, 500 is a decent start limit.

    It will be just for petrol and shopping online...

    No intention of running a balance

    If they operate the same as other New Day cards, then usually after the 4th or 5th statement, subject to status of course

    No sign of anything yet, but I expect it will be at least 6 months for any increases.

    Iíve had a poor limit increases for £700 to £900 but as Iíve not used the card very much I guess itís understandable.
