Credit limit increase

Well, I've searched the forum about this, and no answers, so...

for anyone who has the Coop Mastercard, have you ever asked for an increase? I have a relatively low limit on mine (2500 CHF) and when there's a month where I have to buy a lot of stuff with it (plane tickets, etc.), it makes it a little bit tight.

So I would like to ask for an increase on the credit limit. Has anyone done this, and did you have any problems?

Re: Credit limit increase

I haven't done this specifically for the Coop Mastercard but with UBS all I did was to call them and say that I need a bigger limit. They asked me how much I said 15 Grand and they just increased it. My banker said that based on my transaction history with them (3 years of holding the card and travelling internationally a couple of times a year where I use it) I could have more if I wanted.

It was as simple as calling my banker and upgrading it.. Don't know if you can do this with your Coop Card. Best bet will be to call their Customer Service.

Same with the demi tariff credit card. I gave them a call and they increased it immediately

Re: Credit limit increase

Great, thanks for the replies, I figured it was as simple as a call.

Now I gotta psych myself up to do it in German
