CC with Large Limit

Hey all,

Really quick question, friend of mine wants to get a new CC but wants a limit of around CHF6,000 is this possible? He has good UK and Swiss credit history.

The lowest limit I ever had in Ch was 5k & that was 18 years ago, if he is earning 6k a month it shoulld not be a problem. I assume your friend realises that the balance is usually paid off every month here every month.

Thanks, will mention it to him. I believe he has a CS account and the limit is nearer 4k, maybe it is based on his monthly income then.

Re: CC with Large Limit

Ha ha! He just wants another card as a backup.

What banks would give him about the same as CS? Was tempted to suggest UBS to him but I'm not sure :-P.

Re: CC with Large Limit

Might depend on who he banks with I actually use ZKB and find them fine closed any relationship with UBS ack when it became apparent they were incompetent and charged too high on fees. Not surprised they are are the number 1 most untrusted brand in Switzerland in a recent survey

Re: CC with Large Limit

I called up CS once and asked for my limit to be increased. Explained I was using it a lot for work travel and they could see I payed it off each month. It was increased on the spot.
