Available credit vs. Limit?...

Postby Twisted Innovator » Mon Feb 03, 2014 10:18 pm

I got a BCE and my limit is $1,000(I know, it's ****zy lol...went on an app spree lol) but my available credit only says $500. I'm confused? lol If I have a limit of 1000, why is it only showing available credit of 500? I can't do nothing with that....maybe buy some candy lol

Did you just get it? If so that may be your temp limit until you receive the card physically. Otherwise check online to see if there are pending charges.

I'm still waiting for it to come in the mail. I went online and it says 500 for available credit and 1000 for my limit. I haven't activated it yet...

This is your temporary limit in accordance with the Instant Account Number terms and conditions. Your full limit will be available upon the activation of your physical card.
