Yup -- it's your credit and income, not the creditor's "generosity" or "stinginess". Creditors do set their criteria but that has nothing to do with generosity. It's just a matter of how comfortable they are balancing profit versus risk.

They'll reduce your limits if they perceive them to be a risk. Not using up to your limits isn't a risk. Keep in mind that utilization is a major risk factor.

Your call. Run the numbers and make your decision based on that. I don't think you've mentioned your spend in this thread so we have no idea.
I've shifted limits among all my Chase cards to address utilization.
