Do credit card companies such as American Express, Chase, BoA base your new credit card limit on existing cards? I have a Citi Forward card with 4k limit and was wondering if i applied for a new card would they take into consideration my limit on that card and give me roughly the same limit? Possibly a higher limit to persuade me to use it more? In the next few months I'd like to get a new card to keep me set for a while so my average age of accounts doesnt drop to bad in the far future but if they are the type to start you out with toy limits I probably will just pass. Also can you guys recommend a good card comparable to the Citi Forward as far as rewards, interest, and credit limits?
