Can I request a credit line increase after partially consolidating accounts?
I think the title handles it - I have two Chase accounts a perkless Sapphire account and a new Amazon account. My thought is to move $6k of the $7k limit on the Sapphire account to the Amazon account bringing it from $5400 to $11,400 and then "immediately" asking for limit increase on the Sapphire account which now only has a $1k limit. Would this work? Is there any factor to say "this account had a higher limit, lets put a higher limit back on it"

Thanks!

you can request whatever you want, whenever you want. doesn't mean you'll get it though ;) you might want to apply for it before the transfer. your description is a bit confusing, i don't follow it. when they ask you why you want a credit limit increase, explain to them you know your utilization is supposed to be under 30%, and you plan on charging some stuff, and want to keep it low. this shows you as an educated customer who understands credit and is responsible.
