I have a 680 credit score, and want to raise it by applying for more credit.
I have 1 credit card with a $2000 balance, I've faithfully paid on for the past 3 years. I did get the balance high ($1600 or so) a couple years ago when things got tight, now I have a $264 balance on it (just got it to this level, lowest in a while, but has stayed below 50% utilization for >1year now) I am wondering if I have good odds of getting that credit line increased; I only make $30k a year.
