If you apply for new credit, how can you find out beforehand what the credit limit will be
It may not be worth applying for a card with a lesser limit than what you already have??

I wish there was a simple answer to that question.  It sure would make decisions a ton easier.  I guess it's just one of those things; the bank's taking a calculated risk on you by (hopefully) accepting your application for credit, and depending on the bureau they pull your report from, the limit could be (in your opinion) high or low.  So many variables make it basically impossible, especially with so many different scoring models out there, for a person to figure out what they're ultimately worth in credit.

There is absolutely no way of knowing, but what you can do is read the reviews on the cards you are looking at, often people will say in the reviews if they were happy with the starting line of credit or not. Google is your friend.
