need advice about credit limit increase on visa
Hi All,

I am trying to repair my credit. My scores are:
EQ (Fico) 677 April 28
TU (Credit Karma) 675 May 7
EX (Fako) 743

I just applied (as in yesterday) for a Discover IT card and was approved today. I have had a US Bank Visa for 1 year, always paying my balance on time. I wanted to raise my credit limit on the card from $500 to $1500. However, I am now fearful to ask for the limit increase because I just got the Discover. Is it too soon to ask for a credit limit increase? Should I wait a couple of months? I believe that US Bank pulls Experian because I got the Experian score through a partnership they have with US Bank, and I know that Discover pulled TU.

Thanks for helping,
