    5 digits huh? but how much exactly? I'm not encouraging this, only enquiring!
    But why? Would you go up to a person on the street and ask them how much they earned?

    Highest credit card is 5-digits. Another card is unlimited (a charge card which needs to be paid off each month). Having a large limit shouldn't be a goal. Generally speaking you shouldn't be using up the limit. Encouraging other people to get higher credit limits is frankly bizarre and borderline irresponsible.
    You said everything I was going to say here.

    How much do you earn?
    this year currently I am looking at about £220,000
    but I need that to rise before I consider that I've truly made it that would be somewhere between £750,000- £1,000,000

    I'm nearly 20, and my credit limit is £4,500 with American Express. I'm a part-time student, and work full time (previously for the most talked about government body on this forum). My salary is about £21,000 (pre-tax, NI, Pension and deductions) for reference. I pay back everything in full, each month. In total, I have £16k of a available credit, never used.
    Wow, and I thought we'd stopped all that post 2008! You have £16,000 of available credit with a salary of just £21,000. Just for interest, and not for one minute suggesting you'd do this, your take home pay is roughly £1450 a month. If you'd maxed out your credit cards and they were a very average interest rate of 18%, you'd be paying £240, or 16% of your monthly take home pay just in interest!

    Scary. Just out of interest, why do you feel you need such high limits at such a age, given that were you to use that available credit you'd be crippled financially?

    You earn nearly a quarter of a million pounds a year yet you spend Sunday afternoon's writing posts on The Student Room.

    Interesting.

    it's funny to read anti-Brexit propaganda and lefty liberals as pour a £1500 bottle of bourbon off my ivory tower
