Most of us don’t give a lot of thought to our credit card limit, but it’s well worth taking the time to review it. Choosing the right credit limit can help you save money on interest costs, get rid of credit card debt and keep your finances on track.
Reducing your credit limit is simple
If you decide you do want to reduce your credit card limit, just contact your bank or card provider – they should be able to arrange it for you straight away. Minimum limits can apply.
Remember, your credit card limit isn’t set in stone. It’s a good idea to review it regularly, to see whether it’s higher than you really need. And if it is, a simple phone call to your bank or card provider can help you keep your finances on track.
If you’re an ANZ customer and have the goMoney app, you can easily decrease your credit card limit. Just go to ‘Services’ and then ‘Manage cards’ within the app and follow the instructions. Eligibility criteria applies.
