Short Answer: You can request a credit limit increase for your Lowe’s Advantage Card by calling the number on the back of your card or visiting your local Lowe’s store. If you make a request in-store, you will still need to speak to a credit representative on the phone. Credit limit increase requests won’t hurt your credit. Below, we provide more details about requesting a credit limit increase for your Lowe’s credit card.
Lowe’s Credit Card Increase Process
You can request a credit limit increase for your Lowe’s Advantage Card by calling the Lowe’s credit card department at (800) 444-1408 or visiting a Lowe’s store. You will need to provide your annual net income and the specific credit limit that you would like. The company will cross-check your request with its risk profiles and in-house records of your payment history before approving.
We verified this information by speaking with representatives at the Lowe’s credit card department. We also contacted Lowe’s stores in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, and Michigan to confirm that store associates can request a limit increase for you. All of the store employees we spoke with said that they could do this; however, you must be present and personally speak with a credit representative on the phone while in the store.
Asking for a credit limit increase will not hurt your credit, even if Lowe’s denies your request. A Lowe’s credit associate explained that the company conducts all of its risks analyses in-house and does not report them to any of the national credit bureaus.
