Contact Us to lower your account credit limit.
We take into account the cardmember’s level of debt compared to his or her financial resources. We also look at a variety of factors that make up a customer’s overall credit profile, which includes, among other things, payment history with U.S. Bank, reported income, and credit bureau reports and scores.
Your current Credit Limit, Line of Credit, or Revolving Credit Line can be found on the first page of your monthly statement in the Activity Summary box. You may also call Cardmember Service at the phone number listed on the back of your credit card.
It can impact your score because any time a credit limit increase is requested, a cardmember’s credit bureau may be pulled and reviewed in making the decision.
Credit usage is approximately 30% of your credit score. Your credit utilization rate compares your total balances (debt) to your total credit limits. Generally, the higher your credit utilization, the lower your credit score will be.

A credit limit decrease can originate from a request by the primary cardholder/joint owner or by U.S. Bank. The credit department reviews a number of factors when determining if a customer’s credit limit should be decreased. We take into account the customer’s overall level of debt relative to his or her financial resources known to us. We also look at a variety of factors that make up a customer’s overall credit profile, which includes payment history with U.S. Bank, reported income and credit bureau reports and scores. A letter is sent explaining the main reasons for the limit being lowered.
We recommend pulling a copy of your credit report and make sure your credit information is reporting correctly to the bureaus. You can get a free copy by going to AnnualCreditReport.com.
