Effects If You Exceed To Your Credit Card Limit

Sometimes you can’t just avoid going over the limit due to some unforeseen reasons. However, if you are staying close to the top of your limit and regularly exceed to your credit card limit, your credit worthiness definitely will suffer. Plus, you will likely be paying more to use credit now and in the future.

You decide how you use your credit cards, and you suffer the consequences if your decisions abuse the privilege of using those cards. Exceeding your credit limit is abusing that privilege.

One of the consequences of doing so may be charging an over-the-limit fee. Over-the-limit fees charged by your creditor and increased interest rates are not reported as part of your account history so have no direct impact on your credit report or credit scores.

Another fairly common result is that the lender may increase your interest rate. Fees and interest rate will increase as you use your card. This will make you use your card less until you reduce your debt and, it compensates the creditor for losses from people who are possibly over-extended and end up not paying at all.

It should be noted that your credit limit and current balance both will appear on your credit report. Your credit report will show clearly that you have exceeded your credit limit or are charging all that your card allows. Credit scores weigh your balances as they compare to your limits, so will be affected negatively.
