Capital One Cuts Some Borrowers’ Credit Limits

Capital One has announced that it’s cutting credit limits for some of its cardholders. While credit card companies generally avoid doing this, they are legally allowed to cut credit limits at their discretion, and it’s common during economic downturns. The high unemployment rate and expiration of the additional $600 per week in unemployment benefits were likely major factors in Capital One’s decision.

Credit card companies aren’t legally required to notify you before cutting your credit limit, unless the change was due to adverse information on your credit report. Since that doesn’t apply here, it’s important to know how you can find out on your own.

Credit card spending in April dropped by 50% to £8.7bn ($11bn), compared with April 2019, new data from UK Finance reveals.

The number of credit card transactions by UK cardholders also saw a notable fall of 46% to 163 million, the lowest level in over nine years, as borrowers cut down on credit card spending as the coronavirus pandemic hit the country.

Outstanding balances on credit cards fell by £4.7bn in April, the largest monthly drop in over a decade, and more than double the £3.1bn fall in outstanding balances in March, as many consumers chose to make repayments rather than spend on their credit cards.

Spending on debit cards, however, remained strong in April, with the total value of transactions increasing by 0.9% to £51.8bn. This is despite the number of debit card transactions falling by 5.1%

Credit card spending fell 50% at start of lockdown

Credit cards spending dropped by nearly half at the start of lockdown as people played safe with their finances and shunned big purchases.

A total of £8.7bn was spent on credit cards in the first full month of lockdown in April, half the level of April last year, UK Finance said.

The banking trade body said this was the lowest level of spending seen since the last economic downturn.

The cancellation of holiday plans is one likely reason for the fall.


Consumers often use credit cards to pay for summer getaways or major purchases such as household appliances, owing to the extra protection available if something goes wrong.

Many people uncertain about the coronavirus effect on their jobs and finances would have put off buying these items, UK Finance said.

The temporary closure of shops and travel restrictions would also have meant many people put these buying decisions on
