If you'd like to learn more about this feature and how to unlock additional capabilities in Brex's upgraded plans, please have your account or card admin reach out to Brex Support by clicking on Support in your dashboard.

Before making a purchase, you can update the spend limit that is actively associated with your Brex card by following the steps in this help article.

If you’ve already transacted on your card and need the transaction retroactively moved to a different spend limit, follow the steps below.
