AMEX BCE Approved - Limit? Edit: WOW!

[ Edited ]

I tried a search, but couldn't find much. Regardless, I am sure this question has been answered many times, but....

 

I just applied for the AMEX BCE and received the 14 day pending note. Checked again a minute later and it said approved. Is there a way for me to find the limit before the card arrives? I was able to do this with my Chase Freedom, don't know how with AMEX.

 

Thanks y'all.

Thanks I just did that and WOW.

 

$10,000. They doubled my previously highest limit!

 

So is it true I can ask for a 3x (or 25k?) in 61 days?

Anything over 25k in limit requires a tax transcript... best to ask for 25k instead of 30k

Anything over 25K in limit generally requires a tax transcript, not always.  But yes, probably best to ask for 25K.  And yes, it can be done in 61 days (though I don't remember if that is from approval or activation).

It's a method of verifying income (which many find overintrusive).
