Citi CLI wait period - 6 months or 180 days?

Anybody know if Citi counts the period in between CLI requests as 6 calendar months or 180 days?

I have found it's better to wait 6 statement cuts between attempts.

Don't know which is better, but my wife had success with a CLI 6 calendar months after the last one, but just shy of 180 days.  Asking early does not reset the clock.  I received an initial SP CLI about 3 months after opening mine so the first waiting period is shorter.

When my DC was opened, they gave me an SL of $4,600. I requested a CLI with a second HP and was bumped to $9,600. I've tried the SP increase online a couple times short of 6 months and it gets denied due to not waiting 6 months in between an increase.

 

Today is day 181 since my previous increase. Hit the button and they gave me $1,500.

Any bump is a good bump. That's what I got at my last CLI.

My apologies. I meant to say I waited 6 months + 1 day according to timeanddate.com calculator. Not 181 days.

OP its fallen exactly like that for me. 180/181 days right on time every time. Limit started at $3000 now just or $30,000. I'll be hitting the button again in 4 months.

I'm about 3.5 months away from my Citi DC being 6 months old.  SL was $7300.  Anyone think I'll be able to bring my limit to $10k with hitting the button?  Spend will be about $3k/cycle with the final cycle perhaps close to $5k.  Thanks for any opinions on this.
