Re: The Definitive Amex 3X CLI Guide Discussion Thread

I've read through most of the replies but nobody seems to mention what to do in this situation...

 

I got my first 2 Amex cards on 6/1 and 7/1 respectively. Am I eligible to do the 3x CLI on 8/1, or do I have to wait till 9/1? Thanks.

I get cards for their rewards, sometimes prestige

The question has been answered - it's 61 days from account creation. If you want the cli's on your June approval it's 61 days or July's approval it's 61 days. You may only ask for one- not both. If denied its 90 days from the date of denial or 180 days from approval. Amex considers all cc's as the 'account ' not individual accounts in this situation.

Re: The Definitive Amex 3X CLI Guide Discussion Thread

I really only applied for this CC because I wanted to see if I could finally get approved for an AMEX post BK.  I have all the "prime" CC's I need and more than enough credit.  Like my other CC's I will very rarely use or have any need for the credit available.  I'm just playing their FICO game just in case I need a car loan or a mortgage in the future. Do I need to use this card in the 61 day time period before asking for a 3X CLI??

Re: The Definitive Amex 3X CLI Guide Discussion Thread

Today was my 61 days & I got the 7-10. That really sucks as my Exp report is a 745 & I have not opend any cards beside the PRG charge card I got at the same time.Guess I will try again in 90 days. I did run abut 3k through it and PIF, but I owe like $200 as of right now. But I will have it paid b4 statment cuts.

Re: The Definitive Amex 3X CLI Guide Discussion Thread

Just recieved my BCE with $3500 CL.  I'm expecting a $10,500 CL 61 days from now.  6 months later, it better be at $25K.
