Last CLI Received on one of the accounts: 07/29/2012

 

I will complete 180 days since last CLI on January 25, 2013. (2+31+30+31+30+31+25). Eligible date for CLI going by this rule = January 26, 2013

I will complete 6 months since last CLI on January 29, 2013. Eligible date for CLI going by this rule = January 30, 2013

 

 

Am planning on attempting on Jan 26 first. My credit score is near 800 on EX and I have been tracking the softs. If I get denied, it will be most likely because of violating the eligibility rules and not income/credit profile. I will attempt again on Jan 30 if that is the case without necessarily waiting for email/snail mail. It will also confirm if I reset the window during the attempted credit shuffle on 08/14/2012

 

If others have datapoints to share, please do. 

 


Received 7-10 message on the CLI attempt. So looks like I jumped the gun lol bummerSmiley Indifferent

Do I need to wait until Monday you think?


Do you see this option after clicking "Manage My Account"(Toggled to "HIDE ACCOUNT OPTIONS" in the pic below) next to the "Outstanding Balance/Available Credit" on main page? This is one more place where there is an option to request a CLI. If not you could always try the automated phone method or over the phone with a CSR Smiley Happy Let us know how it goes please!

Thanks to this thread... Had got my Amex BCE in November 2012 (Date Approved: 11/19/2012, Date Activated 11/26/2012) for $3500 as starting limit. I don't have a very long credit history and so Amex had pulled all 3 of my reports, so I was a border case approval.

 

I applied for a 3x CLI online today to $10,500 and was instantly approved. My highest credit limit by long stretch.... Thanks everyone !!!

Yeah. That spot is there. Just wanting to double check before I do. If I request a CLI and it is before the 61 day mark do I have to wait 90 days to try again? Or can I try again like the next day.

You can ask the next day. I shared this in post 54 and post 63, OP will be updated to include this as well. Seems like your account dates were already discussed in post 52.
