The Definitive Amex 3X CLI Guide

Re: The Definitive Amex 3X CLI Guide

Thanks for this. What are some recommended ways to use this card before asking for the 3x CLI? I made a big purchse between 20-40% of the credit line each of the 2 months and paid them off immediately (before the charge even posted - so I had a negative balance in both instances). In the first month I posted a statement of 2% utilization, this statement I have 4% utilization and my statement cuts on like the 19th. Should I make my 2nd statement post $0?

 

2nd question. I added my fiancee as an AU. Can I add her income to mine in the CLI request?

So in my example, if my calculations are correct, would be March 3rd 2013?

Going to link to this thread from the other thread; this one will be used for discussions going forward in attempts to keep the sticky item clean.

 If your first statement has not been cut then your calculations are right. 

 

Account open date = Jan 1.

 

Completetion of 60 days is on March 2nd (30+28+2), so March 3rd is correct.

Both process work the same way. If anyone has recently experienced anything different please let us know.
