Re: AMEX 3x CLI success!

I don't think I would've had the guts to push the button on a $34K CLI request.  Nice to see it still works even for limits that high!


Looking forward to when I get to pull the trigger on mine!

Re: AMEX 3x CLI success!

I was definately nervous but I know I have the income to back up my request if they asked for IV, however I was pleasantly surprised I got the full amount. I wonder if I will have any luck pushing beyond 34.5k once I am eligible for another CLI. 50k sure would be nice!

Re: AMEX 3x CLI success!

34.5K is the magic number before a 4506 in most cases.  $50K even w/ low spend is pretty easy with filling out the form online and submitting with with e-sig.  Takes 2-3 weeks for them to process and approve.  If you're aiming higher though it's going to take some good spend to qualify for more than 50K.

If you're going to whine about it, then you need to do something about it!
