AMEX 3x cli Approved!!!!! though a bit over the 61mark

Yesterday I called and requested a 3x increase on my Costco True Earnings AMEX.  It was approved and I am quite overjoyed.Smiley Surprised

 

 

 Reasons being;

I have a 32% utilization across the board.  I do not pay this card in full and I've only had it since the end of Aug.  My card balance was over half the limit when I requested the increase.  My fico scores have dropped almost 70 points since I started using my cards for new home repairs.  All of these factors were racing through my mind.  I decided to give it a try anyway. Man! Am I glad I did.

 

Awesome outcome.  Never could of got here without* all the triumphs and trials of the participants on this boardSmiley Wink


Starting Score: 722
Current Score: Now 687 what the hockey sticks...from a 784 (Aug 12 EX 751 EQ Fico)
Goal Score: 800

If your outGo is more than your INcome than your UpKeep will become your downFALL.
