Re: AMEX BCE Approved - Limit? Edit: WOW!

Thank you all. I will ask for 25k. Is it 61 days from today or 61 days from when I receive the card and activate?

Some say 61 days from approval, while others say 61 days from activation.  I waited 61 days from activation, and was instantly approved for 3x

5/2012: 560 credit scores across the board and $500 secured CC
12/2014: 750+ scores across the board and $80k in revolving credit

Congratulations!

When you log onto your online account you will see the statement start date. That will be the date I use for my CLI request. It is 5 days after approval, but about 6 days before activation. That seems to be the day the card was setup and ready for use even though I hadn't received the card yet.

Instead of guessing you can always call Customer Service and ask for the exact date you are eligible. Other members have had success with that method.

In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $32,000, Chase Freedom (12/12) $16,500, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Forward (12/12) $9,600, Citi Thank You Premier (6/15) $6,800

If you ask too early all that happens is it says you aren't eligible and you have to wait a few more days. It won't reset the clock, so no need to worry about this. Personally, I would just wait until 6 months unless you have some real need for the extra credit line, but obviously there are plenty if success stories with the 61 day requests.

Thanks I just did that and WOW.

 

$10,000. They doubled my previously highest limit!

 

So is it true I can ask for a 3x (or 25k?) in 61 days?


Congrats! 

 

My BCE also started out at $10k and after 60 days (for me I believe it was from activation and not approval)  I requested a CLI on the website for $25k and was approved.  So yes, definitely give it a try.

Re: AMEX BCE Approved - Limit? Edit: WOW!

WOW that's an awesome starting CL!!  I joined the AMEX family in November.  My CL is $3300 and I want a CLI to at least $5000.  I'm a little scared to ask for full 3x since I only work part time and only made just under $15k in 2012.  I don't want to get FR'ed
