Thanks all, this is in great part to the knowledge we share here in this community with one another, so its amazing. So once I activate it, the countdown til 61 days to push the limit to 3k hopefully lol.
Pretty much. Except that it's not from the date of activation or the date of application. It's from the day Amex creates your account (which in my case was smack between the app and activation dates) -- and you'll be able to see that date once you're able to set up your online account.
