I did 61 days from the day I was approved for my card.
This fots from what I was told by a CSR on the phone, they calculate from date of approval not activation. I get that in most cases it would make sense to wait for activation date just to be sure. But if it were me, and it will be in a couple of weeks, I would do it then recon and explain.

I wonder how much I should ask for, I don't want a Financial review XD
I'm starting limit at $5,500 CL. I'm thinking of asking for $12,000 just incase. instead of $16,500 but then I do have another card with $17,000 limit but that's from the notariously generous Navy Federal.
You wont trigger a FR for asking for 3x CLI ... as long as you have been honest about everything up front - than you are good to go. If they don't want to extend the full 3x, they will counter like they did with me. I asked for 22,500 and they gave me 19,200.
yea it's funny I reported I made 55k annually and they gave me 5,500 limit lol I wonder if that played into it, but that's what I actually make so it's ok I just don't like sending paperwork too much trouble haha mainly because bad experiences with capital one where I sent it 5 times and they still said they could not verify my id -_-;

Dns, how much did you push through the card? I have 2.5 CL and my 61 day increase is a month away.
I pushed about $800 through the card.
