AMEX BCE Question.

So yesterday I was Approved for AMEX BCE Smiley Very Happy

But I found out my CL is only $1,000 Smiley Sad

making it the lowest CC I have, I was hoping they would match my Discover IT Cl which is $5,000

 

my question is can i call the backdoor number to see if i can get it increased?

has anyone ever done this to AMEX or anyother company?

Current Score: 715 Goal Score: 775 Will Garden Soon.

You can try but be ready for one of things below

1. Another HP

2. The "cant CLI within the first 60 days of opening" thing

 

Keep us updated though,

idk if I'll actually try it though, I'm debating 

I was hoping to get approved for $2,000 and above manily for the 3x CLI at 61 days

making it $6,000 instead of $3,000 if I get approved for the 3x CLI

Re: AMEX BCE Question.

Can't hurt to try, just clarify what type of pull first to see if you're ok with it. I tried it and got the second reply.

Re: AMEX BCE Question.

When AMEX finally approved me, I got the dreaded 1K limit. 

I just used it for two months, got my 61 day 3x CLI, up to 3K. 

When my next CLI is ready to go, I'm going to try for anothr 3x to 9K.

Re: AMEX BCE Question.

Just wait 61 days then get a 3xcli to $3,000 then wait 180 days and ask for $9,000
Then wait another 180 days and ask for $24,900
Lol
Amex has been the best as far as instant approvals for accounts and clis. They give me no beef(beef is gross anyway, ew!) and respect me as a creditworthy customer. They have never denied me yet.
Went from $3500 on BCE to $24,500 in 9 months! Plus got a $5500 Delta too!
If you want any more Amex cards, app right after your second cli!

Re: AMEX BCE Question.

Congrats, I'll do that.
After 61 days to you wait another 180 or just 120 with the 60 days from the first CLI ?
I read the guide but forgot.
