AMEX CLI Denied.

AMEX CLI Denied.

Guys.

 

MY Amex Hilton was approved Feb 21.  IT arrived Feb 26. I activated it Feb 26.  Today, I applied a credit line increase throught the automated system by phone.  I was denied and told that AMEX only increases credit lines after 60 days.

 

Was I it by a hard pull by this one?   When is the exact time to ask for the CLI and thru phone?  I don't have the CLI button on my account Smiley Sad

 

Thanks. More power and more credit line increases to all! Smiley Happy

Re: AMEX CLI Denied.

I've been declined twice now

 

At least they initially matched my highest line at $7k

Re: AMEX CLI Denied.

From what I've read here, and if I remember correctly, you can request a CLI 61 days after opening.  I'd be stunned if it were a HP: you got kicked out before they even looked at your report most likely, and traditionally Amex CLI's are SP's anyway.

Doubt it was a hard pull.  Amex is usually (always?) a soft for CLI requests.

 

I also don't think it resets your clock, so you should be good to request again in a couple days.  This I'm not so sure about though. 

 

As for timing, it is no CLIs in first 60 days.  So you have to wait until day 61.  I think that counts from account activation.

Re: AMEX CLI Denied.

I was talking to a CSR yesterday because I also pulled the trigger a day or so early on my Costco TU and she said I had to wait 6 months to ask again even though it was just a day early from the 60 days, but maybe she was mistaken?

OMG. Smiley Surprised

 

Anyway, tried reading numerous AMEX CLI threads  -- one dude also jumped the gun and called again in a few days.

 

Imma try to call them on April 26.... Crossing my fingers. I've been stuck with so low limits!
