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 :smileysad:

 

Thanks. More power and more credit line increases to all! :smileyhappy:

Re: AMEX CLI Denied.

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.

 

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 673, EQ 8 707, TU 720, EX 702* (09/02/14, EX older)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ '04 (01/01/15)

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.


Starting Score: ~500 (12/01/2008)
Current Score: EQ 681 (04/05/13); TU 98 728 (01/06/12), TU 08? 760 (provided by Barclay 1/2/14), TU 04 728 (lender pull 01/12/12); EX 742 (lender pull 01/12/12)
Goal Score: 720

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. :smileysurprised:

 

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!

61 days or you'll get the same response.
