AMEX CLI WTH?

Yesterday was my 60 dau mark for my AMex Delta Gold, so I requested a CLI from 10,500-->14, 900 and was promptly approved. Today is the 60 day mark for my Amex BCP. My request was rejected *sad trombone* and I got the following message. Have you heard of this happening before?

Hello!

Yes- it is Amex policy that you can only request one CLI each 6 months (including the 61 Day CLI)  across all cards.  So since you got the CLI on the Delta- no CLI again for any other cards for 6 months.  6 months from now- you may request a 3X CLI again for one if your cards.  


Starting Score: 642
Current Score: EQ 773, EX 780, TU 777 (All FICO)
Goal Score: 800+

If you got a CLI on an AMEX, you have to wait 6 months for another CLI request for any other AMEX account you have.   If you just got a CLI on your AMEX Delta Gold, you won't be able to request a CLI on your BCP for 6 months.

 

So it's not unusual or a bad sign, just AMEX's policy.

Congrats on the CLI! Does anyone know if the 61 day request results in a HP?

It doesn't unless you end up talking to a rep and they ask your permission.  Otherwise it goes off the last pull (soft)  they did that's in the system.
