Yep, you asked for too much. They will grant max CLI bringing you to 3x your current limit, so the most you should have asked for was $4500. Try again in a few months.
I just hit the AMEX luv button minutes ago after 3 months with the card, paying in full every month with a highest balance about $700 on $1500 CL. Asked for $6k CL (maybe too high). Got the 7-10 days message...uhmmmmm. I'm not happy at this moment, but a least it was only a soft pull. Now, I'm scared to ever hit the luv button again.
You think it will be a good idea to call and maybe tell them if I can get $4k? I'm not sure about this. I think it will be best to leave it alone. I have other cards with the available money, it's just that this card has 0% APR on everything (BT and purchases) for a year, that was my main reason even though I was planning on paying in like 3-4 months.
Yeah, will do next time. My mistake. I actually wanted my CL to be increased to that amount, that's why I asked for that (needed to use $3k on that card and wanted to have at least 6k avail). Will wait some more time I guess. Do I need to wait 6 mos now or just another 3 which will make it 6 months with the card? Thanks.
