AMEX CLI request, starting cl of 10k....

How much do I ask for? I heard they won't do over 25k without some special request?

Ask for 30, they will counter if they won't allow it.

Re: AMEX CLI request, starting cl of 10k....

There was a recent thread about someone having a 16k CL and asking for 33k CLI and it was instantly approved, YMMV.... since its only 61days you can play it safe and ask for 20k  then after 6 months ask for 30k, Not sure how the automated CLI option works when your card is already over 25k... I wish I had the CL so that I could find out, dare to dream, dare to dream. 

 

 


Cards: Chase Southwest 20k & CSP 10k & Freedom 6.6k & Amtrak 4.6k, FNBO DISC 14.9k Oregon Duck 5k, & AMEX BCP 15k & Hilton Surpass 7.5k & Zync NPSL, Sams Club MC 10k, Paypal Extras MC 6k, CapOne QS 2.5k, QS 750, Amazon 3.9k, Walmart 4.5k, Citi Simplicity 7k, HHonors Gold 1k (moved 5k CL to Simplicity), Discover IT 6.5k and a nice stack of store cards.
Last APP 4/26//2014 no plans for new credit I think I have enough.

I wish I would have known about this forum before. I have an amex bce I did a cli a couple months ago to 20 and I could have asked for more. That's why I want to get a sure fire answer before I do a cli on the blue sky.

[ Edited ]

Since you just got a CLI on one of you AMEX cards, you aren't eligible for a CLI until six months from the last CLI. I believe the telephone system states that increases are limited to a maximum of 3X or $25k, although there have been reports of higher limits being granted.

They will re-allocate from a card only after completion of 13 statement cycles.
