Thanks.



Does a FR worry you? If not, 25K is good.

Re: AMEX CLI...thoughts

I'm a little concerned about the F/R.  Not because I don't think I'll pass it, I haven't given any false information, I just don't like the idea of going to use my AMEX and then all of a sudden it's denied and I look like a fool.

Re: AMEX CLI...thoughts

from what other people have been reporting, it doesn't look like they do the FR until you clear 25k limit

Yes, this is widely considered to be one of the triggers for a FR.

Re: AMEX CLI...thoughts

Then I'll just shoot for 20k and see what happens.

Re: AMEX CLI...thoughts

Well, I did it.  I didn't want to get greedy though, because as much as I know I'll pass an FR that still doesn't mean I want to fall victim to one.  Smiley Happy  I went for 17,000, 5k more than my limit now and got it.  So, of course, I'm thinking to myself that I should have gone for 20k just to see if I would get it or not, but that's ok.  I'm happy now!  Thanks to all for the input!

Re: AMEX CLI...thoughts

Should have went for 20,000.
 
But no looking back now.
 
Just wait for 6 months and go for 22,000!
