AMEX CLI?

[ Edited ]
I have an AMEX Blue CC, received Delta Gold in Sept, upgraded to Blue in Oct.  I have received 2 statements and have PIF both times, current bal is $0.
 
My current CL is $1K and I'd kind of like to ask for a CLI to maybe $2500, I don't want to push it just yet.  I think just $1500 would be safe CLI off the bat.
 
My only concern is that I may apply for a home loan in May/June of 2008...would a CLI now hurt me?  I really was planning on waiting until this account has aged 6 mos.
 
What do you all think?

I don't forsee that would have a big impact on your score.  Go for it.  If you think you can get the increase, do it. Definitely will help your utilization.

Thank God I had that reversed a few days ago.  Chase is in my good graces again!
