Not really worth it to try the check spending ability button unless you actually want to make a large purchase.

I've used the button twice for that reason and wasn't disappointed.

Re: AMEX Check Your Spending Ability

I think it is a good way to see if you will be approved for your 3x increase.

 

If they are comfortable with you exceeding your current limit, they will likely approve your request for an increase.
