AMEX!!!

Currently, I have a $2000 CL on my AMEX BCE. I want to ask for a CLI but Im afraid of being rejected. I tried the 61 day thing back around the end of April, but I was denied. However, I only had one statement cut during that time, I had a balance, and I wasnt using the card at all. Fast forward to now and I've been using the card a regularly and I dont have a balance. (I just paid the balance off today). How long should I wait b4 I ask for a CLI again?

Re: AMEX!!!

If you've applied after 61 days for a CLI, I believe your next wait period is 6 months thereafter.

Re: AMEX!!!

I think Amex requires 6 months from your last successful CLI, but only 3 months from a failed CLI.

Re: AMEX!!!

So I shouldn't app? Its been 3 months since the last request (unsuccessful).

I think you should be fine to ask again if you want to.  Even if it's not been long enough, I can't imagine asking now would "reset the clock".

Re: AMEX!!!

Were you given reasons for the denial?  If so, what were they?

 

If you are not eligible they will tell you.  No harm, no foul.

 

Regarless, it's a soft pull so I would say give them a call today!
