AmEx 61 Day CLI - how to count 61 days?

I activated my AmEx BCE and made my first puchase on 11/13/12. If you count both today and the date of activaition, then today is the 61st day. Can I request a 3x CLI today?

61 days from account creation. It is the usually the day you get the email with last 5 digits of the card, or the day after. Amex CSRs can tell you the exact day of account creation and day of 1st eligibe CLI. You can also get the exact day/month of account creation from TU report.

Look online, you don't get the request CLI button on your card page until it's time. Or call the number on the back of the card and ask the helpful person about it.

There is a lot of debate about when you are able to ask for CLI for AMEX on the 61 day mark. But reading all the stories and had the exact same question asked. Its 61 days from activation from my experience.

I have two AmEX. The second account was APPLIED for on 11/15/12. That one is clearly less than 61 days, but has the CLI button already.
