AmEx Blue

I posted this in another thread but didn't get an answer, so I'll try a seperate thread. 


Last night I was approved for an AmEx Blue CL2,000. I'll take it even though it will be my next to lowest CL. Highest is Discover at 15,000. I didn't really need the card, but figured it would boost my AAoA since I have a Green dated 8/1988. Hopefully the limit will grow over time. As far as I can tell, they didn't even do a hard pull.


Would I be pushing my luck to ask for a cli at activation?

Re: AmEx Blue

Yes, it certainly would.

And never fear, you'll have a hard pull on EX. Many of EX's credit monitoring products no longer genuinely update on a daily basis. Did you pull a full EX report?
