Quick question for y'all.
I opened my Amazon account back in April with a $1400 CL.
In July (1 month before the 4th statement) I got a small $200 auto-CLI from GE.
I tried in August to get the 4 month CLI and was denied due to not enough experience at the current limit.
So my question is this...
When is the right time to call the backdoor number to try for my next CLI?
Can I do it now or should I wait till after the November statement comes?
Thx for all the help as usual

I would call now, I opened my account in June 2012 never received any increases, was denied last month, called again 3 days ago and spoke to an underwriter and went from 600 to 1200. I currently had a $191 balance on my card and my fourth statement had not posted.

I called the backdoor number the same month I opened my account. Initial CL was $1,000. I got it jumped to $2k after I spoke to a rep.

My initial CL was $1400 and I received a auto CLI after 3 months to $1,600. Called in after six months for a CLI but was denied by the automated system, so I spoke to an Analyst and was approved for a total of $2,000.
