Yes, you can ask for that credit line. Only Amex knows if it will be approved or not.  Amex CLI's are SP's, so no impact on your credit for the request. If the CLI is approved, it might increase your score by decreasing your utilization.

I say go for it! if you're not approved for the $18,000 AMEX will counter offer. I started off with a $2,000 CL on the BCP as well. Can't wait until 61 days :smileyhappy:

 

make sure to let us know how it goes and if you're approved. Would definitely like to know!

Re: Amex BCE 6 month CLI question

It is 6 months from the date of the 61 day cli, not from the date of account creation -- right?

@ Swapmeet

 

Yes it is 6 months after your last increase. I started out with $2000 then after 61 days I requested 6000 and they approved it. Now I a waiting for my 8th statement to cut then I will call them to request 25000 and I am possitive they will come back and say "we can only offer you 18000" then I am going to say "Thank you very much you have bin very helpful".... Hehe. My eight statement should be ready in April 18th.

Re: Amex BCE 6 month CLI question

Right on. I opened both Amex accounts within 5 days of each other and they only gave me 1k on the BCE. Now I have to use my 61st day to get to 3k and my 8th statement to try for 9k. Meanwhile, barring an auto cli from amex on my delta gold, it will stay at 2k.
