Amex BCE cli question.

so about 4 days ago i requested a increase from 1000 to 1,500. i got  message saying we will send a written response with 7-10 days.   today i got the letter  which i thought would be a denied message. but i actually got a message saying they need my IRS 4506T form. is this common for such a little increase? and wat are my odds of approval?

Re: Amex BCE cli question.

So first question is, do you want to play?  Some people don't, feeling that providing tax forms is too intrusive.   For such a small potential increase, I might decide not to in this case.  If you don't, your CLI request goes away, you just keep your current limit.

 

Have you had the card long?  Have you been spending a lot compared to your income?

Most active cards: Amex BC ($50K), Cap One QS ($33K) Fidelity Amex ($20K)
Others: CSP, Freedom, Chase Amazon, Cap One QS, Penfed Plat Rewards (x2), Citi TY Preferred, Citi Dividend, Citi AA Plat Select, Citi Forward, Amex BCE, Amalgamated Bank, Sallie Mae, Cash Plus
Scores May 14: EQ 848, EX 833, TU 841 (Jul)

Ok, I saw the College Card and assumed you were a student.

If you do not execute the firm, the CLI will probably be declined. I agree, that's a sm amount for income documents.

45% util is kinda high. Were the balances being carried?

Were you a student with a different income when you first got the BCE? That might be why they want docs.

 

ETA: Just saw your post. Then idk. There must be something else going on...
