Re: Amex CLI 3x rule?

61 days after activation then 6 months after that.

 

The automated system does mantion that it can process CLI up to 25K but if you're looking for more, it will transfer you to a CSR.

 

Once I hit my 6 month mark, I will go for the max 25K. Thats more that I will ever need.

Re: Amex CLI 3x rule?

Just keep in mind that if you have multiple AMEX cards you can only do 1 CLI every 6 months whether it's a new card or not.  For example, say you got a BCP today, 61 days from now you get a CLI...you then open a AMEX SPG card a week later after that and then try a CLI 61 days from that point of open...it will decline.  You won't be eligible for 6 months from the date of your BCP CLI.  I tried this myself and I got a decline and a letter saying I already did a CLI increase on another card and I have to wait 6 months from date of CLI. The rep on the phone told me the same thing. 

 

However, if you just have 1 card you need not worry...it is 61 days from open date and then you'll have to wait 6 months after that initial CLI to get another one.

If you only had charge cards and now you have a CC, then 61 days from activating the CC, you will be eligible for a CLI.

 if I understand correctly I got a CLI on my BCE card back in Nov and got approved for the Blue Sky in Jan so I won't be able to get a CLI on the Blue Sky until May?

Re: Amex CLI 3x rule?

Here's my story:

 

I was approved for the AMEX Gold Credit Card.

 

When it approached a year (and the AF) I app'd for and received the Delta Skymiles Gold Card with a $2K CL. Closed the Gold Charge card.

 

61 days later did an auto CLI to $6K.

 

Six months after that I did the auto CLI to $18K.

 

In six months I'll try an auto CLI to $25K (yes, there limit on auto CLI's) and be done.



Starting Score: TU 672 EQ 654 10/20/09
Current Score: TU 775 EQ 783 EX 799 (PLUS)
AMEX Delta Platinum $35K, NFCU Visa Signature $30K, HHonors Reserve Visa $35K, WF $13.5K, IHG Rewards Club MC $25K
