I applied online for the Amex CLI about 30 minutes ago and got instant approval for 3x the original limit ($2k to $6k). I am currently about 64 days out from my original approval date.
I had read here in the forum that Amex was more favorable to those with 20% utility or less, but my utility is currently at 61% pending my next payment which is due 12/7.
Thanks again for all forum members that share their experiences, both negative and positive. It really shortens the learning curve for a lot of people and I hope this post will add at least a little value to someone else's efforts.
Have a safe and happy holiday season!

Congrats on the increase. I was nervous with mine @32% before I asked for the 3x increase, but 62% Wow! That's awesome. So glad Amex are now understanding that those with high utilization still pay their bills too

I should be a little more clear.
My Amex balance was at 61% utility at the time of CLI request. My overall utility is 38%.
