Amex rep glitch my cli button online?

So after calling in amex to ask a question about cash advance and tried to lower my cash advance to only 100. When I go online my request credit line button don't work anymore, I get this message "

Going forward, would perhaps skip calling Amex with inquiries relating to cash advances and assuming restraint isn't an issue, why CLD- can just let it sit.

I think it's a good idea to set it lower. I set mine to 0$ so I dont get any funny cash advanced fees when I buy gift cards Smiley LOL

Mine are still the same, never found any reason or situation to lower the threshold.  Matter of preference I suppose for some folks.

BINGO! Did this to all my accounts just for safety. I'd rather have them decline it than charge me a fee to offset my cashback.

I had this save me before. DW being new to the country didn't know what a cash advance was, so instead of using our debit card one day with western union she used our chase credit card card, if it didn't decline we would been in a world of hurt with fees on a $1000.
