Another Amex question.. 61 day CLI on new card, when having an existing card

So I got approved today for the HHonors Amex card $5,500.  I already have the Detla Platinum Card and in November I received a CLI.  When I hit the 61 day mark on my new card will I be able to get a CLI?  I know there are some quirky rules with Amex about how often "accounts" not "cards" can receive CLI. 

 

I would love to get a shot at a CLI to $16,500 in 61 days.

 

Thanks!

I believe you have to wait 6 mos from your last CLI. So, in your case, the 61-day CLI wouldn't apply.

Im in exactly the same situation.  My understanding is that once you get a CLI on any card you next one must be at least 6 months from the last.
