Asking for an AMEX FR

Just had to play with the "check spending" button with AMEX.

 

Got this result:

"Your inquiry to spend $10000 has been APPROVED. This approval is based on your account information available at this time."

Too many INQs & low AAoA so I'm off to tend the Garden.     Age:23

Nice play!

 

From my experience, Amex would approve spending up to twice your credit limit.

That is what I did. Just checking to see what they will approve over the limit. I think it is also a good way to see how you stand for a CLI. If they aren't willing to approved purchases above your limit, then most likely they won't be willing to approve a CLI.

The button is not a toy, at least that's what Amex claims.
