Should I call them before or after I activate?

I sent a secured message and asked for the black card. So I have the black one now. I think its worth a call to the backdoor number or executive office
Hey webhopper can I do the same thing even though I just received my card? Does that matter?

Thank you! I was really excited when they approved me for it on recon. It will get a lot of usage! I hate waiting in lines so Amazon is my savior

Off topic: I just have to comment on the black Amazon card. Out of all my cards the new Amazon card is by far the sexiest!

Before you activate
OK, I just called the backdoor number to see if they would increase it from $800 to $1000 and they said it would be a hard pull, so I declined. I did ask how often they review accounts for increases and she said they look every 6 months and assess the spending then. The analyst I spoke to was really niceand informative; she did say that if she were me she'd wait 6-7 months, and if there wasn't an increase by then to call back so I wouldn't have 2 INQs from them within a week's time span.
I'll just have to get an increase the old-fashioned way - lots of lots of usage! I don't think that will be a problem with the holidays approaching.
