Not sure if it works the same for business cards, but with the personal cards there's no button on the site to request a CLI - but you may get the option to request a CLI when you press option 5 on their automated menu when you call. Doesn't work for me - I get the message to press 5 for various options (one of which is to request a CLI), but then that menu only has things like 'press 1 if your card is worn out and you'd like to order a replacement, press 2 if blah blah blah' - something like that.
I've only had my card 4 months though, so I'm not surprised the option's not available. Sounds like people have more luck after the six month mark. How long have you had the card?

I received an automatic CLI, I didn't ask for one, when my util went down. My balance was down to just under $1500 from the high of 4837.60, 85% util, also due to BT's. The auto CLI was in April or May. Then in Beginning of December I called in and asked for a $1200 CLI through the automated system. I got that as well.
At the beginning of the year my CL was $5700, now it's $8K. And I like that even number a lot more.
