So I've had the American Express Blue Cash card w/ a $4K CL for exacly 1 year this month. Never got any luv. Tried once in the past and was quickly declined.
Today I decided to pull the trigger and ask for an increase via the automated phone system. The computer said it could take requests up to $25K. Since I never had any luck with increasing the line on this card, I figured I wouldn't push my luck. I asked for a total credit line of $12K. Entered my annual income and seconds later was approved for a total CL of $12K!! Best part is, no hard pull on my Experian report! Go Amex!
Question: What would happen if I called and told them I meant to ask for $25K?? Who thinks I should do this? Majority will make my decision..............

i would be prepared for a financial review if you requested that much

I would wait 6 months and ask for next increase.
Congrats on the Awesome CLI!!!!
