I was approved for $2000 CL. New Lowest credit limit :smileysad:

 

 

Is there any way to dispute this or have them increase without another HP?

I called em and they gave me another number to call - a New Accounts number or something like that. They closed at (I think) 8. What number did you call this late to get your CL?

Application status number: 1-800-567-1083

 

Speak "application status" 

 

will ask for last 4 of SSN and zip code. 

 

Automated machine told me my approval status as well as credit limit :-( If you wanted to talk to an agent it says to call back Monday - Friday 8AM-12MIDNIGHT EST. 

 

hopefully you got better than my 2K limit :smileysad:

 

 

also thanks everyone for the help and congrats!

I guess 61 days isn't that bad to get to 6K. For some reason I thought maybe AMEX would try to match my joint account Chase CL or offer somewhere near it. Oh well. does AMEX ever reconsider CLs if you call them?

Haha alright! I'll wait! I'm just kind of surprised AMEX gave me such a low CL, since I've never been approved for less than 5K (besides Macy's card).
