No.. I mean if you get denied a cli, there's no min wait time to request a cli again.. So if you get a cli, yeah you have to wait. Lol I think it'd be silly to reequest/recieve one more often than that anyway. The fact that you can get an initial 3xcli at 61 days is amazingly shocking to me!! Haha :-)

Thanks...I will definitely be trying again in a week or so.  

 

I'm too much of a safe player to go for the full 3X increase though....my goal is to just go from $3k to $5K so I can start getting signature cards with other banks. Smiley Happy

Yw :-). 3xcli for me at 61 days would be $10.5k, but I only want $10k haha I might request $10,350 haha or $10,400.... Not a full 3xcli :-P

lol i'm not that greedy, and not like I really need the increase right now since I have over 50k revolving lines, I might ask for $5500 to $10,000

I'm not greedy.. I don't need it either... I'm just trying to build my credit....!! Having a large amount of unused credit is a huge plus for your FICO. If I had a $10k Amex, it's likely I'd never need to use another card ever!!
