I want to increase my limit to 20k after starting at 15k in problem is I really dont have any income and IM afraid they might to a f/r.


Anyone ever been reviewed for requesting? and if they have , was it a bad experience?

I have no idea if they will FR you but having been started with 15K and NO income, if I were you, I'd stay under their radar, especially as you've only had the card a few months. Good luck if you decide to pursue the CLI.

Re: How often amex does financial reviews?

I presume the OP's income was more significant when he apped for the card in June/July.


In any case so far he has been using the card responsibly but these are the sort of underlying reasons Amex does FRs.  Verifying income/assets.

I have reestablished credit over the last couple years
so my moniker is, well, rather out of date.

Re: How often amex does financial reviews?

I have no idea why you would continue to keep pushing the limit with them ? You're going to have to lie about a large income, because if you dont they will 100% F/R you because your income wont match your spending.
