Is it ok to request a CLI for Amazon card when a collection account is in dispute?

I discovered a collection account on my credit reports. I filed a dispute because I don't know where it came from and don't think it's mine.

 

My Amazon store card cuts it's 4th statement tomorrow and I was planning to request a CLI because I've heard of great success after the 4th statement.

 

Should I go ahead and request with the dispute open? bad idea?

 

Thank you!

IMHO 

I would wait until you clear it up

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

They gave me a CLI to $10k with two unpaid collections on my report.
