Re: The Definitive Amex 3X CLI Guide Discussion Thread

I got Amex Delta on Dec 2 last year and requested for a CLI right after a few days. As expected, they declined my request saying that their policy doesn't allow them to CLI before 60 days. My question is when would I be eligible for 61 day 3X CLI? After 60 days from Dec 2nd or from the date I got declined?
Walmart Discover $10,000... Chase SW $8,500... Freedom $7,000... CSP $6,000... Amex Delta $3,000... Amex BCP $2,000... Local CU $1,500...

Re: The Definitive Amex 3X CLI Guide Discussion Thread

i currently have 18k cl and  planning for my next CLI. Do you mean documentation is required when reaching 25K, so I may be better off to ask for 24.5k total CL. Or it's ok to increase to 25k, just not go above

I shared a lot of datapoints in the previous page which addresses this same question. Also there is a point in OP about this very situation, but I admit it should have been worded better and I will be rewording it. I planned on editing the OP last weekend but I am testing a CLI tomorrow and have several updates planned to go at the same time.

 

You can reapply after the original and correct 60day/6month timeline.

 

Also make sure you are getting the correct "Date Opened" for your Delta Amex following ways outlined in the OP. You say that you "got" the Amex Delta "On Dec 2" which has very little to do with the correct 1st CLI eligibility date.

It's okay to increase to 25k, just not over.

Re: The Definitive Amex 3X CLI Guide Discussion Thread

Amex did a hard pull on Experian when I requested my 60 day CLI on my BCP.  I saw it on the report.  I did get the CLI though.  It was from 2000 to 6000.

I'm guessing this falls into the <1% marginal/borderline category, much like they do for approval denials where occasionally it does happen.

 

Knock on wood they don't make a habit of it heh, though I'll find out in another 59 days or thereabouts myself.

Re: The Definitive Amex 3X CLI Guide Discussion Thread

Thanks OP for this nice guide.  In about a month I  will have reached my 61 days and now I would like to get your advice.  Amex gave me 5K initial CL for the BCP and I do not know if I really shall go ahead and ask for 15K?  The reason is that I have gone through an application spree in November and Amex was the last app after 4 hard pulls. To my surprise they gave me 5K after CapOne 5k, Discover 2,5K and Chase 4K... all brand new accounts and most not even reporting yet. What should I do? Wait for 6 - 12 months or simply go for the gamble? 

FICO® EQ 784 (as of today) - TU 771 (07/25) * Fako EX 789 (09/02 - CS) * last app 06/01/14 * INQ last 2 yrs TU: 5, EX: 7, EQ: 7

Why not go for it? Worse they can do is a counteroffer or a decline (with a SP).


Amex Platinum (NPSL) | Amex BCE (33,400) | Chase Sapphire Preferred (24,800) | Discover IT (12,700) | Chase Freedom (6,300) | Walmart (4,500) | CapOne (4.000) | Alliant CU Visa | Gone for good: CapOne secured (thx for getting me started) | Amex Zync (thx for getting me into AX)

FICO: TU 770 (8/18) EQ 732 (8/8) EX 748 (12/5)

So is the maximum you should request exactly $25k or is it $24999?
US Bank Cash+ -- Chase Freedom -- Citi Dividend Platinum Select (in 45-day wait period for Dividend Mastercard World Elite:smileyhappy:) -- AMEX BCE
