Update: AMEX $25K popularity

[ Edited ]

I'm eligible for a CLI call and wondering how often they give the full $25K without a counter?

 

I'm currently at a $12K CL on my BCE. Total util is 5%. Perfect payment history with AMEX. BCE balance is at $0

I'm not sure, but my brother was around 14k-15k and requested online using the LUV button for around 40k IIRC and they countered with 33.3k. That is on a plain Jane AMEX Blue that he's had for around 3yrs now.

Generally, don't they ask for more documentation to provide anything above $25K

i've seen people post that in a few threads, but i'm not sure. I know he just logged into his account hit the button and was immediately countered with $33.3k. I'm an AU on that card so my available credit jumped a lot and my utilization is really hard to get above 10-15% since we both PIF and only leaving small balances sometimes.

Re: AMEX $25K popularity

SO I pulled the trigger for the CLI and requested $25K and they told me that it has to be reviewed by the Risk Management Team etc that I will hear from them in 3 business days

 

Also the guy said that it will be a HP. I was like why??? AMEX has always been a SP. He said no for CLI's AMEX always HP's. I asked him this twice to make sure I wasn't dreaming.

 

My previous CLI was instant in like 2 seconds. My EX is frozen but I'm sure they can still SP if they wanted to just like WalMart and PSECU do.

I recently received an Auto CLI from $25K to $27K.  Not quite the same as requesting a CLI, but no documentation was requested.

Good luck!

 

I'm not sure how my brother was able to luck out then? Maybe his salary helped a lot?

WoW aint this strange I have never heard of hard pulls now for cli's from Amex except if your credit was in the toilet, I wonder if this might be a new trend now of some kind, kept the forum posted,  middle of next week I am going to request a cli myself from Amex on my costco card but can only go up to 18,000, I will update on my status as well.  Good Luck

Well having it pass to risk management is new reading for me... 

 

Now on another note that I screamed out loud when I read was this guy saying HP and NO, CLI's have ALWAYS been HP's.... REALLY, How long have you worked at Amex? I actually usualy ask them if they know the difference first, then depending on that answer we can move forward to help him locate the correct information not for me but so he doesn't say it to others!

It's rare with Amex I feel...
