[ Edited ]

definitly go into your amex online and request your credit limit to 6k. It will be a soft pull and will not hurt your credit

 

pay down the util. first

Re: What to apply for?

it might actually take another cycle for your utilization to show a lower percent, if somebody else can chime in

Re: What to apply for?

Utilization on the Amex won't update for other lenders to see until the statement cuts. But Amex will be able to see the payments internally, so the OP shouldn't need to wait long after payment to have a good shot at the CLI. Plus, after 5 months Amex presumably has a better indication of the OP's credit than the typical customer who requests after only 61 days.

In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $50,000, Chase Freedom (12/12) $16,500, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Prestige (4/16) $30,000
