Re: amex question

Amex cardmembers can only have 1 credit limit increase every 6 months, even if they have multiple cards.  So, you'll have to wait until 6 months are up from your last increase on your BCP to apply for a credit limit increase on your new HH card.  If you want a higher limit on that card right away, I think you should be able to move some of your limit from your old card to it.
