Re: dare i try (again) amex cli

dnm,
 
I am going through the same situation, almost.  My EX is still showing a late that is gone on the other 2 CRA reports.  I tried a CLI with AMEX, and they shot me down because of the late.
 
I called AMEX's customer service department and explained the situation.  They told me to call the credit grantor (don't know formal name) department when the item clears up and explain the situation.  The rep seemed to think this would get me a lot further than just trying again for a CLI.  Also, I think it would be good to speak to a live person.
 
 

Starting Score: 583 EQ, 612 EX, 569 TU
Current Score: 658 EQ, 648 EX, 618 TU
Goal Score: 720 EQ, 720 EX, 720 TU

Re: dare i try (again) amex cli

you refering to amex's balance transfer and crdit limit increase dept? i spoke with them to recon the 10/5 cli decline and didn't make my case successfully back then.
 
i was hoping that if they did a soft that the computer would let it fly since the score went from 602 to 646.

Re: dare i try (again) amex cli

thanks for the advice, your english is fine.
 
i actually never went over 40% utilization since i had the card and hit the button today. i think i must have been asking for too big a cli before 2-5k, because i asked for 2-4k and was instantly approved!

I wish they had a way to say, "we are unable to give you this much, but we can give you this much" It seems you have to keep getting denied to get approved.
