What should I ask them to increase it to?  I'm at 12K right now, with a HHI this year at 140k.
 
Thanks.



Does a FR worry you? If not, 25K is good.

Re: AMEX CLI...thoughts
I'm a little concerned about the F/R.  Not because I don't think I'll pass it, I haven't given any false information, I just don't like the idea of going to use my AMEX and then all of a sudden it's denied and I look like a fool.

from what other people have been reporting, it doesn't look like they do the FR until you clear 25k limit

Yes, this is widely considered to be one of the triggers for a FR.

Re: AMEX CLI...thoughts
Then I'll just shoot for 20k and see what happens.
 
Thanks all!

Re: AMEX CLI...thoughts
Well, I did it.  I didn't want to get greedy though, because as much as I know I'll pass an FR that still doesn't mean I want to fall victim to one.  :smileyhappy:  I went for 17,000, 5k more than my limit now and got it.  So, of course, I'm thinking to myself that I should have gone for 20k just to see if I would get it or not, but that's ok.  I'm happy now!  Thanks to all for the input!

Should have went for 20,000.
 
But no looking back now.
 
Just wait for 6 months and go for 22,000!

Congratulations! I hadn't seen your name around recently--glad to hear that everything's going well.
