Does the system notify you that you are applying too early if you request a CLI before the allowed timeframes...or does it give you a 7-10 message?

Re: Amex CLI timing?

The system gives you 7-10 day message.  On a similiar note, does anyone know minimum time waiting to submit new request after a declined CLI request?  I asked for a small increase from 22k to 25k and was declined...tried a month or so later and got an error saying I was declined a CLI too recently.

Amex Blue Cash Everyday - 22k CL | Chase Hyatt - 15k CL

PenFed Platinum Rewards - 12k CL | Chase Sapphire Preferred - 8k CL | Chase Freedom - 5k CL

I think 30 days from denial... but it would have to be +6 months from your CLI.

I think it's odd that some people can request a CLI too early. I only say this because, on my account, the option to request a CLI isnt available. It just have a little thing that you click and says you cannot request a CLI within 60 days of opening the acct.

I know if its not under the "manage credit" tab you can go to the "more account options" and select "increase line of credit". I am coming up on my 6 months later this month on my True Earnings but I dont want to chance it because I just got approved for the Blue Sky last week.

They make it hard to find. Worth noting that the "check spending ability" is seperate from the " increase credit line" button
