I'd say just keep your spending habit. You don't need to intentionally pushing money thorugh a card to ensure CLI.


You are PIF right? Asking for a $2,000 CLI shouldn't be a problem. AMEX loves to see PIF.

Agree with the bolded section above.  Do not put more money through than typical.  If you think about it, if you have to spend MORE money than normal in order to convince a creditor to raise your limit, than you probably don't NEED a higher limit on that card.  If a time comes where your income increases, or spending increases or whatnot, I'm sure a positive relationship and responsible card usage will go a long way in convincing the creditor that you deserve an increase.  

In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $32,000, Chase Freedom (12/12) $16,500, Citi Forward (12/12) $14,600, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Thank You Premier (6/15) $6,800
