I did pay it off and had to wait 30 days and they have now informed me they are sending my a pre-approved Optima Card application with a $500 CL to sign and return. The Rep said after 12 months of good pay history I can request a CLI and also apply for other AMEX cards.Anyone have similar experience with AMEX lately?
Yes, DW did. Day she received the Optima and activated it, she applied for AMEX Green and Delta online and got approved for both.
If you register online, you can request a CLI. Try once a month. They likely won't give one on the Optima, but their policies are sometimes fluid so it does not hurt to ask.
Her Delta has a $2K CL, and in July she plans to ask online for a CLI.
AMEX can be extremely generous so getting back in their good graces via the Oasis Optima program is a good way to do.
