My Amex 61 days is tomorrow...cli attempt and should I app for new Amex card?

Ran about 5-6k through my 1k limit card over the past two months always PIF as soon as I could. Hoping for the 3xs tomorrow on my gold delta card.

Also, I’m interested in trying to get a second Amex card. Should I apply for it tomorrow? Will it be on the same pull or will I get hit twice?

If I app for a new Amex card tomorrow any thoughts on what I should app for? My ficos are only mid 650s. Lots of old resolved baddies but only good history for past 2.5 years or so. High income. I guess I want a card that I have an actual chance for with my lowish scores. I prefer the highest possible limit to any particular rewards...

Thoughts?

Your CLI attempt will be a SP.  An additional card will likely be a soft pull also.  Wishing you luck!

When you say gold card are you talking about the charge card rather than a credit card?

Good luck on the CLI. From what I’ve heard the $1000 limit on the co-branded cards is much harder to get a CLI on 61 days. It’s usually the 6-12 month period for those limits. ( I tried at 61 on mine and that’s what I was told by Amex)

Yea I’ve read that the 1k SL cards aren’t necessarily on the same 61 day 3xs track but I’m optimistic by nature. If they like a lot of spend on the card that’ll be a plus for me. Plus I even did a couple of purchases on their sponsored deals. But, again, my scores are low so I wouldn’t at all be surprised if I get the nope.

I’ll update tomorrow as soon as I know.

Current Amex customers only go through a soft pull for CLI and new cards.

Also, keep in mind, Amex only allows 1 CLI across all accounts every 6 months.






In the garden from 11/7/2018 until ?
