Hey 'guys'. I kept getting mailers from AMEX offering the Green Card but I wasn't interested. Checked Pre-qual on their website and was pre-qualified for several cards with solid APR's. I app'd for the Every Day Card and was approved instantly for a whopping $1k. At least I'm in. I know several threads show people requesting CLI at 61 days from the date of activating their cards, and it seems to normally be a soft pull. However, i have found at least 1 thread that said it was a Hard Pull. Any rhyme or reason to hard pull verses solf pull? I appreciate anyones personal experience.
As for when you can request a CLI as AverageJoesCredit had with his experience you don't have to wait the 61 days after the account opens to request a CLI on your card. You can request one upon activation if you want if your credit profile supports it. And it will be a soft pull you just have to be careful as to which soft pull report they use because it seems like AMEX likes to use old soft pull reports and not current ones when taking CLI requests into consideration. Searching the forums can give more clarification on this issue if needed.
Congrats on your Amex approval, and yes it can grow. You should be safe when asking for a CLI with being a SP request
Congrats on your approval. I believe you are safe for a SP increase (depending on your profile) at 61 days....good luck!!
Congrats. App the Blue Cash and you will probably get it too. I got 2 in one day and the ED card was a low limit but the BCP was given 2k.
