Congrats!

 

I think @BrutalBodyShots is the resident expert on the $5k-at-a-time approach with Amex, so maybe that poster can answer your question.

Grats on the CLI and you have a great CL on the card Smiley Happy

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

- Rhonda Byrne

I've had it since 2013 and have only been going 5k at a time since it was 25k.  It's been 6 months so I figured why not and went from 45k to 50k! 

 

Anyone know what the limit is? Should I have asked for more? 


From my experience, asking for more than $5k would have resulted in you still only getting a max of $5k anyway, so I don't believe you left anything on the table.  I followed the $5k/6mo approach for years from $30k up to $59,900.  When at $55,000 I was only able to obtain $59,900 when I tried for $60k. 

 

It's been almost a year since I asked for a CLI since hitting what I believed to be a ceiling at $59,900.  I just put in a request and rather than get an immediate response it said I'd receive one in a few days or something.  I'd imagine that's a hard "no" which is fine since I go months without even using the card.
