Amex 3x CLI

Thanks to the folks in the MyFICO forum for teaching me the ropes on Amex's CLI rules.

 

I waited 6 months from the last CLI, pulled the lever on a CLI to 3x what my limit was before, and it worked like clockwork.

 

This was my Simply Cash card, but I gather it would have worked the same for my personal cards as well.

In 6 months, it could grow to $27K - if you want to push the $25 barrier.

For 2k it wouldn't be worth it to push the barrier.
