Amex BCE & Macys Amex CLI

Hi all,

 

I was debating whether to even make a post about this but since I've recently read about credit limits being slashed I figured I'd give people some hope... I asked Amex for a CLI since it's been 6 months since my last one. My CL was $7,500 so I asked for a 3x CLI for a total of $22,500 and to my surprise they granted my CLI. I'm still a bit surprised they went for it during these times and hoping they don't change their minds! I'm not really a big spender with their card (or any, relative to the CLs)... I spent about $500 last month and paid it off. I also asked Macys for a CLI - I was at $22,000 with them and asked for $25,000, which they granted. Discover and Citi both told me to kick rocks lol.

 

I've had the Amex for about 3.5 years and the Macys card for about 3 years. 

 

EX: 754, EQ: 779, TU: 776

Income: $140k

 

Looking to ask PenFed for a CLI next... 6/3 will be my 6 month anniversary with them just not sure if I want the hard pull. 

 

Keep hope alive!
