Well, this turned out okay. Last weekend, thinking I'd gotten past 6 months since my last CLI, I submitted a request for 18K. Denied. Then, I submitted a request for 12K. Denied. Then, I called a CSR and she told me that my six month anniversary was actually 12/6 and that I should wait a couple of days beyond that. In the interim, I made sure to bring my BCP balance back to zero. Unfortunately, during that wait-time my TU and EQ numbers sank when my Chase balances got reported. For some odd reason, my Experian number went up 18 points.
This morning, I re-upped at CCT and saw that Experian was holding fast, but EQ had sunk once again. I decided to pull the trigger as fast as I could. Knowing there was no chance of my getting the 18K I decided to apply for 12K. Then, as I was applying, I just decided to shoot the moon and go for the full 3X.
Granted. 6K > 18K

Well done! I'm coming up on my six month anniversary, and I hope to achieve the legendary 3X CLI as well.
