So last week October 11 I got approved for a Blue Cash Everyday with a $1200 limit. Had an Amex Everyday I opened back in August 2015 and had a $2000 limit, transferred $1500 of that to my BCE for a total of $2700 (the "donor" card needs to keep at least $500 of it's limit) and closed the Everyday card. In the 14 or so months I had the Everyday I've never been able to get a CLI. Received my BCE yesterday on 10/15/2016 and used it for a few purchases then just now this morning got a CLI to $7000! I didn't feel confident asking for the full 3x and thought maybe if I just asked for slightly less it would magically be approved! And it got approved! Super happy! (I always asked for the full 3x on my Everyday card and it never once got approved, so just an irrational superstition on my part)
Congratulations on the CLI on your new BCE! That's a nice increase on a new card.
