Today was my 61st day with Amex - CL was 19.8k to start so I asked for increase to 30k - instant approval! I didnt try for anything higher to avoid IV or any tax form stuff.
Data points - have $2100 balance right now (BT for 0%) - put about $4k total through since Jan. Income 120k (actually higher adding in bonuses but since those arent a given I dont usually include). Current scores in siggy. I have about 6-8 INQ on each CR - most from car shopping Aug '15, the rest are for cards I got Jan/Feb this yr including NFCU app, card and CLOC. AAoA - with new ones, dropped to 8yrs6mos.
With help from this forum, I have tripled my available credit in 2 short months - thanks everyone! Been gardening for a month - I am hoping to get into the 800's.
Thank you - I have the EDP. Just got my 30k point sign up bonus as well so great week with Amex!
Congrats! They started my BCP off at 2K, but I believe that may also be because my other highest limit card (that's not AU) is only at 2K. Hopefully mine will grow in time. 30K AMEX CL is definitely a milestone!
First off, congrats OP.
Second, Austinguy, I know youre gonna read this.. So what amount does AMeX ask for the tax stuff?
Thanks and while I am not Austinguy, but I believe its $34.5k ish..
