I've had my BCP (19,500) and CSP (18,500) for 14 months. These are (were) my only 2 cards (except a couple retail cards).
CLI for the BCP to 30,500 (no IV, probably could have gotten 34K without IV if I had been keeping current on the 3x CLI thread)
FU (app'd 4/30, 30 day message, called roboline 2 weeks immediately, noticed it was in my account on 5/3 with 11.6K SL)
Discover It (app'd 5/1, instant approval with 7200 SL)
AmEx ED (app'd 5/3, instant approval with 10K SL)
So I started the week with 2 cards/$38K available and as it stands now 5 cards/77.8K available. Planning to garden for the next 2 years or so, although I will attempt SP CLIs.
Congratulations! Those are some great results!
Congrats on App Spree Approvals
Congratulations on your 3 great approvals!!!
Now, that's how you do it! Great job and congrats!
And welcome to the garden...
A quick update to this... I had my AmEx 6 month from my last CLI marked on my calendar today. I wasn't planning on requesting a BCP CLI, mostly because I'm carrying a 10% balance, but I was surprised to receive an email from them raising my credit limit from $30,500 to $35K. My balance is about $3K.
I thought it was curious that I received the email on the exact 6 month date from the last CLI with the usual blurb: "We periodically review the credit limits on accounts and make increases based on customers' excellent history with American Express. We hope this increase provides you with greater flexibility to make purchases on your Card as you continue to enjoy the benefits of Card Membership."
