BCE CL Over 34500 Datapoint

Thank you @BrutalBodyShots, I thought I would test my luck today and I must be on the 5k gravy train with Amex. 

$34500 to $39500 today at 182 days to make sure. Smiley Very Happy 

 

Started by asking for 50k and backed out of the page all the way down to 40k with every request asking for IV.

All my credit reports are frozen and I hope to never use 40k on one card or I am sure they would have given me 40-50k

 

Typed $39500 and instant approval, refreshed the screen and instantly available.

 

One of these times I might try to make it an even number just because I am a little OCD but alot of my cards are odd numbers so maybe its good luck.

 

I wanted everyone to know because it seems all of us eventually get there with Amex.

 

When do you guys stop asking for CLI's from Amex?

250k+ CL and climbing.

Congrats on the increase! Was wondering if you can share some data points? Score? Income? UTI? I am $30k on my BCP and was not sure if I should ask for more when the time comes

Re: BCE CL Over 34500 Datapoint

Scores - around 780

Combined Incomes - around 100k

UTI - $300-400 on this card - around 2% on all my cards

 

Why not try for the increase, unless your satisfied with 30k? The worst that will happen is you will get denied or asked for IV. If asked for a IV then back out and ask for less.

 

When I was rebuilding I always wanted a card that was $5k, the more I improved my credit I always wanted a $20k card. Now my end goal is a $50k card.

 

250k+ CL and climbing.

JamP, nice work with your CLI!

 

I'll continue to try for $5k CLIs with Amex every 6 month just for the heck of it.  I really won't ever need a bigger line than what I already have, but I think it's still fun to try.

I told myself that $40k would be my goal with a single Amex line, but now that I've hit it I feel like $50k has a much nicer ring to it...
