I like you got the 1k starting lol but I am new to credit in general so I'm not sure if that is the reason why they gave you a low SL (new to Amex side I mean for your reason since you have the 13 year back up) but I also got a 3k or 3500 I think it was SL with Chase ROFL so it just seems Amex isn't to generous if you are starting out or if you have no relationship with them but I have been told will be generous down the line....while my Chase and others tend to grow and grow my Amex has been a No to the CLI a few times (which I also was told was normal) I don't see the big impress with them yet but I'm hoping Next Year will be my year LOL......Congrats on Joining the Fam. and *cheers* to us both LOL
Do not fret the SL.
Amex gave me a $1000 SL on my CASH MAGNET card a year ago. I was disappointed, but I was just at the start of rebuilding my relationship with them after being on the outs with them for the past 20 years... I actually got 4 new AMEX cards within the past year, and have built up a great record with AMEX during that time span.
I actually just called them today to ask a question about one of my other AMEX cards, and at the end of that conversation the Rep just came out and said I was eligable to upgrade my CASH MAGNET to the BLUE CASH PREFERRED card. He even said I could get the bonus offer of $250 if I spend $1000K in the first 3 months. I accepted the offer. I had it in my head to ask if my CL would be increased with the upgrade to teh BCP, but I didn't want to press and then have them start asking me extra income questions, so I just took the upgrade as is, and maybe they will increase anyway without me having to bring it up... lol
Guess my point is, keep your spending at high enough levels, and your account in good standing, and the offers and CL increases will come.
In a year, your limit could be $18k+ so dont swet it
