AMEX AA Reversal

Amex recently gave me a CLD. They said if I made a $580 payment they would restore my old credit line.

 

I went ahead and just payed the card all the way off.

 

Does anyone know how long it takes or if there is another action I need to do to restore it?

How is that different?   From..?

 

Often times if AmEX takes AA (insert reasons for CLD besides non-usage) can often reinstate the CL with the stipulation of PIF or significantly lowering the balance by X timeframe.

Just for my own curiosity, do you know why they CLD you in the 1st place. Were you paying minimum payments? Did you carry a large balance for a few months?  

 

Thanks for giving some DPs.

Re: AMEX AA Reversal

They never gave me an exact answer as to why. 

I did have a balance of $1200 on there and paying $100/month.

They said pay it to $580 and we'll restore your balance.

Figured i'd just pay it all the way off

Thanks for sharing. Yep, that did it. They were thinking it was going to take a year to pay that off and longer if you were paying interest.

Re: AMEX AA Reversal

Its a bad sign if you cant even carry a $1200 balance. I dont care what lender it is , you shouldnt have to use up to your whole limit and pif to use a credit card.
