AMEX CLI advice

Ok, so May 5th is my 61 day mark, but my statement closes on the 6th. I have paid my balance down to zero and my green card has a $30 dollar balance. My question is should I go ahead and apply for the 3xCLI on the 5th or should I wait a couple days after the statement closed so it gets reported first?

Re: AMEX CLI advice

Are you requesting a cli on a Green card?
That can't get a cli; it's a charge card haha 😳

Nah, the Green card is his other Amex, apparently has two by description.

 

OP: That's basically what I did when it came to my own 3X CLI and I also waited past the statement close as LS suggests.    Good luck!

There is no "rule" that you have to ask for the 3x CLI precisely on the 61st day...Smiley LOL! I would wait until all my ducks are in a row for the best chances.
