I started at 5k in September 2018 and got a 1500 bump in January. Wanted to upgrade to Reserve once I hit a year so I pushed a ton of spend through the card for two months and they upped it another 1500. Seems like the best way to make it happen based on DPs I've seen here and on Flyertalk. That being said it sounds like Chase doesn't like everyone and I consider my relationship with them decent enough.
I started my Chase FU card in December got a CLI a few months after to almost double....basically I just topped it off and made very large payments sometimes once a month sometimes twice or so a month and after a few months of doing so BOOM auto love! LOL but YMMV
How long how after someone got the chase sapphire preferred can someone expect to get a auto Cli on the card ?
Also if he wants to ask a Cli how long after the Acct is established should he ?
Can't ever expect an auto-CLI with Chase. I just closed my CSP days after the first AF posted. No auto-luv.
Unrelated, my Chase Amazon Prime Rewards is 29 months old, regular spend, PIF, high scores, and still no auto-luv.
Got a $5300 CSP in June. I think the most i ever ran through it in a cycle is $1200 or so...found myself with a $2300 CLI in October. Like some other posters said some heavy usage helps. Also I dont think making sure your income on the Chase site is accurate hurts either.
