What are your limits on Amex Gold Delta Skymiles?

I'm just curious to see what everyone else is getting for limits on this card. I was approved yesterday for $5k and I'm nervous to ask for the 3x CLI at 61 days if nobody else has super high limits. It feels like a fluke that I got it anyways.

Thanks guys

Re: What are your limits on Amex Gold Delta Skymiles?

My dad has a $50K CL on his Skymiles, although I cannot remember if he has the gold or platinum.  A $15K CL is small potatoes in the AMEX world, so I would go for it.

 

EDIT: I just texted him and he has the Gold.

I applied for it last week and received $10k off the bat with the 50k bonus miles. Then I called in to get the MSD match from my other card and was given another 1000 miles for some reason. I think I unlocked the "appreciative customer" achievement.

Current limit is $15K

 

Was given $9.5K when approved (06/2013).

 

Requested $15K a couple weeks ago and it was granted.

lhcole77 - I definitely would have asked for $24,000....You're initial limit was $9,500 more than a year ago, and you've only requested a limit increase of $5,500? 

 

I can see that you're a major contributor to the forum, so there's no doubt in my mind that you know about AmEx 3x cli...Is there any reason why you didn't request more?  Just curious what the logic is behind it.  Maybe I can learn something.

I can't remember what I started out with. I have the platinum and currently have a 20k CL.
