Another Succesful AMEX 3X CLI!

Recommended Posts

OMG! Can't believe it worked!

 

DW applied for 3x CLI, from $9,400 to $28,200, instant approval! :dance:

 

It was on her Amex Blue everyday card.

 

Her FICO scores:

 

Exp : 789

TU : 798

Eq : 806

 

Card used lightly over last 61 days, PIF always. She wants to achieve credit pimp status in the next year!!

 

Thank you fellow CB'ers for all the great advice! (special shout out to BobWang, Ubercat, mendlesshon, HoustonLynne, CV91915, SecretAgentWoman)

Congratulations! My 61 days are up on the 15th. Is it best to call? Use the website? Chat?

 

We just used the LUV button on the website.

just put it into my calendar... do you count 61 days or just do two months and a day? also, do you request 3x or is that what they offer, assuming you have handled it well? and can you then do it another 61 days later?

 

I started with a very low $1K SPG so I would like to get it up there, most other cards are up at $10K level...

Do yourself a favor, wait till 62 days just in case. Not just two months, 61 days minimum.

We requested 3x her current limit.

 

Not sure when she can try again, I've seen it in the forums and would have to go back.

Not sure if the rolleyes was intentional or not, but I did answer your question correctly.

 

You can request a 3x CLI at 61 days, BUT you can only request a CLI with Amex on any of your cards every 6 months. 6 months from now would be the soonest you could request a CLI on her BCE or any other Amex she has.

I'm a little confused how OP requested a CLI over 25K without being asked for a form? (Forgot which one) to fill out.

 

I thought 25K and more

It's not automatic, just more likely.

 

You're thinking of the 4506-t.

Yes, that's the one I was thinking of.

 

I actually thought it was required.

 

I don't even think I'm going to attempt to 3X My 15K up to 45K. :lol:

Sometimes it can be the key to high limits with Amex. There's at least 1 CB member with a $100K limit on a single card (the single card limit), and that came after a 4506-t.

 

If your income supports high limits, you have nothing to lose. If you want to be cautious, request $25K.

I think to be on the safe side, I would like to get both my cards up to 24K and then combine them eventually.

Nice limit. Not sure why you cant believe it, with those scores and potential pimpdom in the next year.

 

She better get used to this, not for the faint at heart :ph34r:
