I log into my account on my laptop enter "credit limit increase" in chat help . Pulls up link to enable request.  Been like this for me about a year. No sign of link f[r that long.

Worked for me.  My normal static link disappeared some time ago, even CSRs were mystified.

 

Did the chatbox thing and asked for $40k, got 7-10 day message.  But whatever, the process works.

Email received; denied, lol

 

I got 3x 6 months ago. But declined for 3x last week due to income.  Scratched my head income pretty good fico 8s in the 760's low or no utilization.  Can't remember last time I was denied by amex. Got email right after 7 to 10 day letter with the reason.

I don't understand the concern some have on avoiding the 4506-t.

 

For me, its the disclosure of as much as $100k+ in w-2g gross gambling winnings (obviously, largely offset by losses which are itemized separately).  Aggressive "gambling" activity instills an impression of potentially reckless behavior.  I'd prefer to avoid that taint, if possible.

 

No doubt I'm over stressing the risk.

Some have reported that the CLI request button has been removed from the AXP page. 

 

I don't know if it just got hidden in a place where one might not typically look (sort of like they did with the FICO score, which is still there, but not in an intuitive location) or not, but I know I was not seeing it right away a moment ago. 

It comes right up for me (I do it on Desktop, not Mobile) 

I login - go to "Account Services" at the top - and Request Credit Limit Increase is the fourth box in the top right.

Since yours shows BUSINESS address in that first box, I wonder if this is something that is a CONSUMER vs BUSINESS card distinction. 

 

Do you have it on personal cards as well as the business offering?

Any reasons cited or do you have to watch the mailbox?

From the Message Center:

We made this decision for the following reason(s): The income you provided is insufficient relative to your overall debt obligations as reflected in our records or on your credit report.

 

I mean, I guess.  Six other banks had no problem.  Hell, that AMEX isn't even in the top three of limits anymore.  /shrug

Yup that was mine too. Weird wonder of they just freaking out over the economy.  I've not ever seen that before from amex

They may be re-evaluating while watching the impact of rate hikes on delinquency. 

 

I still think that they made a major error by treating the charge card balances like credit cards and doing a paltry minimum payment.  Whatever happened to pay it in full unless you somehow qualified the purchase on the Pay Over Time categories?

no worse, and maybe even better, than people day trading and bitcoining. 4506-t is just the transcript not the entire return anyway.

Wait 91 days for next amex cli request after denial?  Almost tempted to ask for 2x sooner just for science but don't want to poke em unnecessarily 🤓

nothing to fear with amex. There was a time I tried about once a month and simply got the 4506-t request which I ignored. rinse. repeat.

I'm inclined to differ (though this is a minor nit, in the scheme of things).  Day trading and bit coining are reported as investment activities, with reporting from any one broker summarized on a single schedule, and only the summary total captured

 

Gross casino machine gambling wins equal to or greater than $1200 get reported individually.  It's not unusual for me to have 10-30 entries, each identifying win amount, casino, date and wager.   With about 3 such entries fitting on a single page, I've had 4506-t transcripts where 2 pages covers all other reported income, with another 8 or more pages of reported w-2g winnings

 

It's all a perceptual concern.  All other things being equal, I prefer to avoid such bias exposure. 

 

Although when we moved to GA in 2011, our mortgage broker had an interesting slant on things, totally accepting the "advantage" player scenario and putting me at ease when I sweated that I had moved some "mattress money" to savings for the down payment a little too late to properly "season" it.  (Bev moved ahead of me and so we bought prior to sale of our existing home).   He asked me if I had winnings documentation and I noted recent w-2g activity, but commented that obviously reflected gross winnings, not the considerably smaller net that I took home.  He said, no problem ... just need something that documents that the cash is from your own resources.

I hear you. My CPA asked me for a documentation of my losses when I included a w-2g... only that was my only gambling session of the year.

Got two notices from entities that changes were noted on my reports and, upon looking, it was line increases. 

 

Hancock Whitney with another auto-increase barely five months after the earlier auto-increase.  This one was for about a third of the prior line.  It also followed me using the card for the first time in a while.  Rewards aren't spectacular, but the bank fit the regional niche I wanted to hang onto once I realized they were going to be expanding more into Texas...I first learned of them many moons ago during my travels to New Orleans. 

 

And it appears Citi gave me another $3K somewhere in the past week.  Most recent use of that one was to add another handgun, so maybe they like seeing $500 for self-defense LOL!

Alliant raised my limit from 15k to 20k on my two year anniversary , without me asking. I only used the card to transfer a 0 pct balance which was paid off in February. Original limit was 10k and i reconned and got them to give me 15k. I guess i should buy something with it.  No email from them but all my monitoring services sent me emails and alerts.
