A couple of day ago I requested a CLI on my AmEx Blue Cash and was aproved immediately on the website. Today I received this email from them...

Thank you for your continued Card Membership.
I have had the card for about 17 months. Opened with a $2,500 limit, automatic increase at 3 months to $3,500, and I just requested it to be raised to $10,000. Now they are telling me I have been selected to raise it another $1,400, which would put me almost a thousand dollars over a 3x increase from my previous limit.
Do you think this is just what their internal system rates my profile at? Has anything like this happened to anyone else before?
