I called Amex and asked if I could move some of my BCE CL over to EDP. The CSR said it would not be possible until my EDP had been open for at least 90 days. **
It does seem odd that they would allow "true" CLIs before that. After all, I wasn't asking Amex for more credit - just to move some of the credit I'd had since 2014 to a card with better rewards.
$4.5k on EDP is adequate for me, especially with my habit of making a mid-cycle payment or two. $6k sitting on the BCE is just a waste, though. An $8.5k EDP and a $2k BCE would be better.
A similar request with Chase - to move some of my CSP limit over to Freedom - took about 2 minutes from calling Chase to its completion. Maybe it's not a completely fair comparison, since the Chase cards are both over 90 days old.
**The Amex CSR just called me and said I had to wait 60 days, not 90, to make the request.**
