500USD might sound low, but there is good way to get a higher credit limit quite fast. Let say if you spend like 1500USD every month, you can make a 1000USD payment to your card in advance, that way you already have 1500USD credit limit, then use it to pay for all your expenses, if by any chance do you go over your real credit limit (500USD), pay the difference, that way, you used your full credit limit and you paid for it, plus you prove to AMEX that you are capable to handle a higher credit limit and were able to pay for it. They will increase your credit limit with no hesitation. I already did once, and it works, and other member of the forum did the same thing to by his laptop using the same method and AMEX increased his credit immediately.
