I have a Blue Cash Preferred I can go up to 18k on, an SPG card I can do 6k, and I'll be getting rid of my Delta Gold by the end of the year.
I'm leaning towards getting the 18k, so other card companies will see a large credit line from amex, and when I get rid of the Delta Gold I'll funnel that into the SPG card.
Looking at your signature and seeing your current limits, I really don't know that Amex would go to $18K, I mean, $500 on Chase? I can't say for sure, but already having 3 Amex's and requesting an increase from $6K to $18K could risk an FR. I would go small first, maybe request $10K total ($6k to $10K) now, then at the end of the year close the Delta and allocate that limit to SPG. Then in March request like $5K on the BCP for a total limit of $15K. Even then I don't know that you will get that much of an increase off the bat. Again, it never hurts to try and the worst they can do is either decline it or offer a counter CLI.
