Random Question about Limits and CLI

Postby websteth » Sat Sep 01, 2012 9:42 am

So random question. First my background. My first AMEX I ever had was Blue since 2003. It had a $18k limit on it. Over the years I have added Zync and Platinum and made them my main card but always kept the blue. Last year I added the Delta Gold and SPG to get the signup bonuses but do use the Delta Gold for all my flights.

So, back to my question. When I added the delta Gold, Amex moved some of my Blue's credit to that card and extended me a little more credit as well. with the SPG, they moved all of that credit from my Blue card leaving all of my Amex credit cards at around 9k each. Part of me wants to get my Blue back up to what it was as it was my oldest card but, I'm afraid to ask for a credit increase since I really don't use the card that much and I really don't want to trigger a FR. Thoughts? I tried to go online and move credit between cards but, I think with the new laws in place, I can't do that until after the cards have been open over a year. I got a letter saying they weren't open long enough last time I tried.
