Just a quick question about 3x CLI (I was recently approved for Gold Delta):
- does the request has to be on the 61st day, or it could wait a little longer, like 63/64th day?
- does it matter if the 3x CLI reaches 30k? Is there any threshold?

1) As long as you hit 61 days, then you could do a CLI from that point onward. So yes, 63rd, 64th, 107th, etc.

2) Supposedly, the threshold for Amex credit line extension is somewhere in the neighborhood of $34-35K, as reported on many forums. Anything more than that and there have been reports of requiring financial statements or the dreaded FR.
