My Amex Delta Gold was my first $20,000 limit. I didn't think I would ever get to this point since I've started my rebuild in 2011.
Wells Fargo Platinum 2.100 (5/2011-cld 7/12/14)
AmEx Platinum (6/12)
Barclays Apple (6/12)
AMEX Gold Delta (5/13)
Marriott Rewards (7/14)

My credit score :cool:
EQ: unknown
EX: 762
TU: 752

With American Express you can request a 3 times credit limit 61 days after opening your account. Here is a link to another thread http://creditcardforum.com/american-express/11235-61-day-cli-success.html
It worked for me and many others.

Worked for me as well too. Had an opening CL of 7k and 61 days later I asked for 3x online and was instantly granted a 21k CL.
