Chase Freedom: $7000
Citi Dividend: $5500
Cap One QS: $5000
Discover It: $5000
and then the problem card: Amex BCE: $3500
I'd REALLY like to get the limit increased on my Amex card to $5000 as I use it the most, but they denied my request 6mo after I had the card, and another 6mo later. I don't understand it as Citi, Discover, and Chase have raised my limit substantially since I've had the cards. In fact, I could probably get more limit increases from my existing cards.
OMG, this is like DeJaVu (excuse me if I spelled that wrong but you get the drift), I currently carry a CSP (13,500 limit), Citi World MasterCard (5,200 limit), and Discover IT (5,000 limit), with an awesome Amex BCE card that I love and it's limit of a whopping 1,000!!! I have requested a CLI @ 62 days (Denied), 6 months later (Denied), and I'm currently waiting for my next opportunity at a CLI request but I'm sure they'll deny me again. I've seen Amex be awesome with CLI for most people but for some like me, not so much. Current Fico scores are 720, 710, and 732 so I'm not sure what's going on that's spooking them.
