Amex online credit limit transfer is back
« on: July 09, 2012, 04:26:07 PM »
I dont remember seeing anyone else post this but I just noticed that I am getting the option on the Amex website to shift CL between between credit cards online (in my case I had the option on my Hilton and Starwood personal cards).
This option was available near the bottom of my "recent activity" page on these individual cards.

I tested a $10K credit shift and it was approved and showed instantly.

This option is obviously not available on the charge cards and I didnt see it on my one business card.

(Note, I thought I saw this option a few weeks ago but I wasnt paying attention and didnt verify it at the time. So I dont know when this actually went into effect.)

Soft pull maybe?  I haven't heard of anyone getting a hard pull.

It looks like you only need to leave 500 on the card. In the past any CL over 25k created undo attention.

I also suspect not everyone may see this feature depending on their individual account history with AMEX.  I know I had it for awhile then it disappeared right after my FR (even though I passed with flying colors and cards/limits were untouched).  As of right now I have 2 cards which should definitely be compatible and it is not showing up for me either, although 1 was only recently opened.

Is it instant for everyone?

Regarding the pull, from my experience over the phone less than a year ago they told me they definitely would be doing a hard pull.
Also from the fact that they ask for total annual income it makes me think they do a pull as they usually go hand in hand.
Can anyone who did it please clarify if they saw a pull and if the transfer was instant?

What would the annual income question have to do with pulling? There's no corroborating data on credit reports.

My guess is it's instant.
