Having an AMEX limit of 25K+ is said to be a trigger for a financial review.

For business and personal cards does it go per card or both combined?
(i had a 5k limit and called for a increase and they instantly gave me a increase to 15k)

I have a 5K limit on my SPG personal card and 3K limit on business card (with same name on it). If I want to close the business account, can I ask them to simply move the 3K over to the personal and save myself a credit pull? Or not worth messing with?

I don't think they do this anymore, even less likely for biz to personal. But you can always try.

I read they actually do allow credit line transfers again but I haven't verified that yet.  Call and see.

Can you do it online, like the old days?

i recently got approved for an amex cc, and in a separate letter received from amex, it said, that i can transfer credit from a different card to the new one. when i called they said they will only transfer credit to this specific new card and not to any other.

OP here:

I guess it's nice to report the happy ending (or should I say continuation) of my story...

BH, as of today I'm holding at 28K CL on that same card. I make sure not to owe a penny over 14K though...
