I got this card in 2000 with a CL of 10.5K and use it all the time. After about a year it went to 16.5K, then to 18.5K where it is now. I've never used the "no preset limit" option but was told that when planning a big purchase, it's a good idea to call it it will put you over the limit.
The other thing to know is that you can negotiate the APR. My APR started at 19.4--this was before all the fed cuts-- and now is at 7.9.
I have found the no-preset option handy, especially when travelling on business. Similar dynamics of an Amex card (no preset limit). But remember, if you go over you C/L at closing date, your minimum payment will include the exceeding amount (ie - if your minimum payment is $72 and you are over your c/l by 1K at statement date, your minimum will be $1,172).
How much "over the limit" you can go varies on your payment / purchase habits and usage pattern.
I went from a 3,400 c/l (citi silver aa) in '01 to a 10k revolving c/l today (citi AA world p/s). I have gone over my limit by about 3K for business trips but paid the exceeding amount before statement date.
One caveat -- Citi AA World does not report your revolving C/L or high limit.
Other than that, its a great card product. Have racked over 90K miles this year alone from purchases / idine / at&t long distance, etc.
