I ran into Bloomingdales over the weekend... not sure why I felt I wanted the card as I have an account with my friend and have had it for like 10 years and it's a $5200 CL but I have seperated myself from almost all the other accounts he and I shared and thought I'll just get my own even though I have not shopped in a Bloomingdales in years
I did not get approved on the spot, actually it was declined.
Called just now because they were closed over weekend and she said it was declined due to an account in BK... I said Macy's? thinking in was the current account I have issues with that the joint filed on and she said no bloomingdales... I was like oh, well my bk was in 2000 that included Bloomingdales.
she said, let me check then because if it's been more than 4 years I can reconsider it if you like.
She put me on hold for about 5 minutes and came back with Congrats!
I can approved you for $1,000.00 Store Card.
I asked for Amex.
She said we can consider you for the Amex after 3 consecutive billing statements (I didn't know that quick, and sounds like you need to use it... so guess I will have to shop afterall!!)
