My Macys credit limit is a measley 100.00, i just concerned at how they are treating my account. Since they granted me this small credit line, i dont have any bad items in my credit report, just a collection for 200. My other balances are pretty high, but i am getting them down, i just wondering if it would be worth it to ask for a GLI!
Do they look at your account activity, is it a hard pull of soft pull?

I actually saw higher GLIs (relatively speaking) when I had at or near $0 balances for both Macys and Bloomies. My last round of GLIs came with about $300-$500 balances that extended beyond 3-4 months old (balances were higher) and my spending for the past year was about $3000 for Macys (in fairness, $2000 of that was for a bed) and for Bloomies, my spending for the year was about $700 with about $500 of that in the past 2-3 months.
DID ANYONE HAVE A BALANCE ON THEIR CARD WHEN THEY ASK FOR THE GUIDELINE INCREASE? ALSO HOW MUCH WAS YOU SPENDING PER MTH?
