All Macy's Visa Cardholders

Hi everyone,

 

I have a Macy's Visa and I have recently seen posts that cardholders have either received letters notifying them their accounts are going to be convereted to AMEX cards or that thier accounts do not qualify for the conversion.

 

As of today, I have recived either one of the letters.  If you have received a letter, when did you receive it and if you don't mind sharing, when does your visa expire?  I think they are sending out letters based on when cards expire, but when I call I keep getting conflicting information.  :smileymad:

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: All Macy's Visa Cardholders

I don't know what you would be mailed, you have to call in and submit application to be upgraded to visa... maybe because they are so close to conversion they can't submit for upgrade?

I have no idea. You are right their systems are not setup yet to handle the upgrade. I am going to call them tomorrow and see what they say. I have tried for visa upgrade 2-3 times before and they always declined it. I am not very excited about asking them for upgrade to Amex. Only reason I want to ask is the card looks really looks nice. Other than that I have no love or desire for the upgrade.

Re: All Macy's Visa Cardholders

Thanks all for your replies!

 

This information really helps. My card does not expire until September 2011 so I guess I will one of the last accounts that are reviewed.  Macy's tends to do a poor job training thier customer service reps when they are going through changes.  I was told by three different CSR's that I would receive my card by the end of last week, well come to find out, my account has not even been reviewed yet!   Luckily I have a contact in their Executive offices and I called her she told me how this whole conversion thing works...Macy's plans on having all accounts converted no later than Feb 2011.
