Code Blue: Concorduser Center Escapee!!!

After my room door closed, I escaped through a window and ran straight to Macy's.  I've been a longtime shopper there and I've read so many positive things on the boards about their rewards program.  
 
One of my favorite parts of the store is the perfume counter.  I really have a weakness for expensive perfume.  Gucci, Dolce, and Prada -- Oh My!  I ended up spending way too much on perfume and then the lady at the counter asked if I wanted to apply for a store card.  As I wavered and tried to recall why I was admitted to the Center (um so I wouldn't app, duh!), the lady mentioned the 20% off I would get on today's purchase and that she would give me a bonus 20%.  I relented and apped for the card and got another bottle of perfume.  (Darn, she was good!)
 
I was approved on the spot for $600 so at least it wasn't a total waste.  Does this indiscretion mean I will be evicted from the Center?  Smiley Sad

I got 20% discount on the spot and the other 20% will be reflected on my statement (supposedly).

What can I do so that the Center will take me back??  Is this "zero tolerance" policy new?  Whatever happened to second chances?

Re: Code Blue: Concorduser Center Escapee!!!

I think it's worth the trade off of losing your free room versus a 40 percent discount.
Here we go again...

The zero tolerance policy has been in effect from day one.  Just ask our founder, who banished himself and has not even given himself a second chance.
 
Pssst....I agree with FM above. Smiley Wink

Oh well, at least I smell really good as I roam the streets free.  And yes, the discount was nice.  In fact, the 20% new account discount is good for two days.  I think I may take another spin around Macy's tomorrow after work.  Smiley Very Happy
