........that you can use your Macy's credit card at Bloomingdales?? As a card holder of both, this is a good and dangerous thing.

Re: Did you know........

Not sure exactly when but I was making at purchase at Bloomingdale's yesterday and noticed the  electronic machine had a Macy's logo. I asked the cashier if they accepted Macy's charge card and she said yes. I know the same same bank that issues the Macy's charge card issues Bloomies as well. This reminded me of back in the day how you could you use your Marshall Fields card at Target because the same bank issued the cards are they were subsidaries.

Re: Did you know........

Bloomie's is owned by Macy's Inc (parent company of Macy's)...not to mention their cards are underwritten by the same bank. It's very well possible.
