How does Macy's Visa compared to other cards?

Those of you who have Macy's Visa Card, how does it fare when you compare to other cards?

Re: How does Macy's Visa compared to other cards?

As far as I'm concerned, having the Visa isn't any big deal. The cl is okay, APR is fair (Chase takes better care of me), but it's just another Visa. The only real advantage is that I can park the Macy's card and have a slimmer wallet. BTW, when I called them for a credit increase, they 'commented' that I had made a rather large purchase on the Visa at the competition. Personally, unless there's a fraud question or they're concerned about a lot of purchases at 'Uncle Billy's Bait and Porn Emporium', I don't want them questioning where I shop. If I had to do it again, I'd think twice on the Visa.

That would annoy the hell out of me. If you managed to bite your tongue, you're a better person than I. I'd have been asking if they have a problem with that/making some facetious comment about it not being my problem if my local Macy's can't stock the items I want to buy/asking if the CSR would be so kind as to provide me with a list of approved establishments for use of my Visa.
Then I'd probably regret it. Me and my big mouth. Smiley Tongue
