Is Macy's on a rampage for reducing CL's

I have heard from like 3 friends having CL's SLASHED to current balance. I owe nothing on my store card but my visa is nearly maxed out, it's 3 on my debt snow ball, are they going to start chasing me when I really start throwing money at it?!

Re: Is Macy's on a rampage for reducing CL's

Are you referring to the CC or Store card?

 

They are still giving pretty generous CLI on the store card. Can't speak to the CC, though.

Re: Is Macy's on a rampage for reducing CL's

On 11/19 I called and was granted the following gli's:

 

Macys store card - $1,500 - from 3,500 to 5,000

Macys Visa - $700 from 2,700 - 3,400

 

Very curious.  Had your friends done something to spark their ire?

Re: Is Macy's on a rampage for reducing CL's

I have to agree with the other members and say that Macy's is being generous out of nowhere- they bumped up my credit limit from $600.00 to $2,000.00 dollars today. I called a few days ago, and the lady told me to call after the 20th of this month, as that may qualify me for an increase. Very excited to see the increase on my account. Sorry, to hear about the decrease, I truly hope it works out for you and your friends. Best of luck
