Macy's AU/JU account reporting

Can you get Macy's to report an AU account? I just called them and the CSR said that they don't report AU accounts. He said I will have to be a joint user (JU) for that. I asked him if it would involve an inquiry on the JU's report and he said no. I asked him if the JU account would report with the original account opening date and he gave a vague answer that that might not be the case.

 

How can I get a Macy's AU/JU account added to my CR without a new inquiry and with the original age?

Re: Macy's AU/JU account reporting

The Macy's AmEx does report AU's. Don't know about the store-only version.

Re: Macy's AU/JU account reporting

The card I am AU on is an Amex, but the CSR said they don't report AU accounts. Guess I'll just try my luck getting another CSR who thinks otherwise.

Hmmm. OK, i wasn't precise --I know that the Macy's Visa reported AU's, but maybe now the AmEx doesn't. Or something.  :smileytongue:

 

If that's what has happened, I apologize for misleading anyone!

Re: Macy's AU/JU account reporting

One CSR I talked to said AU accounts get reported sometimes, but Macy's doesn't do it and that she didn't know of a way I could influence it to happen in my case. She said something like sometimes the CBs dig deep and pull this info and report it. But Macy's only reports JUs and that involves an inquiry to set up.

 

Wonder how can AU reporting be such a non-deterministic process? Maybe they stopped doing it for the Amexes as you say.
