Macy's Card CLI denial!!!

I called to request CLI for my Macy's Card. I requested to increase from $3500 to $5000.  asked me my annual income to process CLI . I was on hold on the line for almost 5 min.  It came back with denial meassage and will get letter within 7-10 days. I don't know they pull hard or soft.

Re: Macy's Card CLI denial!!!

Sorry to hear Ron 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Was it a HP or SP?

Re: Macy's Card CLI denial!!!

I would also be curious to see whether the request ended up being SP or HP... Let us know what the letter points to as far as reasons.  Sorry to hear Ron Robot Sad

Re: Macy's Card CLI denial!!!

My partner keeps getting screwed by Macy's too. He opened his card in April with a $400 CL. I called in and got him a CLI to $1,000 in August. Called in on Black Friday, and they gave him a whopping $100 CLI. He has scores above 700, we use the card a lot, have a good income, and he has credit limits that are a lot higher. I just don't see why they are being so stingy....

Sorry to hear it. I have had the account since 2006 (when they were May Dept stores).  I was surpised when I got denied for CLI. My score was 782. I got perfect credit history and my credit utilization was around 1%.  They sounded like they didn't want to give out any CLI to anyone.
