I stopped asking at $3.7K. Six months later they offered me the Visa.

Re: Macy's GLI :)

I would feel better about asking had I actually bought something from them lately. They remarked on my non-purchases the last time I got a GLI. I brow beat the dude into it. Told him i knew exactly how the system worked and that if he didn't tell me exactly what the computer screen in front of him said I would hang up and call the next CSR in line who would. He folded like a cheap camera. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Macy's GLI :)

That reminds ME....got to call them.  I think we're at $1600.  Thinking of purchasing a new mattress in October.  Good excuse to ask.

Re: Macy's GLI :)

I just added a major purchase account to my card. 1500$ for a bed frame and bed set. Man I love macy's finally a card that grows with you.

 

 

They did pull a report, because I had a fraud alert on file so any major changes to the account result in a hard pull. 

 

Worth it for more purchasing power, and i got 0% for 6 months! gonna pay it off in that time, and its there to use if I ever want to in the future.

 

Going to pick out the bed after work today!

Those are tricky. They may cost you a hard (it doesn't always), it reports as a separate TL and they may close it once you've paid off the purchase. (Yes, I have heard of that being done.) The big +++ with the major purchase account is the 0% APR for however long they give it to you for. Macy's is the best!

 

Let us know what type account it is (that is a two digit account type designator) and how it reports.

 

(Last time I had an open major purchase account with them was 30 years ago! I bought wall to wall carpeting for my first apartment. That carpeting was still there and good shape when I left 27 years after it was laid!)

Re: Macy's GLI :)

I opened mine five months ago---$600 limit. Only used it twice (small purchases).

Just pulled TU to see if my mortgage had posted and had to do a double take! They increased my limit to $2,000!

I thought you had to really use it to get increases??

 

Hooters gave me a $400 increase last month that I didn't ask for. Thing is; my balances are up quite a bit compared to my usual one or two cards reporting under 9%. Smiley Surprised

Re: Macy's GLI :)

They coded it as a type 36 account.

 

So now I have a type 20 (regular card)

and a type 36 (major purchase account)

 

They better not close it, i'd be mad.

 

 

I dont know who they pulled or weather or not it was a soft or hard.

 

Who do they normally pull for people in NV?
