Macy's Store Card was just upgraded to Visa!!!

I have some great news to share!  My Macy's store card was just upgraded to the Visa card.  They gave me a $1500 limit. (without a hard or soft pull!) I have read many threads that Macy's does not upgrade their card unless you have an inviation...but that is not true in all cases.  I called last Friday to request an upgrade and the CSR told me that I would have an answer in 30 days.

 

I logged into my account today just to review my account and I noticed that instead of the platimum store card picture, there was a Visa store card...my eyes almost jumped out of my head!  I then decided to call Macy's to see if there was some kind of mistake, but when I entered in my store card account number, it said that it could not be found.  So I chose the option to speak with the CRS and she told me that I was just approved about an hour ago and the system was updating.  

 

 I just love Macy's!  I have only had this account since March of 2009!

I remember that great feeling when you're approved for something you want and something you've worked for and deserve.

 Thanks!

 

I don't know if Macy's is just in giving mood because of the holiday's or what, but I honestly thought I would not get approved based on a lot of the threads I read. I figured what the heck, the worst thing they could say is no but the best thing they could say was yes!

hmmm I might give them a ring then..hahha They just bumped my CL up to $5700 from $3200 the beginning of the month..I've done ALOT of business there this year..I bought a new sofa, just the norm shopping and when they bumped my CL up I purchased a new area rug that was about $400+...

 

do they automatically bump you up to the next card if you spend so much in a year?
