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!

No hard pull!  They must have used thier internal scoring system...

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?
