Macy's Underwriting

I tried the numbers in the backdoor thread, but I couldn't find anyone that would do a CLI on my Macy's card without a hard pull. The first rep said the credit bureau decides if it was a hard or soft pull (lol!), so I called back. The second rep first told me my card was inactive and therefore first needed a hard pull to be re-opened (lol again), but after looking more closely at the account he corrected himself but said unfortunately the system was prompting him for a hard pull for CLI.

 

It is my understanding that some of you have had success getting a CLI with a soft pull. Does anyone have a different number I can try?

Re: Macy's Underwriting

I have the store card. I used to have a $1500 limit, and then somehow it started reporting as closed by account holder with a $100 limit. So I took a hard pull to re-open it in June... with an $800 limit. At least it still reports as the same tradeline with the original opening date.

Re: Macy's Underwriting

Two months ago I initiated a chat with a representative to have it raised. She said since they already have all the information, they will make an internal decision. I do know that they soft pull every few months for reviews though.

Re: Macy's Underwriting

I personally got a soft pull for a cli from 3k to 3.5 in July.

I called the number on the back of tr card and hit 0 for a person. She called underwriting and I asked for 3.5 and they auto approved.

Card was 1 year 8 months though used once every four.

Yeah, that's why I took the hit to have it re-opened. It's one of my oldest tradelines, so I figured it would be good to keep even if I wasn't going to use it. But lately I'm starting to think with that small of a limit that it might be hurting me.

Re: Macy's Underwriting

My Macy's card received a CLI at the 6 month mark.  It was auto and there were no hard pulls.  The card had minimal use and no balance.
