Macys you should really apply in store, you get much higher starting CL's.

but online I believe you should have gotten answer on spot, I would call number located in backdoor numbers up above

When I applied online I was approved instantly and it said something like welcome to the stars and then it gave me my account number. Don't be discouraged  doesn't necessarily mean not approved. Call customer service to see if you were approved. Best of luck
