Macys CL increasedddd due to backdoor numberss!!

[ Edited ]

Not sure if this is the correct section to post this in but I'm just so excited I couldn't keep it in! I called one of the back door numbers for Macys credit cards and had my $100 CL increased to $1,000. Only took a five minute phone call and the CL increase was immediately reflected on my account. I've had the card since 2011 and in good standing. Glad to have a CL I can actually use.

The truth is out there...

I am not eligible for the CL increase but since I missed a payment because I made it 10 min after cut off time, I got hit with a late. The lady was nice enough to remove it. I will take that and RUN!!!! Woohoo!!!!

Really?!! That sucks! I could have sworn they had a 5 day grace period...hmmm.

 

I was actually looking to upgrade to the AMEX card but the lady did a CL increase instead. I don't know which one was better! LOL!

Re: Macys CL increasedddd due to backdoor numberss!!

if it was a amex upgrade from what ive read its only branded and has no pull with amex. 

as for the cli congrats. 

 

i apped for my macys 2 months after i coapped for best buy and they gave me a 100$ limit. 

then after a year and a half of using it once or twice never carrying a balance they upped to 2000 auto cli last may and i asked for a cli in july to 3500 and they gave me instant approval not even a soft pull.

Is it usually a soft? Definitely would like an increase but not at the expense of a hard pull!
