Re: Macys CLI Question

I'd say at least 6 months.

Re: Macys CLI Question

Re: Macys CLI Question

Either 4 to 6 months. I requested a increase from $100 to $1000 after a year. Macys doesn't seem to do auto CLIs.

not true. 

started with my macy's dec 10' and had a 100 cl used maybe 2 times and then didnt use it for 6+ months. i looked online this june and said my limit was 2k.

 

after discovering this wonderfull site i called the number on the back of the card and kept hitting 0 until a rep came on. (those darned auto systems) 

i asked for a cli and she was like oh you wanna take part in our upcoming sales and i was like sure. 

she asked how much i wanted and i said 3.5k not to be greedy but 1k more then my highest limit. 

she called uw and had me on hold (supposedly) and approved me automatticall over the phone and said it should reflect on my next statement and they had just begun reporting to all 3 ca... 

(reports prev said no limit reported just high balance) 

 

all was done soft pull. 

 

so 2 years with the card and went from $100 to 3.5k

YMMV I guess. I was speaking from my own experience. I had my card for a year stuck at $100 CL. It only increased to $1,000 b/c I called customer service.

(i said 26k which was true atm)
