Has anyone done this before? If so could you tell us your score, current balance on normal macys credit card, and credit UTILIZATION and inquries when upgrading to AMEX THANKS!

It's not upgrade. They will open a separate Macy's Amex if you get approved. They will pull hard from EXP. I heard they need over 700 to get approved for Macy's Amex. My MACY'S AMEX has rewards and I don't know it's for all of them. I use it once every three or four months.

My bad yes Ive heard that it will report as a new acct. Has anyone opened a new amex acct after reviewing your macys store acct?

How long do you have the Macy's card? I had the Macy's card for over two years when I applied for Macy's Amex. I used it almost every month.

can confirm rep said it was a seperate account.
had my macys card for 2 years next month with a 3.5k limit and 0 balance usually reporting. 184 right now since i bought a few work shirts.
rep said it will be a hard credit inq. they can "upgrade" but will just be a new account and close my old one if thats what i wanted too do. i said i was just looking for info and didnt want any pulls on my credit.
