Re: Macys Upgrade to AMEX

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.

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.
