Macys approved me.

I burned an affiliate store Hudsons/Marshal fields ten years ago kept getting denied, Well about  a week ago went online and registered an account and today I received an email saying apply for a Macy's card so I said what the heck and went for it. Well a screen came up and said  Welcome to the Stars this is your new card number You can start shopping now. However it didn't tell me my credit limit. Should I call CS? I hope this isn't a mistake maybe their in the Christmas spirit?

Macy's does not provide your CL when you get approved for their card.  You can call CS at 800-593-2543 and find out what your credit limit is through the automated system.

Re: Macy's approved me.

Congrats on the new card!  You might wanna call into their credit dept to see if your limit could be raised to do some Xmas shopping :smileywink:.  I'm sure they might accomodate you.

$100 CL is a typical approval for an internet Macy's app. They may give you more credit when you first use the card in a store.

 

For the reference of others reading this thread Macy's should always be app'ed in-store.

Re: Macy's approved me.

Thank you Jefftca925  good advice I can't buy much with a 100.00 dollars at Macy's!!    I will call and ask for an increase monday. BTW the only reason I apped online is because they sent me an email. Macys had turned me down so much in the past I had gave up on apping with them until I recieved an invitation to app for their card  Oh well im still doing the happppy dance!!!!!!!!!!:smileyvery-happy: even with a 100.00 cl.

Good for you!  The card will definitely grow with you.  Plus it's a great store to shop at.
