Massive CLI from Macy's AND (drum roll please....)
I just called Macy's and asked for a CLI, the CSR that answered the call asked how much I was looking for and I told her $100-$200, (I was at $400, I got the card in Dec. 2007, it started at $100). She said that she had to transfer me to the credit department, so I waited on hold for about 5 minutes listening to "Every Breath You Take"...lol. Then another lady came on the phone and said hello Mr. U_E, congratulations, we were able to approve you for a "guideline increase" to $2000. I was stunned!!! I think I even yelped...lol. She then explained that the reason I got a low limit to start with was because they wanted to see how I handled the account for 6 months. (I usually buy $60-$80 every couple months and PIF before the statement cuts). She then said was there anything else I can help you with? A loud bell went off in my head just about that time and I said, "Yes, would it be possible to see if I qualify for the Macy's Visa? Or would I have to apply for it?" She said, "Let me check on that for you" and put me on hold for another few minutes and came back and said that she talked to her supervisor and that I would be approved for the Visa but since it's a different department, she said it would take up to 2 billing cycles for it to go through and to receive the card. WOW!!! Talk about a "Jaw Dropper" I was fully expecting the "nothing available" response from the CSR...lol. Thanks for all the Macy's threads!!

I JUST CALLED GOT A STINGY 200 CLI NOW 700 BETTER THAN NOTHING..
That's pretty good...You're right too, better than nothing. My Mom has a 730+-5 pts on all 3 CR's and they only started her at a $600 CL. Like I said, Im stunned, in shock even at todays bombshell!! I just hope the Macys Visa comes through. I was told once before that I would get the Visa and all I got was a denial letter about 5 weeks later....LOL.
