Initial CL- $800
And thanks to everyone here--you guys showed me I could do it!

i was told they review internal history and/or soft pull. if you request an amount that is too close or exceeds your internal risk limit they may hard pull at their discreition. if your balances are maxed on all of your cards it is not the right time to ask for cli -even at macy's. you will likely become eligible only after you pay down your balances to under 50% or thereabouts. gl.
What satisfies Macy's as far a being eligible for CLI's i called last month they didnt grant me any CLI's do they soft or hard pull when you request? Ive had my account since september!

Macy's checks for a GLI (their terminology for a CLI) every 4 billing cycles. A good payment schedule, purchases in-store and online, and your internal history with them gives the best shot at a GLI.
Every 3 Billing Cycles Actually

First off congrats to LisaJ for getting the GLI from Macy's. Second, who did you call?
Just curious since my DW is already at platinum level in spending this year, but has received no GLI and no platinum card. (They told her on the phone it is every six months for increases and only once a year (at the end of the year) for card upgrades.
