Nordstrom, how I love thee

I was in Nordies doing a bit of shopping and decided to stop in and see if I can get a CLI. I told the CSA I did not want or need it if it required a HP, but she was not sure of how it was done. She was sure it was not a HP.

She put me on the phone with corporate (they have their own bank.) I had asked for a 3K increase. They asked for my salary and informed me that most of the time they do no pull whatsoever. If it is a larger amount they will. They also said they can do them in six month increments, so if it is shorter than 6 they won't. For me it was 2 years.


She put me on hold and came back, granting me 1500 instantly and said that I can do it again in six months. This is with no pulls at all.

This is the store card; not sure if it applies to the Visa.


And I did not even have to step out of the garden. I love Nordstrom.

Congrats! That's the same information I was told when I got my increase last month. I noticed they had been SP'ing me for the past 3 months. Next time, also ask for an APR reduction. Smiley Wink

I should try a CLI. I have the store card with a $1K CL. I have had this card for close to 15 months now

Definitely! I followed the advice from here and waited after my 6 statement. I went in, they called Corporate and my limit went from $1000-$3500 no HP. I asked about the upgrade and they told me to ask in November. It was a no go on the APR reduction, I'm currently at 18.99 Smiley Sad
