Macy's keeps online apps CLs low for a period of at least 6 months as opposed to in store applications.
 
I don't know about Old Navy, I got mine at the register but the limit was MUCH higher than the online Macys limit.

Re: Store app vs. online application

It seems as though there is motivation to approve based on your purchase vs. just an interested consumer.

Re: Store app vs. online application

I haven't applied in store yet for any. Although when a few I know have- they were approved, with 'ok' credit. I think it does have something to do with how much you buy - limit wise.

Macy's wasn't too shabby with me online either - I was approved for $1000

Was the approval instant for Macy's?  What do they pull and what kind of scores do you have?
