Took the plunge and applied for Macy's in-store. Approved! How can I tell what my CL is?

Finally decided to try for the Macy's card.  Applied when purchasing in-store.  How can I tell what my credit limit is?

Zounds.  I was expecting $100 or $200. 

 

Thanks for the number - you made my morning!  I called - it's $1000.  Happy happy joy joy.  I have an Orchard at $700 - so this is my highest CL.

You will have to call the CS number and at least listen to the recorded info for your account (which you can do 24/7) to get info on your GL (guideline) amount. It does not appear on the bill. Macy's is the only account I have every had that follows bizarre practice.
