They are reporting limits again.

OP, I think you have a great shot. IIRC they pull EX and when I applied, and when we all had access to our EX FICOs, they pulled a 630-645 or there abouts.

That was then, Macy's now reports CL's.

Old bump!

 

At one point, Macys stopped reporting CLs. They reversed that a year or so ago. Per FICO, my store card didn't report a CL and therefore FICO ignored the balance and CL for util purposes. My special event account didn't report a CL either but it was factored in TU98 only based on the balance and the high balance (scored like a charge card). This is no longer the case, or at least for the store card. Mine reports a CL now.

Re: What's the chance for getting a Macy's credit card??

You have a pretty good chance of getting a Macys card. I got a Macy's card in 2011. When I was approved, they weren't reporting CLs. Then after they began reporting them again...I found out my limit was only $100. LOL.

The truth is out there...
FICO scores: 764 (EQ) 732 (EX) 757 (TU) 9/14 | Goal score: 750+ (all 3)
Tradelines: Capital One QS NPSL (5.0k) | Discover IT (6.0k) | Walmart Mastercard (5.0k) | Chase Freedom NPSL (7.3k) | Citi Simplicity (9.3k)
