What is your overall CR like? Numbers of Inquiries?

 

If not too much recent inquiries, the chances of you being approved is more than likely.

 

Good Luck, keep us updated if you decide to apply for it.:smileyhappy:

IMO you should be good for the store card.

i think you may be able to get a macy's card but the limit may be low.  I started off with a 500 dollar limit when I got mine because of some negative things on there.  Then I was late by one day and they dropped my limit down to 200 dollars.  For six months I made on time payments and they increased my limit from 200 to 2000.  So even if you get approved and get a small limit, just work in paying it on time and it will increase over time.  Also, I applied online and got approved.  I've heard some people have better luck in the store because they can contact customer service from within the store but i've had better luck online.

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. I started with $300 and it quickly increased to $3200 within a couple of years. Just know that the CLs don't report and therefore it won't help with utilization per FICO scoring.

Why doesn't Macy's report CL's?   Does that negatively impact fico at all?
