Macy's / Bloomingdale's Credit Card / Northland Group -- Please Help!!

Has anybody had any recent success with either of these companies? I understand that PFD may be too difficult. I am looking to settle these rather soon as they have not been sold off but continue to report against my utilization. I owe Macy's approximately $710 and Bloomingdales $475. What type of offer is standard? I spoke with the Northland Group who is collecting on it and they offered 50% for Settled in Full. Please Help!! I am past the SOL for civil litigation but still about 18 months from having these fall off. Regardless, I would like to cure these balances so that I may one day in the future, have a credit card from them.

If you were to settle vs. PIF on these accounts, would it affect your chances of being able to get another DSNB card in the future?

Im not sure. I didnt ask them. Both accounts are handled by The Northland Group. I would like to reestablish with them. They used to have an amnesty program where they would give you a new line of credit matching the amount of the PAID chargeoff. I have been told this program no longer exists :smileysad:

Any success with getting this handled or anyone have any information? I owe Macys $282 and currently trying to clean up my credit. I called and spoke with different CSR's and was told that the amnesty program is no more. I plan on paying in full and then seeing if I can send a GW letter and get TL cleaned up! Any info
