3rd Macy's Amex CLI --- +$7,500!!!

Hi All!

 

So the sayings are true, Macy's Amex is Citibanks Synchrony card Smiley Very Happy Quick background on this one. 

 

  • 10/05/19, applied and was approved with a SL of $1,000
    • charged items for $250 after account opening, PIF in same month
  • 12/14/19, requested a CLI for $10,000 and was countered with a $5,000 increase -- new limit $6,000
    • charged items totalling $355 after this CLI was approved, PIF in same month
  • 02/07/20, requested a CLI for $10,000 and was countered with a $7,500 increase -- new limit $13,500
    • I have not charged anything to this card since the prior $355
  • 03/14/20, requested a CLI for $10,000 and was countered with a $7,500 increase -- new limit $21,000

In (5) months this card has grown from $1k to $21k. Activity is extremely low and they appear to be quite generous with the CLI's. I wasn't sure if they'd stop the CLI's since my total exposure with Citi is getting up there (compared to my income), but from what I understand and can see, this card is not really factored into the "core lineup". 

 

Existing Citi cards:

  • $40,700 Citi DoubleCash, opened OCT '15
  • $16,500 Citi Dividend, opened SEPT '17
  • $6,600 Citi Shell Black Mastercard, opened OCT '19
  • $21,000 Macys Amex, opened OCT '19

All of the Macy's CLI approvals have been SP's. I'm not even sure which score they are bumping up against but my EQ F8 is 750, TU F8 is 765 and EX F8 is 753. If you've got a Macy's card, SMASH THAT BUTTON!! 

 

My combined total credit line is $688,000 Smiley LOLSmiley Very Happy
