Macy's & Bloomies CLI after 1st statement!

Hey everyone!! I'm a few weeks late posting this because I thought I did already lol.  Anyway.... I'll keep it short, and just provide the data points along with the increase!Smiley Happy 

 

Data.......

12/01/16- both accts opened same day, for $500 CL. (Had these cards previously years ago. Macy's was IIB in 2013, and my old Bloomies acct was closed in good standing in 2009 for non use). Both old accts are still on my reports.  

 

Got cards in the mail, and Made a small purchase on both accts at opening, and PIF before the 1st statement cut. 

 

01/16/17- after SM cut, called in and requested cli (reports frozen). Lady asks how much, I say "$3k", thinking I'd either get declined or a counter offer lower.  Comes back in like 5 seconds and she says, ok your limit has been raised to $3k!  Mmmm, should of asked for $10k. Don't know why I underestimate myself! LOL! Smiley Happy

Congrats OP on the increase. So you're saying they didn't pull your  CR? Because when Citi took over my Macy's account back in 2015 I took a HP on EQ for an increase---but it was well worth it because it was pretty hefty!Smiley Happy
