I received an increase from $300-> $2500 on 8/18/2019 and then was denied last month on 9/29/2019 after successful increases with Macy's and Bloomingdales.
Decided to give it a shot again just now (over the phone this time) and was approved for:
2x CLI. $2,500->$5,000.
Not too shabby.
Congrats on the increase!!
My Nordstrom is the second credit card I ever applied for, and its my oldest active tradeline. Only use it twice a year these days, just to keep it active. Limit has been stuck at 2,600!
No problem, I am always a stickler about clarifying with the customer service rep and making it explicitly clear that if a hard inquiry is required, I would like to cancel the request. It has worked well for me thus far.
