I applied for a Nordstroms card in store yesterday because I was told by the sales clerk she could not sell me an item because it was apart of the Anniversary sale and I needed to be a rewards member in order to purchase. I applied and was approved they gave me the little packet and I purchased a few items totaling $250 with my new card. When I reviewed the packet the scl was missing so I called today to find out and rep said 5000. I asked if it was a Visa she replied no. Can anyone here kindly explain if you know how it is possible to have a 5000 limit without it being a Visa. Your responses are much appreciated:🙂
don't know my scores and had roughly 6 pulls in the last month I'm going to register for credit monitoring service soon)
Hello everyone this forum has been an amazing help for me during my credit building process. I found this forum less than one month ago and I've been encouraged to start my credit journey and I feel so prepared with all the data I gathered in this short time
Congrats on the approval! I am sorry they made you sign up for the card to purchase the item.
I was under the impression that you can now be a Nordstrom rewards member without having the credit or debit card; The banner discussing it poped up for months on their site, I am assuming it had something to do with them selling their credit portfolio; and them continuing to manage the rewards program.
I never signed up for rewards; I am still upset with them. I had to sign up for their Debit card, to get the rewards(before they made the change) You would have thought I was applying for a credit card; after being approved they wanted a power bill, copy of id, copy of bank statements, and I think they even wanted a copy of my ssc. They would not let me email them, they had to be mailed in! I just gave up and shredded the card. I did not need to fight that much to have their crazy debit card.
Wow, that is strange. Well, you have your Nordstom's card, though. I love Nordstrom! Congratulations on your new card!
My store card is at $6k, only asked about the upgrade once when my CL was increased to 6k, card was about 8-9 mos. old, said I wasn't eligible. Figure I'll try again in a couple of months when it's 2 yrs.
