Does everyone who gets a new Macy's card start with the red card, or do they get a different color based on their guideline limit? I see that there are 4 different card colors on another post, and that the card is based on spending levels. How would a special purchase play into this? For example, if someone opened a new account and received a $1000 limit, and at the same time also made a special furniture purchase of $2200 on the special event tradeline, would they still start with a red card, or would it be platinum because of the $1000 limit or $2200 purchase?
Sorry if this has been answered somewhere. I looked around for awhile and didn't see the answer.
The Macy's store card color is based on annual purchases - not on the GLI.
After you've made enough qualifying purchases, you can call and ask for a newly colored card, but it really doesn't matter. The perks for the card (whatever they are now - they've changed) will be yours if you qualify even if you have the card with the old color still in hand.
