    A few months ago my Macy's limit hit $3,000.

    For those who didn't know, there are 3 credit increase channels with Macy's:

    - Authorizations (when you call from a store)
    - Credit Granting (when you don't)
    - There's also a third, outsourced channel, called "Credit Center". Their direct # is 1-800-537-0162.

    90 days after my last increase, I called the first two for another increase. No way. Not even a $100 increase.

    I've just spoken with the third channel, Credit Center. They pull reports left and right, but seem more liberal. Was put on hold forever. She then came back: "Your new credit line is $4,000, sir. Would there be anything else?"

    (Absolutely. In 3 months :))

    Saar,

    A very nice and helpful post. Thank you.

    I've been thinking about asking for another increase from Macy's. The last time was a disaster. They pulled a report but denied the increase. And I was (and still am) at only $400.

    So this cost you an inquiry? Hey....if you can afford it, then COOL! You are off the hook!

    I'm afraid to ask for an increase with inquiry. I'm afraid after they look at my report that they might start DECREASING!!! LOL...

    Although...maybe I should call and see what I can do about purchasing a bed on a TOP account. My back and neck are killing me! :-( I noticed they carry Stern's & Foster. Maybe I'll stop by there this evening.

    MP$40,

    They even TOLD me they were going to pull the report, and I agreed. That was dummm of me, a fact of which you notified me at the time.

    At least they told me. That's better than the Citibank method of not telling you, and then lying if you ask.

    Sure I can afford it, my EFX already has gadzillion inquiries, what difference would another one possibly make?
