Opened in 97 w/ $200 limit. Haven't really used this card much over the last 2 years. Last year I bougth a purse and wallet just to create activity on the account and paid off slowly to build credit. Current balance is now zero. Highest amount charged was like $170. As you might know, Bloomingdale's is a part of FDS (Federated Dept. Stores) along w/ Macy's and some other stores. Kind of like how Target and Mervyn's are a part of Dayton-Hudson. Well I just got off the phone and ran away w/ a $200 increase. Rep stated that for an increase larger than that, a CR would need to be pulled. I told him that's o.k., I'll take the $200. I'll hit them up again in 6 months. Just sharing... Happy Credit Building!
