Remarks Hey Roy456, you made a great decision by applying for a department store card. As long as you pay on time and don't go over your limit, they should give you good amount of increases which will look good on your report.

I have a Macy's card and they gave me a $300 credit limit increase in 2 months! I paid in full every month. They started me off at $300, so now it's $600. I spent about $65 on that card in order to get that increase.

Remarks I hate to say this but, you just missed the 70% off sale they had for one day. I took advantage over that and purchased me some duck feather pillows. They had those for buy one get one for $1. You have a good card, they will up your limit increase in about four months or so. Call in and ask for one.
