What Number is My Security Code?
When you apply for a Macy’s credit card, they give you access to a store account or an American Express card. The security code location is different based on the credit card you receive.
All American Express cards come with a four-digit security code on the front. You can locate it above the account number and right below Macy’s name.
If you apply for a Macy’s credit card to use for retail purposes, then you will get a three-digit security code on the back. This code needs to be verified.
If you are confused about these security codes, you can dial the retailer’s customer service support at (888) 257-6757 for assistance.
