Wal-mart to Wal-mart Discover

I've been anxiously awaiting for a Walmart Discover upgrade from my Walmart Store Card.    Looks like I'll be waiting forever, since I've had my Walmart card since Oct 2011.  I realize it's not forever, but I've read how others get their store card upgraded or they get an invitation upon signing in to their store card -- NO DICE either way for me.

 

I asked Cust Serv how to get an upgrade and they've said to reapply.  I reapplied this morning and got the 7-10 message, which I didn't think was too good.  So I called 18772947880, not a backdoor number and they wanted to verify my cell phone by sending a text to it to have me verify.   Finally, they said....okay, you're approved for 3K.

 

Granted, it's not the way I wanted this to happen and she did say, it's a new account -- not an upgrade as you can have both.  Oh well, just thought i'd share!

Re: Wal-mart to Wal-mart Discover

Does the Disover have added benefits that the store card doesn't have?

I too log into my account everyday hoping to see that upgrade offer :smileyvery-happy:

 

I'm not holding my breath, though. I rarely use the card, but it's good for util and free FICO so I keep it open.
