Re: Another Walmart Store card to Walmart Discover card question. -sorry-

Is the upgrade an offer that you can decline - or do they automaticcally roll your  Walmart card over to a Discover after a certain point?

At the Walmart Credit card site, my FICO is 699.


well my walmart fico was 738 when i got the card. 

and was only approved for the store version. 

 

from what ive read some people see upgrades in a year some havent in 3

ymmv but i wish the best for you. 

 

and btw ive been getting discover pre approvals up the ying yang lateley.


Really ? I had a store card but closed it a while back. I applied again recently because i wanted a Discover option and i got it with 680ish TU at the time. I had the store card for a year and got no upgrade though


yeah my problem was at the time of app i had only one brand new non store revolver. 

thats what i think factored in. 

They gave me a 800 starting cl which from what i read on other posts is high so maybe i was just borderline for the discover? maybe if they gave me 1k lol. 

my new cards didnt hit my report yet but they inq's did. 

tu had 4 3 less then a year. 

about 40% util (which i know hurt me alot) 

aaoa at the time was about 1yr 2 months. 

 

since then though ive gotten a chase freedom, amex zync, and a 2k limit mastercard. 

and 4 pre approvals for discover more. (august till now)

Re: Another Walmart Store card to Walmart Discover card question. -sorry-

I tried to call for CLI's in the past and it didn't help.  But today both DH and I got letters saying I went from 700 to 1000, and he went to 1700,  His score is 670 and mine is 713.  Whatever.

Re: Another Walmart Store card to Walmart Discover card question. -sorry-

I was just wondering...

 

Has anyone ever tried to call a backdoor/xec office numbers to GE to get their Wal-Mart store card upgraded to Wal-Mart Discover?
