Finally got Walmart Discover upgrade offer!

[ Edited ]

Signed into my account today, and the offer to upgrade to Walmart Discover popped up (account has been open since 7/07). Also noticed the following language on agreement to upgrade:

 

In order to use your new Walmart Discover card, you must call to activate it upon receipt. Once activated, your existing account will be CLOSED and any existing balance on your Walmart Credit Card account will be transferred to your new Walmart Discover Card account. If you do not call to activate your new Walmart Discover card, after 90 days your Walmart Discover card account will be CLOSED. Your existing Walmart Credit card account will remain open.

 

I accepted the offer. The only bummer is, my existing Walmart credit line was $4500 (after most recent CLI 6/12). My new Discover limit is $4600 :smileymad:  Oh well....


CC's: AMEX (4), Alliant Visa, PenFed AMEX, Pen Fed Promise, Citi (4), Chase (5), Nordstrom Visa,US Bank Cash+, Huntington Voice, UMB Visa, Nasa FCU Plat Cash Visa, Barclay's Visa, Citi (4), Discover IT, Walmart Discover, Sam's MC, Cabela's Visa, Cap One QS, BOA (2), BMW Visa, Comenity Visa/MC (3), Ebates Visa Siggy, 5/3 RLR MC, DC Premier MC, Macy's AMEX; Several store cards.

Current Scores: EQ (6/14): 800; TU MyFico (6/14): 814; Walmart TU Fico 08 (10/2014): 813; EX (6/14): 775

Re: Finally gor Walmart Discover upgrade offer!

Not really upset....every little bit counts. My glass is half full, not half empty. Was wondering if I would EVER get the upgrade offer.

No, it just means ifyou change your mind about the upgrade, just don't activate card new card, and the original (store) card will remain open. Upon activation of the news card, the existing account will be closed. The confirmation e-mail says "if for any reason you do not want the new account, please do not activate the Walmart Discover card and call us immediately."
