GE Upgrades

I apologize if this is answered elsewhere, I searched for the answer and found bits and pieces but possibly not a complete list.

 

I was curious which GE store cards offer upgrades?

 

I know the following, based on reading information on this site:

 

Walmart can upgrade to Walmart Discover

Banana Republic can upgrade to Banana Republic Visa

Old Navy can upgrade to Old Navy Visa

 

Are there any other cards that are backed by GE which can upgrade in this manner?

 

And finally, does anyone know what MAY be the general criteria required for these upgrades (ie. CL and time with account in good standing, etc.)?

 

Thank you all in advance!

Re: GE Upgrades

I think all the store CARDS will upgrade to either a visa/amex/discover/mastercard, the only things that wouldn't apply to this rule would be financing offers for like furniture or something which doesn't involve a card but simply deferred payments. 

 

That is my guess at least Smiley Very Happy

I don't think any of those stores offer Visa/MC/Amex/Discover versions of their cards at all. Only stores in that list I've even heard of are Rooms to go and Ikea xD

Re: GE Upgrades

JCP used to offer a JCP Rewards MasterCard but no longer. So that card also doesn't upgrade into anything.
