Old Navy approval but confused

I was in the store today and applied for the card. I know the system dertermines which one you get. The person in front of me applied too and got a $500 CL

 

So I was expecting the same. I do mine and it comes back approved. So i didnt ask what type of card but on my way home, call the customer service number. She says my CL is $3000 and its the store card.

 

Excited but confused, why didnt they just give me the Visa since I have this high CL?

Thank you all. I applied because they had 20% off in store instead of 10% if you get the card plus i was buying about $350 worth.

Thank you. I am not applying any time soon, but I have had the amazon store card over a year with them. I was just curious if maybe they look at existing accounts with them and give higher starting limits on other products.

I think they are pretty independent when considering a CL on a card.
