PC'd GECRB Walmart to discover

Opened my store Walmart account about a year ago, at a 500 CL. Increased 4 months later to $600, then 4 more months later to $1800. Just got a credit alert that a new account was opened, GECRB/Walmart DC, called and away advised I was being given the upgrade offer to the discover version. In anyone else's experience, does this come with a CLI as well? Should I take the offer? 

 

Ive been workodors or  over a year now to establish myself with some prime lenders. Opened Amex ZYNC last November, with this discover upgrade could I finally be entering prime territory?

Wallet: American Express ZYNC, Barclaycard Financing Visa, Capital One No Hassle Cash MC

It was accidental. The first one didn't seem to go through when I did it on my iPad. Sorry!

Re: PC'd GECRB Walmart to discover

if you got an alert that a new account was opened, isn't the offer already accepted? Either way an upgrade sounds good to me

I thought you had to "accept" the upgrade.  Did it just show up on your CR as a hard pull without your knowledge?

Re: PC'd GECRB Walmart to discover

The upgrade afaik won't trigger a HP, however your walmart account will be closed and a new one will open.

From what I've read you don't need to accept the offer, they mail you the card and you can decline the offer, otherwise it just kind of happens. I may be wrong though.

When I called, they told me that if I turn it down then they will just remove the new account listing. There was no hard pull but it may lower my score because of aaoa. Strangely the rep couldn't tell me if I was getting a CLI with the upgrade offer.
