Sam's Club Advantage Member Credit Account Pre-approval

Just got a pre-approval letter for a Sam's Club Advantage Member Credit Account. The CL is $300. Anybody have any info on this card? It says that the card can be used at Sam's Club and Walmart. I need a store card for the credit mix. I know that it's just a pre-approval but it sounds promising. It says to call an 1-800 number to accept the card or bring the letter to the Sam's Club counter with valid ID. Any thoughts on this?

If they are telling you to bring your ID..  It's likely yours if you want it.  I have one, would have liked the discover version...  applied too soon...  no history yet.

Re: Sam's Club Advantage Member Credit Account Pre-approval

I just read the back of the pre-approval letter. It looks like GE is the card issuer. There's some instructions for the sales associate to follow. Part of the process is they submit an application to GE so it's definitely not automatic. I'm waiting on a decision from Target Red at the moment so I'll wait on that before I try this, although I don't have high hopes for getting approved on the Target card.

Too late! :smileyindifferent: I was in DMP but rid myself of it a few months ago. I was only in it for a few years but if I knew then what I know now...... Anyway if i get turned down for the Red Card, I'll give it a shot.
