Sams Discover...Approved

I decided to apply for Sams Club Discover yesterday in the store. I was instantly approved for $7,200.00. They told me I could use $3000 until my card comes. I asked the csr was this normal. She said noticed high approval amounts within the past week. I have a business membership. I don't know if this had anything to do with it. I have been a member of Sams since 1999.

Nice!  That's a terrific starting CL.  I wonder how much your 9-year-old club membership had to do with it.
 
Congratulations!

mrsanderson,
This was my last application for this year. I wanted something else with a high credit limit besides AMEX. I have read so many horror stories, I don't even want to use it.

USC08,
Do you know how long it takes for the card? I could not believe it when the CSR told me the amount.

I don't know how much emphasis Sam's Club places upon length of membership history.  When I first joined Sam's Club, I was approved for, but chose to decline, a Sam's Club Discover card immediately after I submitted my membership application at their customer service desk.
