Wal-Mart Store card and Wal-Mart Discover

So right now I am supper excited!

 

I was approved for a Wal-Mart Store Card in 12/2012 with an initial credit limit of $600.

 

Today, I felt like calling and asking for an increase.  Instead I went to the Wal-Mart website and app'ed for the Wal-Mart Discover Card because that is what I really want.  Well, I got the 7-10 business days message.

 

I then looked up the backdoor number and called.  I asked if I could have both the store card and the discover card and the representative said "yes, but you have to apply for the discover card."  I said that I had and that I would like to check the status of my application.  He asked me if he could pull my report and verify some questions.  After a few minutes he came back and said that I had been approved for the Discover card with a $700 limit.  WOW!!  He asked me if there was anything else that I needed.  Of course I then asked for a CLI on my store card to $1200.  He again placed me on hold!!!!  I was nervous and know now that I should have asked for more.  Oh well, APPROVED!

 

So now I have two Wal-Mart cards.  Bad, but good, lol.

Congrats! Learn something new everyday. I always thought if you got one they will close the other...like an upgrade. Smiley Frustrated

Re: Wal-Mart Store card and Wal-Mart Discover

Congrats and great to know you can have both

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: Wal-Mart Store card and Wal-Mart Discover

I did the exact thing you did in January, I wanted to know if I can upgrade my walmart card to the discover and the csr told me to apply and I thought you couldnt have both but apparently you can, and I got approved for it with a 800 dollar limit! I was excited. lol

I want to be in the 700s again!
