Walmart / Discover Card

Which one of the numbers should I call to talk with someone about the walmart discover card?

 

I applied last night for the Walmart Discover Card and I was instantly approved (it came up as the Walmart Card). I want to call in to see if I can get them to reconsider me for a Discover card instead. I've seen  people with a worse credit score, credit report and less credit history than myself approved for it so I was hoping to use that as leverage.

Re: Walmart / Discover Card

From what I have heard they try approval for discover card first if that doesnt work out by default you are considered for store card...someone chime in if im incorrect pls

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: Walmart / Discover Card

You are correct. I was hoping to call in to a recon. As I said, I've seen people approved with much worse conditions than mine.

Traditionally GE isn't recon friendly, but with the recent CLI's they've been giving it's worth a shot.

Re: Walmart / Discover Card

The people who give the good clis can't do account upgrades; Ive asked them.

I encourage the op to ask them... Just giving my experience:-)
They are generally a pretty accepting bank; I think this is why they do not allow many exceptions with regard to recons or manual bankcard upgrades.
