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.

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

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.

100% on time payments

GE usually doesn't do recons or upgrades lol
Good luck !:-)
Traditionally GE isn't recon friendly, but with the recent CLI's they've been giving it's worth a shot.
