Well as well all know we should take what CSR's say with a fine tooth comb but i just thought i'd share my experience... I called Walmart Discover customer service to inquire about if we were going to get a new reward structure like the Sam's Club during the conversion to Mastercard and the representative replied that we will have the same benefits and rewards we have now..i sure hope shes just uninformed...


IME, the CSRs for GE cards generally don't know what's going on.   I'm guessing Wally will have a similar rewards structure to Sam's Club, which would make it a very desirable card for me.

Well because currently they both of the same structure of earning rewards so why make one different now and plus ... you figure most people with Walmart Discover honestly only use it at Walmart why because the rewards are mediocre... So why improve one and leave the other same... Just my opinion ... Not to mention it seems those two tie into each other because you can use Walmart Card (store) at Sams and vice versa so i think Walmart deserves a revamp as well... 


I understand where you're coming from, but from a purely credit card perspective, as it stands today Costco beats Sams hands down.  Most of us dont even use our Sams club credit cards when we go there, it just helps with util.  If Amex permitted more than 4 revolvers I would be a Costco member in a second.  I like the idea of getting a little something more back for my paid membership to Sams

 

Has anyone heard Walmart will be converting from a reliable source or is it kind of an assumption?

The conversion from Discover to MC is widely known, but the new rewards structure is entirely speculation at this point.   My speculation from the get-go was that an improved rewards structure would be part of the deal.  I think it's also somewhat likely that Sam's would have a more generous structure than Wally, in order to gain memberships.  However, the Sam's and Wally Discover cards had a similar reward structure (i.e., Discover More w/o bonus categories), so that's still a possibility.

Re: Walmart MasterCard

The terms of Sams Club MC can be found here http://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/Credit-Cards/The-terms-and-the-agreement-of-Sams-Club-Mastrercard/td...

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

Re: Walmart MasterCard

It's possible it could have rewards like Walmart Rewards Mastercard Canada.

1.25% in walmart and 1% wherever Mastercard is accepted.

+1. I got upgraded to the Discover last month but no real benefit to me using the card outside of Wal Mart. Now, like you said, hopefully the people who make the decision on the rewards structure for the Wal Mart Discover also realize that if they add better rewards to the card, they will start seeing more usage on the card.
