Walmart MasterCard

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...

Its new its gonna be changing to Mastercard Network all Discovers will be transitioned to Mastercard http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-04-04/wal-mart-picks-mastercard-for-processing.html

 

and in comparison to the other thread created for Sams Club mastercards which are gonna become 5% gas, 3% restaurant and travel and 1% everything else i was inquiring if Walmart cards will get the same reward structure during the switch to MC.

Re: Walmart MasterCard

I have no clue honestly its a very new article so most are still finding out i hope they give us more information soon but all of this according to the article should be completed throughout the year and Discovers will be phased out.

I dont think Walmart people will hear about it that soon ... They are handling Sam's Club Discover by June and Walmart near end of Summer so i assume you guys heard first because you are converting before us... But it would be great to hear about it on Aprils Statement crosses fingers....

Re: Walmart MasterCard

I dont see where the expectation of Walmart following Sams MC reward structure is coming from? You also dont pay for a Walmart membership and as a paying Sams club member and card holder of both cards , am glad to see them improving this card so i actually use it. Sams Discover in its present form is no competition to Costco TE. It will be interesting to see if any changes come down from Amex TE.

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...
