Walmart and Discover card

hello all,

 

I've had my walmart card for over a year now(13 months) and last month i was given an auto cli of $1000(from $900), so my cl is now $1900! i love it! my question is when do you all think i might get the offer to upgrade to discover? are there any trends i should look our for? is there any specific time frame i should expect an upgrade? i have used the walmart card heavy and sometimes PIF and sometimes just the minimum payment. Right is the UTI is at about 20%.

 

Thanks peeps!

Re: Walmart and Discover card

It took me about two and a half years to get the upgrade to WM Discover, but I started from really low scores.  They seem to send out the upgrades around the holidays every year.


Starting Score: TU: 566
Current Score: TU: 741 (Discover FICO); EQ: 755 (MyFico) EX: 774 (FAKO)

Re: Walmart and Discover card

From what I have seen its based on time and credit score.

The higher you can get your credit score the faster you will be approved.

Re: Walmart and Discover card

Most people that get offered the WM are generally those that can qualify for a regular Discover. Are you signed up for the free credit score? If not do so. As for the time, on average it seems like @ 24 mos. or so. I was offered mine after a little over a year but I qualified for the WM but opted for the store version. Some people never seem to get offered. It seems like high use and a good score are what gets you noticed...

hope so. 

even though the card will be around 5 months. my walmart fico has never been below 720. and my fico's here are high 690's borderline low 700's

 

i was shocked when i only got the store card but it started me at 800. now it at 3k with a cli(that i asked for) last month.

im not too worried about getting discover soon since i have my chase freedom and my bank card. and this jan will be apping for costco true earnings. if i get that ill have more then enough credit to work with until all my inq fall off completely.

Re: Walmart and Discover card

I think they also look at what current experience you have with other all purpose bankcards (mc, visa, disc, amex) :-)
