Re: Wells possibly to buy Discover?

I hope it doesn't happen though I have no concrete feelings on the matter. Applied for Wells & Discover the same day last year. Discover approved me, Wells denied. Now Wells is hounding me with pre-approvals but I shred them. Discover gets my luv!

Then I'm glad I don't have the Discover card because I don't like Well's Fargo or their products.

I will have to close Discover if, this happens. I hate Wells Fargo!

Wells Fargo sucks.  I would not be happy if this materializes. :-(
