They have occasionally done this, but not consistently. I think they send a postcard offering an upgrade.

My understanding is you have to apply again for the Discover... there seems to be confusion beyond that by CSR rather you could end up with a second walmart card or if they will just deny you.

My mom tried to upgrade her Chevron card to the visa and ended up with a second chevron card!

side note:  Walmart Discover is not a good card for revolving...


GEMB has changed the 13.9 - 22.9 range previously relied upon for establishing new accts and decided all new cards will be warmly welcomed at 22.9% :smileyindifferent:
