Re: walmart card vs discover

ive read it both ways. (sometimes stays the same/but ive read a couple people go back to their original limit) 

but you can always call credit solutions and ask for a cli to the original limit or more its only a soft pull. 

 

You would think if they deemed the person worthy they would higher the limit!

Re: walmart card vs discover

Reading through some experiences here I have also read that some go down in CL, others stay the same or go up. So really a YMMV experience.

When my card upgraded last year, I went from $400 to $2000.  YMMV.

Re: walmart card vs discover

Seriously you should not care about the CL of GE cards when they upgrade.  Calling underwriting usually nets you whatever CL you want, Discover or not.

Re: walmart card vs discover

When I got my upgraded card, the limit presented was lower than my store card limt. Before I accepted the upgrade I called and was told the lower limit was the limit my store card had when I was selected for an upgrade months prior and not my current higher limit, but my limit should be raised when the new discover  was activated to match the store card.

 

 

 

As soon as I activated it they gave me an automatic cli at activation that actually doubled my store card limit. 

 

I love GE, dont worry about the limit if its lower you can always call and ask for one, but it should end up being the same limit or higher.

My upgrade raised my CL to 3500 from 2400...
