Well.... I think people who shop at Sam's typically spend more... Maybe that's why...or maybe you credit shot up in that time frame...

 

 

I do spend alot more there. My families prescriptions are there and they are so expensive I have to go in on a weekly basis to get them. When I applied for the sams card, it was through my account that shows my membership number so maybe they see what I spend on a monthly basis. Also, I have the wal-mart and amazon card through them and have paid in pull about 10 days after each purchase. I assume when any GE account pulls up, they all do?

Re: Sam's Club Discover approval

I got this card last November, just a shot in the dark,and was approved for $6200. use it fairly often, good for gas. recently got a $1100 cli-didn't ask for it . Just showed up. it is a pretty good card ,especially if you are going to get a big ticket item- has the 0% intrest  deal for that.

Re: Sam's Club Discover approval

I'm thinking maybe I should try to go for the Discover?? I mean I do have a Discover More and my Wally Discover will hopefully come sometime this month, so why would Sams not approve me? Hmmmm

Re: Sam's Club Discover approval
@creditdreamera When I app'd online, it had me apply for the discover and if that was not approved, they would try for the storecard. When it was not instant, I called and she said I was approved for the discover ...so give it a try....it was only 1 pull

Re: Sam's Club Discover approval
Is this a store card or can it be used anywhere Discover is accepted? Also which CRA did they use for the credit check?
