Re: Wal Mart new card look!

@Jon Stur Congrats for you!! Thats strange that others arent offered upgrades when they have a high credit card limit. What was your store card limit when offered the upgrade?

I did it through the automated system and received a new card the next day. Turned out they just happened to be already sending me one, so I additionally got the one I requested a week later.

They are sending this new card design because all of the old cards are GEMB - which is now GECRB they included a letter explaning that when I recieved my new card in the mail was sorta outta the blue I was like **bleep**?

Re: Wal Mart new card look!
I actually love my Walmart Dscvr... The 15 cents off a gallon of gas is a pretty good deal. I've been using that and pif the past couple of months! Lol :-)

Jonstur... Was it after four statements that you got approved for that cli? It's only been two statements since I got a cli, but I have missed that "luv button" lololll!

Re: Wal Mart new card look!

I like the shiny orange one:smileyvery-happy:  But, my old blue one still gets me gas discounts and that colors me a very happy blue color.  The new blue card looks about the same shade as the new Bluebird.  Does anyone else think so?

Re: Wal Mart new card look!

Has anyone else gotten this email? Apparently I should be expecting a new card soon even tho I just opened my account a month ago. I guess I'll be getting their new orange card.
