I have had the Red Card since 2013 and had very little in the way of credit limit increases. The last of the two brought my limit to $1100. Today I got two letters from Target and oddly enough I new what was inside. (Well didn't know but guessed right, I figured I had a 90% of being right.)
One letter stated my new credit limit of $4000. Which was a concern that was going through my mind while walking to my home. I was thinking what is the use of a Target MasterCard with a $1100 limit. And then my mind goes oh the small envelope is the new limit, as I stick my key in the door to open it.
And yes of course the other envelope was the upgrade offer, which I read through very well to check to make sure there wasn't something I would miss. Specifically, any indication that there would be a new starting date. You see I know what Walmart does with these upgrades and I try to warn everyone here about it so they can make an informed decision. Nothing, so then I called to make sure of that. I was told that no new account opening date, just a note that it was upgraded.
So four years after opening the account I can join the seldom seen ranks of the Target Red MasterCard.
I am actually expecting a few more to chime in on this as others must also have gotten the upgrade.
Thanks and yes it does, hopefully others will get it. (I wonder did I get it because of how much I spend at Target, literally nothing many months.....)
I received 2 letters from target (on the same day) One was the cli 5000cl( i have been getting cli every 6months) and the other letter informed me that my red card was being upgraded to target mc.
Congrats! Perseverance is paying off for some Target holders
