Logged in and heard crickets too, RIP Wayfair fer me 😒


 

Hopefully, more cards are still on the way, but who knows?  I sent a SM on my Wayfair login and got this response:

 

As you have been informed, Wayfair is ending the program. Although, we have kept around 500 thousand customer using the Comenity Card Mastercard which is owned by us and not by Wayfair.

 

If your account is eligible, you will be provided with a card automatically. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. If you have any questions, please click the reply button.

 

Sincerely,

If that 500K customer number is real, then there must be more cards on the way. 


I sent an internet message and received the same response. Wish I had an incling of if I'm getting a MC or not. These generic responses are annoying. Lol

Re: Wayfair offering conversion to MC

My limit is showing with 0 available. According to the MC log in website, all MCs were sent out to received on or about the 11th. Those who have been converted have reported not being able to log into the regular site.

Wow, only 500k. That's nothing. I'm really wondering what their criteria was.


Not necessarily. Wayfair's customer base was last reported at 20 MILLION. 500K is only 2.5% of the overall customer based. If only 5% of those customers had the store card, that would be 1Million. I don't think 500K is that large a number..


Well, that's a lot of cards to mail out at once, especially in the middle of a pandemic.   Which is why I had to wonder if more were on the way.   Of course, we haven't seen any reports of new cards in a few days, so....

If it's any comfort I apped and was approved for 4x Comenity majors last spree... Williams Sonoma Visa, Good Sam Visa, Sportsmanguide Visa, and Caesars Rewards Visa.


I opened 4 store cards between January and April. Closed one a month ago. This one just got converted. Didn't want to risk apping a major too soon after the store cards.

Re: Comenity shutting down Wayfair Credit Card

I just called Comenity because I saw many were automatically sent a Comenity Mastercard with the closing of the Wayfair card.

 

The rep told me the MC was only sent to a certain percentage of Wayfair card holders, and if you haven't gotten one already, you aren't eligible. I asked what it was based on and she said she didn't know.

 

I'm guessing it was not on scores since I'm at around 790 across the board at the moment, but maybe because I only made one big purchase every 5 months.

 

She said starting Oct 3rd it will be open to apply for the Comenity MC.

 

Still, it's going to be a negative hit to my score no doubt.

TU:790 • EQ:782 • EXP:776 • BOAFICO8:794

This is exactly my understanding as well. I won't be reapping. I don't like the way the transition was handled. I simply turned off all my alerts from the site and uninstalled their apps. They can go jump. Not taking a hit for them

Re: Comenity shutting down Wayfair Credit Card

Dude. Just call and ask the Robolady or a CSR. I never used the luv button because there was too big of a chance they might HP without much notice. I always called to get my increases.

Plus, this is Comenity now. Not Wayfair or Victoria's Secret, etc. It might be better just to call Comenity directly since I don't even know if anyone else has the card they gave us yet. 🤷‍♀️
