WalMart sues Synchrony for $800m

Admins, please move if not in the right place. 

 

Thought this was newsworthy for those holding Synchrony cards. I know they flipped my Sam's card to Mastercard which fits this mold.

Walmart Suing Synchrony

I read an article about Walmart suing Sychrony for 800 million due to Synchrony breaking an "implied promise". It also said Walmart has chosen Capital 1 to handle it's cards. I hadn't heard anything about this until today. Well, there goes the credit limit increases.

This cracks me up, first Wallyworld is mad because synch didn't offer enough credit, now they are saying Synch caused them too many losses.

Either way, I'm not terribly impressed with Synch OR Capital One... methinks that my Wallymart card is reaching the end of it's usefulness.


Last inquiry 15 January 19. Going for Gold!

Right there with you. If Synch keeps the portfolio and converts store card to general purpose card, I am closing it. 

There is nothing they can offer that's worth taking a new account hit.

If they kept the original opened date, I'd leave it alone, but they never do.

Walmart is just throwing a tantrum because it didn't get its way.












Credit isn’t just a score, it’s a skill.

Re: WalMart sues Synchrony for $800m

Sounds like Sync is going to be SOL more-so and probably lose Sams out of this as well (just speculation as they are esentially the same company as we know)... Don't want to piss off a 10k giant and the sam's club was up for as well next year i beleieve.. Sync shares fell 9% from that one announcement friday imagine if they dont get sams back how much more their shares will get pounded down.

Re: WalMart sues Synchrony for $800m

I know that Walmart specifically asked Cap One to consider the Sams contract.

I’m confused as to why Walmart and Amazon don’t eye credit in-house. They have the capital. They wouldn’t have to consider how another is handling their portfolio.

Your chosen approach can dictate what will be your final outcome. Be proactive, not reactive-
