Synchrony - Walmart - Capital One


Recommended Posts

Some interesting tidbits in the news articles about the contract change. 

 

First  Barron's is reporting that "Synchrony expects to convert some of the existing Walmart private-label cards to general-purpose cards."

I would assume they are referring to the co-branded MC as opposed to the store cards which are obviously subprime.  I wouldn't be surprised to see these Walmart MC's changed over to a 2% card or something since SYF has been trying in recent years to reach more prime consumers (Marvel, Cathay Pacific). 

 

Next, I also read that Goldman Sachs was in discussions for the Walmart portfolio.  Apparently they are considering entering the CC business.

I'm going to guess that we're not talking an actual conversion.  That would lessen the value of the deal that Walmart cut with Cap 1.  I suspect there are provisions in the existing contract that would contradict such a move.

 

Instead, I read into the text that Synchrony looks to issue new accounts to its stronger Walmart cardholders.

"Synchrony executives said on Thursday they have two options for the Walmart portfolio: sell the $10 billion in balances or retain it and convert qualifying customers to general-purpose credit cards. They said both are accretive to earnings relative to renewing the contract with Walmart."

 

"Synchrony said selling the portfolio would free up $2.5 billion of capital, which it would use to either repurchase shares or reinvest in its business."

I decided to hit the love button on all my Synchrony cards yesterday. I got an increase from $8,000 to $10,000 on my Walmart Store Card. I was a little surprised they'd increase the CL on an account that will eventually be transferred to Capital One, but I'm not complaining.

 

Now all my Synchrony cards are at least $10,000. Is that the highest limit you can get through the love button? Do I need to call and talk to a credit analyst to get limits higher? I'd like to get my PayPal Cash Back MasterCard above $10,000. Anyone got that number?

Interestingly along the lines of this thread I got notice from Synchrony last week that they're converting my years old Sams Club card to a MasterCard. What was to me interesting is that the pictures of the new cards weren't branded Sam's Club. Generic card with the MasterCard Logo.

Did they give you any information on a new rewards structure for that Mastercard?

Nothing at all about rewards. I'm assuming that since the Sam's Store card didn't have any then the MasterCard they were flipping it to wouldn't. Interesting disclaimer though at the bottom was that if credit eligibility has changed then they wouldn't issue the card. (not that that should be an issue for me) That and that all would be complete by end of October.

I thought 25K was the limit I stopped asking for CLI's on that one and the amazon....

The limits have shifted over time. 

 

KayveBear has a $50K Walmart.  I haven't seen anyone else over $35K. 

 

I was once granted a CLI to $45K on Lowes by a Synchrony Sr UW via phone and Synchrony called me back minutes later and told me haha just kidding we can't give you that amount. 

 

Even the $35K limits don't seem like people are getting them as often now.

I had zero success getting CLIs from Synchrony on any of my cards, including the W*****t card, either online or via the backdoor number.

 

So I tried Capital One shortly they took custody of my W*****t account.

On the plus side it looks like you're okay on inquiries.

Got the identical letter to this, dated 10/20/19. It even has the same 4th bullet point devoid of substance.

 

Interesting note, the "bank" my account is listed as being owned by is Capital One N.A., not Capital One Bank (USA), N.A. Is yours the Mastercard? I just have the store card.

      Any explanation would be great. I thought to list a series of events would be better than some long paragraph. I have pics and proof for all events below. 
       
      Mid May: Ordered Vehicle (checked credit score showing 730 at the time)

      June 7: Toyota Financial Services received payment for old lease

      June 12: TFS closed account
       
      June 30: TFS reported to the credit bureau account closed on June 12

      Friday July 9: Credit was pulled by dealer (first of knowing of outstanding balance on a said closed account)Was able to get bumped to a Tier 2. (Nothing was reported nor sent to me that I had an outstanding balance)
       
      Monday July 12: called Transunion because their score was what was pulled that hurt the deal. Transunion said that they show nothing of delinquency on my report AND show no history of it being removed nor it ever being on there in the first place.
       
      Evening July 12: called Experian because no other apps were showing a tier 3 credit score. They also said they had no history of it ever being on my report. (Talked to about five differnent people) They put me on a callback list to speak to a supervisor. Associate had said supervisor was in a meeting and would call back.
       
      July 13: Called Experian again to figure what happened. Received notifications that my credit score had increased 66 points and delinquency was removed notifications on Experian app. (No certainty that it was removed from report because they said there’s nothing bad on my report. I guess I take their word for it??)
       
      Evening July 13: received a notifications from credit apps that Toyota Motor Credit has reported positive activity on a outstanding loan balance. Loan paid.
       
      July 14: Called TFS to request document to cross reference dates.
       
      July 16: Called TFS to speak to Toyota Motor Credit. Turns out there’s no one to speak to in that department. It’s the same as calling TFS. Called Experian again to ask why they are just now reflecting on my credit that I had an outstanding balance that was just closed on July 13 not what TFS sent which states that it was closed in June 12. Experian had told me that the account was closed in June but when I explained to them that’s not what I’m seeing in my emails and notifications, they became combative and hung up on me. No one can tell me how and why on July 9, a inaccurate mistake cost me money and no one can send me my credit report to verify that there’s no delinquency. TFS agree that someone dropped the ball (but not them) and is willing to send any and all reports they have on my accounts. All credit bureaus has yet to send me to any documentation of removal of alleged delinquency and I will never know what happen on July 9th that cost me money. I’m paying more than I should and I could’ve been out of $1k(nonrefundable deposit to order vehicle) because I will not sign a tier 3 deal. Who knows how long I would’ve been without a car in this market if that were true.

      Hello,
       
      Does anyone know either by experience or with a good degree of certainty if American Express (AMEX) will decline card membership if you have ever filed bankruptcy against them? I have read somewhere that they keep a permanent “barred from membership list”.
       
      Is this right, no. However, as you probably know a financial institution may choose to do business with whomever they choose (a rather broad definition). I have read that even if an American Express account has been fully-discharged by a successfully complete bankruptcy case, they will no longer choose to do business with you.
       
      The reason I am asking is twenty years ago, I listed them as a creditor in my Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. I would like to apply for membership in the future when my current FICO is a bit stronger. However, I do not want to burn a hard-inquiry only for it to be declined.
       
      I apologize if I am not posting in the correct area. Thank you.

      So- my credit file has not significantly changed in a long time (and I qualified for long-term zero% auto loan back in April).
       
      I do carry significant balances on my credit cards, but always pay (auto-pay) significantly more than minimum payments. 
       
      but something triggered an odd cascade in the last few weeks. 
       
      I got notice one of my Synchrony accounts had suddenly had the credit limit dramatically reduced. I contacted them and they said they periodically check credit report and make changes. The letter they sent indicated high balances to limit on cards. 
       
      a day later ai get another letter from Synchrony- for a second account with them was having the limit reduced...
       
      we all know this impacts your credit score, as it messes up your utilization %.
       
      today, I got notice from a different bank- that, due to higher credit utilization rates, they dramatically reduced my limit in that card - 
       
      Which of course now even further rips my credit score...
      And this afternoon, I get notice from Synchrony that my Automotive account (that has never had particularly high balance can limit) was having a limit reduction down to the current balance!
       
      What’s going on?  I have NEVER been late, never payed just the minimum payments on any accounts... 
       
      Is there some massive banking “surprise” on the horizon?
       
      I did recently put a credit freeze on all 3 bureaus due to someone filing for unemployment with my name/SS# and I filed a police report on that. 
       
      I have paid credit monitoring service- and there is nothing new or odd on my CR...
       
      So what’s going on?
