Thread: target upgrades
January 24th, 2008, 01:31 PM #1
hi every one i was reading about the target visa upgrades and this is what i found on a different website regrading it and one person said she called the number on the back of her card and it told her that she was being upgrading to a target visa and some people was saying they was getting letters in the mail saying they was upgraded and this is what a lady said that a CSR told her:
"She said that they are upgrading over a million redcards to visa cards. She said that they are currently converting 20,000 accounts per month."
so hopefully everyone will be upgraded very soon this was on the creditboard ( i think) and i just found this on creditnet
"You will begin to see them soon, the beginning of September the upgrading of Target Red cards will begin to existing cardholders. November 1st, the Target Visa will be rolled out to the stores. Both cards will exist, the Visa will be the card of choice, due to the better interest rates, the rewards program, the microchip. If a Guest does not qualify for the Visa - or - chooses not to select Visa, they can receive the Red Card, same as now if they qualify."
ps i havent got a letter to upgrade and i called and got the same thing account information etc. ect. so maybe later i will hear the words upgraded or get the "letter"

Hold on for a minute, let me go and check my mailbox.
By the way, I think I am going to do what Eric is doing, it is about time that I shut these low limit cards down and keep the ones that I have 2-4 year history with. He said that his scores rose up because of it. I dont even use the target cards anymore so I think the are going to by pass me. My nephew has been going to GameStop to purchase used games so I really dont have a use for it. Walmart is my main store.

Meya, if you want them to consider you for their VISA, you're going to have to make way larger purchases than chocolate and soda.

How can I make a large purchase @ Target with a $200 limit? All you have to do is purchase some soap detergent and cleaning items. That is $200 right there. I don't go there really so it doesn't bother me at all. I am just waiting on the top dogs. Roof, Roof!

Roof, Roof? LMAO Meya it's woof, woof. Meya, if it's a new account, then close it. Who knows, your score might go up for having one less new account ;)

Well $200 is not bad for starting, at least we can buy the cleaning detergents and household things from this ;)

I don't think AMEX would approve someone with a Target card. Target and AMEX are always parallel, they never meet.

Clifton, you're right also. AMEX would think that they would be putting themselves at risk since they give high credit lines and would think that someone with a low income wouldn't be able to keep up with the charges on their AMEX card. No offense to any Target shoppers, but that's just reality.

I dont hear a valid argument here, and hjm331, where is your proff that AMEX will discriminate against Target shoppers? For everyone in the big business, there will always be a cheap shopper.

Am I the only one sitting here waiting for an cli from target after 6 months of having the card? I am about to close the account as of March 1 if I do not get one by then.

I opened my Target card in 04/2007 I got a CLI of $300 making the CL $500 in 07/2007. I paid my account in full each month. I havent gotten anything from them since and its been like 5+ months...
