Complaint Review: Walamrt
I was approved for a Walmart Credit Card via Synchrony Bank (credit limit $300) over a year ago. With it, I subsequently made purchases in-store over time, paying the monthly bill on time every month. Several months ago, I was even approved for a $750 credit limit increase. Last month, however, I discovered that Walmart/Synchrony Bank lowered my Walmart Credit Card limit back to $300.
I contacted Walmart Corp. at the beginning of Oct. 2017 for an explanation, at which point they initiated a review of their own. Yesterday, I received a letter stating that the lower credit limit was due to adverse "key factors" on my credit report, and that my credit score will not "likely change significantly."
Wrong! When Walmart/Synchrony Bank sent the letter (dated Oct. 12, 2017), my credit score was already 50 points higher (and still climbing) then when I requested the initial explanation, and the acct had paid down to a $0 balance. It appears that Walmart/Synchrony Bsnk did not take any of this into consideration, because if they had, they would have discovered that I have a 630 credit score, and all my other revolving accts (6) have been paid down to $0. Instead, they relied on older informastion: from Sept. 7, 2017 according to the info detailed in the letter they sent.
Once the purchase of my house is complete, I'm going to cancel this acct as I believe it will be a detriment to my credit health moving forward.
