I can't say for sure, but if you don't really care to have the Visa I would avoid it just to be safe. The same thing happened to me with Walmart.
My store account was "upgraded" to a MasterCard. They sent the card in the mail so I activated it without thinking too much about it. They closed out the Walmart store account and hit me with a new account. No HP or anything, but it still pissed me off a little because I wasn't expecting it and would have had no interest in activating the card they sent me had I known that would happen. Fortunately my credit is in good shape and it didn't really hurt me too much, but it still would have been nice if they told me. A Walmart MasterCard is pretty useless to me.
