Am I eligible for a Walmart Card?

Am I eligible for a Walmart Card?

I'm at 57% utilization currently, that's going down. Looking at tax return time to pay it off completely. Never had any lates, always paid on time since I got these cards. As you could see in my sig, I'm recent to credit. I applied for the Walmart card back in September of last year, and I got denied. Do you think I have a shot?

Re: Am I eligible for a Walmart Card?

I would say wait for both of your accts to age to 6 months before you app again. 

Also work on that UTIL.

Sigh, fine. i'll wait another month. I want another card to lower the UTIL, lol. But yeah, I'm being consistent.

Re: Am I eligible for a Walmart Card?

     I have really bad credit. I applied for a Cap Plat card 2 weeks ago and was thrilled to get it. Then I stupidly applied for Citi Simplicity and was denied. Then I said no more aps. But yest applied for Walmart card and got 400 credit line... and i have bad credit. They wouldnt even give me my real fico scores because i have no credit cards in the last year. nothing at all reporting.... but they still gave me a Walmart card. So I don't wanna be blamed if you get rejected, but if I can get it anyone can. I have a Federal Lien on my report and a creditcard account that I settled  for like 50 percent of what I owed that is dated about a year and a half ago and thats my total credit report. If you want more store credit cards maybe try to get a popup pre approval from Buckle or Victorias Secret or Express.

   

                                                 Good Luck

Re: Am I eligible for a Walmart Card?

Yeaup just lower your debt ratio and BAM your wal mart card is on its way. Its an easy card to get doesnt require much just a score in its 600s and a fair history. GOOD LUCK!

AAoA: 4 months

 

My total util dropped to 30%, just an update. But, uhh just wanted ask should I wait until AAoA goes up to 6 months, or just for my oldest credit card to hit 6 months, because it did a few days ago?
