In all seriousness :) Xmas spending

So..the Walmart card is looking nice right about now. Cant app til we close, but do they ever run 0% promotional deals or is it always a set interest rate?

I think I want it mostly for the FICO score..and to get a card that'll actually grow!

Starting Score: 492 02/12
Current Score: TU: 668 (FICO), EQ: 668 (FICO). EX: 651(lender pull 9/27/12)
Goal Score: 660

They had a 0% financing offer when I got the card last November. Periodically I get offers from them for 0% financing, but have never used it.
