Re: Just got denied for Walmart Credit card?

Don't feel bad - that's typical for GE. They are nothing like Barclays or Chase when it comes to recons.

AMEX SPG $30K | Citi TY Premier $20k | PenFed PlatRewards $25k | Barclay Arrival+ 40k | Chase Freedom $20k | BofA AMEX $15k | Discover IT $20k | | NASA Platinum-Advantage $20k | CapOne Quicksilver $15k | Amazon Card $10k |

My middle score is 617. I have seen other people here with lower scores and approved. I have a year and a half car loan that has been on time every month, also about a month ago opened a capital one secured credit card. However I have 2 charge offs and 1 collection that has been paid. Also, My mom has a walmart cc and she has me as an authorized user, payments have been ontime and her util is 29%. Any idea why I was denied? Also, per my LO ( trying to get a mortgage) I need more revolving credit so what should I do if I keep being denied. Also my scores are experian 632, equifax 628 and TU 617.

Walmart GE doesn't recon. Some GE CCs will, but WM won't.

 

617 is really low. I can't say that I've seen anyone with lower scores being approved for GE. Also, 29% util is on the high side. Being an AU on her card may be doing you more harm than good. <10% is ideal.

 

Are the COs paid? If so, I'd GW them and GW the CA, too. If they're not paid, maybe you can PFD. I'd really try to work on getting the baddies off your CR. Beyond that, you just need to wait and keep paying your car loan and CC on time, and wait for your score to improve over time.

That's their internal score system.  Don't worry, it's not a FICO score.

Starting Score: 504
July 2013 score:
EQ FICO 819, TU08 778, EX "806 lender pull 07/26/2013
Goal Score: All Scores 760+, Newest goal 800+

Current scores after adding $81K in CLs and 2 new cars since July 2013
EQ:809 TU 777 EX 790 Now it's just garden time!

June 2017 update: All scores over 820, just pure gardening now.

In all honesty those scores are quite low, and if they pulled TU (most likely), that is not even borderline.  You can always try to recon and explain away the baddies.

 

 


GECRB does not do recons, you have to re-app.

GECRB uses an in-house scoring system, which is what the 403 score is. If the scoring model does not reflect 300-850 they did not use a FICO score. They are known to use either depending on the card your applying for. AFAIK they use FICO scores for CLI's.

Discover is known to use FICO scores.

AMEX uses FICO scores.
