I just got a new Walmart store card and figured I would use it for doing the grocery shopping and PIF every month (we do our shop at the Walmart Supercenter so I'm going there anyway).
So I did the shop, went on the website later that evening and while it's showing my available credit as $75 (used $325 on a $400 CL), it has current balance as $0 and payment due as $0. When I try to pay it, it won't let me.
Is this just the usual thing for the first month / until the first statement cuts? It's a little irritating as if forces me to have higher util than usual and I'll take a fico hit for that, but it'll rebound.
