New Walmart scores up?

New Walmart scores up?

Just checked my Walmart account, and I have a new TU of 674, up from 652.   It shows 'Your new score as of Feb. 4, 2013 is 674'

As of Feb 4, it was 652?

 

Does getting a 2x CLI last week have anything to do with it?   Maybe they updated my score when they soft pulled me?

 

The Walmart TU is really close to  a lender pulled TU a few weeks ago of 676, so that gives me a little more confidence in the validity/accuracy of the Walmart score.

Yes, when you log into your online account for your Walmart credit card, you should select paperless billing and then you will start receiving a free monthly TU score.

Oh NICE.... Thanks a lot for pointing that out..  I'm check'n it out now..  I opened the card back in Oct 2012 and they gave me a 600.00 credit limit and I just noticed on my latest account login they automatically bumped it up to a WHOLE 800.00..  LOL..  My Equifax Fico is 713.. Was surprised the CL was so low..

That's pretty much my main reason for getting a Walmart credit card - for the free monthly TU Fico score.  Smiley Very Happy  Although I do a lot of my grocery shopping at Walmart and when I use the card there, I often get $100 cash back (nice feature!).

 

There's a backdoor number in the sticky for GE/Walmart underwriting.  Tons of people have had great success with calling them up and asking for bigger CLIs.  You should give them a call and see what they can do for you.  You have a good EQ score, but what's your TU score like?  I guess you will find out if you enroll in paperless billing today!  Anyway, GE/Walmart makes their decisions based on your TU score 99% of the time.
