Re: No card in the mail today

I'm in the same sitaution as the OP, I applied saturday and was approved. I really want to use it for my next fillup, I am right below a 1/4 a tank, and the $0.15 discount would put gas under $3. 

You can access you account online if you have access to your experian credit report, mine reported next day, it only gives you the first 12 digits but if you logon to your walmart account you can see the last four.

Then calling the 800 number to activate it, blah blah blah, yeah yeah yeah, no I dont' want the insurance, yes I already have credit monitoring, just activate it already... and then peeling that sticker off the front making sure it leaves no residue.  Then slowly admiring it's glory as you slide it so gently inside your wallet.   Oh, so sensual.
