Pre-Approved for Walmart Store Card

Imagine my surprise when signing on to the Walmart website to so a little shopping for some Headphones for the hubby and when I went to check out found out I was pre-approved for the Walmart credit card!!!Smiley Happy  I was very surprised because back in late January I was denied TWICE ( I applied- instant denial and then recon-denied).  The application had most of my information already filled in and all I had to do was hit the button.  I did and was approved!Smiley Happy

 

Happy! This card will get a lot of use because they just opened a Super Walmart in my area!!!! Yay!!! Plus I'm happy to get the free TU Fico Score each month! No longer have to pay for it here on MyFIco for $19.99!!

It should be a hard pull.  I have not gotten a peep from SW or QM for the DM card I apped on Feb 23.  Did 2 BT's already. TU got the HP, yet here I sit, waiting for SW or QM to let me know about a new account.... Or a HP. Or a FICO change from a HP.

Would love to know if there's a way to see about pre approval without buying something.
